Delamont Country Park
This beautiful 200 acre site is just a short drive from Belfast and its ferry terminal, meaning it is easily reachable for people from the rest of the UK. It sits on the banks of Strangford Lough with its abundance of wildlife and fishing spots. The Mourne Mountains are also visible from the park and just another short drive away.
There are all kinds of sights and attractions to enjoy in Delamont Country Park, including a miniature railway and Castle Ward mansion and gardens. There are all kinds of events throughout the year including falconry displays, kite flying and markets from local producers. There is a local campsite adjacent to the site so you can stay in this great location and truly enjoy the setting.
Newcastle, County Down
Just an hour away from Belfast, Newcastle is a great location for motorhome fans. There are a multitude of campsites in the area and you’ll have the same amazing views of the Mourne Mountains to enjoy because the town sits at the base of Slieve Donard. On top of this there are beaches in the area and a large number of nature walks to enjoy.
The biggest attraction in the area, and its most famous site is the Royal County Down Golf Club, a 120+ year old course that is home to the Irish Open. The club is one of the most beautiful in the world and offers unbeatable views for players. Golfers will love to be based here because there are also several other courses in the area too.
This destination has been popular for many years with campers and motorhome fanatics because of the stunning Giant’s Causeway. The natural volcanic phenomenon is very rare and a beautiful sight to behold. There is a visitor centre on the site to provide more information about how it was formed, including the geographical story and the legend about warring giants.
The County is also home to the 400 year old Antrim Castle Gardens. The site is home to stunning blooms, a gallery and Clotworthy House where you can learn about the history of the gardens and the Massereene family.
