Campsites in Ireland
Finding campsites in ireland is no difficult task, there are sites spread throughout the country. Hy Breasal in Connaught county is a great place to stay over for the night. It is situated just over the bridge to Achill island, where you can enjoy the wild majesty of the Atlantic without being too exposed to it. As you reach the south coast, just past the village of Courtmacsherry stop off at the tucked away Harbour View Dunes campsite, a beautiful sandy spot that as you might expect provides a picturesque view of the harbour. Just remember that it is a small site and free to stay at, so you should check availability to make sure you have a spot when you get there.
Things to do in Ireland
Of the many things to do in Ireland, one thing that is always recommended is to take things slow and relax. You can enjoy a much more relaxed pace of life in the Irish countryside so make sure to embrace it and not be in a rush. The other thing is to keep in mind that you may want to plan your next trip sooner than you think! There is something about visiting the emerald isle that will just make you want to come back (perhaps it’s how lovely and relaxed everything is).
One of the most renowned journeys you can do in a motorhome in Ireland is the ‘Wild Atlantic Way’ a route that roughly circumnavigates two thirds of the island, focusing on the western coastline. Since a lot of the route involves being sandwiched between the awesome Atlantic ocean and the gorgeous rolling hills and mountains of the west coast it is easy to lose yourself in the nature that surrounds you. If you are a history fan make sure to check out Ireland’s many historical attractions, such as the Newgrange Stone Age monument in the Boyne Valley or the Hill of Tara which according to tradition was the seat of the High King of Ireland.
Events in Ireland
While there are many events in Ireland from food festivals to history days, one event really stands out. If you are lucky enough to be there in mid March, you will likely find yourself involved in some memorable revelry for St Patrick’s day! For the ultimate experience of celebrating Irish culture on this day, head into Dublin for the 17th March to see the street parade that covers much of the city and is full of dazzling colours and amazing craftsmanship. It really seems to get better every year, so if you missed out on this year be sure to head there for the next one!
