Hi folks we’re quite new to the game but since we got our van last May we have spent nearly every weekend and several weeks holidays camping in Northern Ireland and Ireland. We live in NI and have some good insider info on safe sites etc.
If anyone is planning a trip feel free to drop us a line and we can let you know some great spots in the area.
areas we know best are Donegal, Antrim (north/east coast) Galway and Clare, we are planning to get to know the east and south coast this spring/summer
all the best RachMarch 19, 2017 at 2:49 pm #153794ArthurParticipant
We are hoping to visit Ireland for about a month in April and May 2018. This is our first trip to Ireland and we hope to walk the Kerry Way and spend a bit of time in our campervan exploring this area and the Dingle peninsula. We prefer wild camping, but expect that we will have to spend the odd night on sites.Can you recommend any areas for wild camping and any reasonable sites in that area. We are also hoping to spend a few days near the Giants Causeway and also a few days in the south east (south of Dublin). Again, any thoughts on wild camping spots or sights would be appreciated. The other issue is security and the attitude in these areas to wild camping as we have heard that it is not welcomed in some places.
Kind regardsApril 21, 2017 at 6:36 pm #153873jacque50Participant
We are travelling to Belfast next week and are in search of safe and secure wild spots to park up.
Any suggestions welcome
