Gary MN has indicated that this thread is about Ireland

We are planning to visit Ireland this coming Summer, and wonder about renting a campermobile there and staying in campgrounds. Can anyone tell us if there are plenty of campgrounds that accommodate campermobiles in Ireland? Thanks, Gary

Hello Gary

In my campsite section, of my travel book, there is no mention of whether they can accomodate campmobiles or not. I think this is a bad sign, for u.

If u want, u could phone one of the campsites, and ask, if they have such facilities. They will also know, if these facilities are commonly provided in other Irish campsites.
Here is one u could try, if u want to phone.
Comac Valley Caravan and Camping Park
Phone 01 464 0644
If u dial, from outside Ireland, drop the 0, at the beginning, of the number.

dont quote me on this or put you off, as what i am about to say is not fact based.

but from my experience i DONT see many camp sites at all when i travel about ireland and i rarely see camper vans too!

but maybe if i was into the camping aspect then maybe there is a few but no were near as many as any other country in europe.

plenty of campsites? i reckon the word would be 'limited amount of campsites' in ireland.

what Mel most importantly forgot to add is the international code for dialling to ireland is 00353-1-THE NUMBER TO DIAL dropping the zero..in this case...0353-1-464 0644

Hi,

Facilties in Ireland will not be a good as the US or Continental Europe. I suggest you go to www.camping-ireland.ie -> pick out camp sites in the counties you plan to visit and contact them for further info.

Best of luck,

Hi Gary MN,

you will find soem camp sites in Ireland, mainly around the big tourist attractions such as Cliffs of Moher etc. I have seen people camping in them with campervans.

There aren't a lot though so you may end up in B&Bs some nights? but they are a dime a dozen and generally pretty cheap.

I would go for the campervan option as you will generally find somewhere - ask the locals they are always good to help and may even let you camp in their paddock!! and then bring you a hot Irish breakfast out in the morning!

Sometimes the not knowing and spontaneity is half the fun!

Good Luck, whatever you do you will enjoy Ireland anyway, it is a great country, the drivers are shocking! but the people are lovely.
