Free Wi-Fi launched at Clare Glen Caravan Park near Tandragee

Armagh City and District Council has launched free Wi-Fi at Clare Glen Caravan Park, outside Tandragee, allowing visitors to access the internet from their tablet or smartphone while staying at the park.

At the launch this week, Armagh City and District Council Leisure Services Officer, Paul Hanna said: “The Council is committed to developing visitor services and the introduction of the free Wi-Fi at Clare Glen Caravan Park is a significant development in this service offering.”

The Caravan Park is set within the beautiful Clare Glen on the banks of the Cusher River and is located approximately 1 mile outside Tandragee on the Markethill road. It includes twenty five touring pitches which are suitable for tents, caravans and motorhomes.

Each pitch is on a hard stand with individual electric hook-ups, water and drainage and each site is also large enough to park a car. The amenity building is located centrally in the caravan park and contains all necessary modern amenities.  The launch of free Wi-Fi has made Clare Glen Caravan Park an even more desirable place to visit.

Mr Gary Albin, Information Services Officer for Armagh City and District Council, was influential in installing the free Wi-Fi at Clare Glen.

He explained “We were asked to look at the possibly of installing a solution at Clare Glen that would enable customers to access the internet as there was no reliable 3G access in the area.  We have already used wireless solutions in other council locations and found that the vender provided a suitable outdoor range for Clare Glen, so following installation we are able to offer customers a reliable internet connection with the appropriate controls in place for fair use.”

If you love the great outdoors, Clare Glen Caravan Park is perfect. Bookings may be made by contacting Tandragee Recreation Centre, Monday-Friday, 9.00am-9.00pm, and Saturday, 9.00am-5.00pm, by telephoning 028 3884 1110, or by emailing trc@armagh.gov.uk.

In addition, to celebrate the launch of Free Wi-Fi, there will be an attractive Autumn/Winter Special Offer where visitors can stay for two nights and get a third consecutive night for free. Nightly rates are £13 per caravan and £10 per tent.
