Ireland is a wonderful destination for people who love the great outdoors and enjoy holidays where they can surround themselves with nature and wonderful sights. There is no shortage of camp sites in the country, offering everything from luxury glamping options to traditional camping and motorhome pitches too.
In Ireland you can find camp site options to suit all kinds of requirements, whether you are travelling as a family, with a group of friends, or as a couple. A number of sites cater for motorhomes so you can pick several of them and map your route across the country, taking in the sights you want to see along the way.
The Hidden Valley Holiday Park in County Wicklow is a fantastic option for motorhomes and is just 90 minutes drive from Dublin. The site has an array of great facilities, including an adventure park for children and cinema nights. It is surrounded by countryside so visitors can enjoy cycling and hiking in the Wicklow’s mountains. The main selling point of the site though is the Avonmore River. It runs through it, giving people the opportunity to go fishing, kayaking and sailing.
The Ring of Kerry is one of the most incredible scenic drives in the whole world. It is a must see for visitors to Ireland taking a motorhome trip. It is 179km long and takes people on a route through verdant landscapes and rural picturesque seaside villages.
If you plan on taking in the Ring of Kerry Wave Crest Caravan and Camping is a great site for a stopping point. It overlooks Kenmare Bay, offering unspoilt sea views. The site is special because it combines civilisation and wildness. Many of the plots are tucked in private spots for those who want peace and quiet. There is plenty of facilities and attractions to enjoy, including water sports and sandy beaches.
Knockalla Caravan and Camping Park is a third great option for motorhome drivers. It is a well established family friendly site in the north of the country. The location is ideal, between Knockalla Mountain and the beautiful golden beaches at Ballymastocker Bay. Water sports and hiking opportunities are plentiful in the area.

One additional note of advice we have to offer concerns wild camping. In Ireland much of the land is privately owned so there are not too many placed you can camp in the wild. It is a good idea to have spaces at sites booked in advance so you don’t get caught out.
