Through Ireland by motorhome

In Ireland, the rugged countryside is just crying out to be discovered on a motorhome journey. Almost nowhere in Europe will you find such unspoilt nature as here. Spread across the country are many natural pearls that are perfect to visit with a campervan. Besides the beautiful nature, the country also offers some very cosy cities where you will get to know the Irish culture during your motorhome trip with a pint of Guinness in your hand in one of the many cosy pubs. Cheers!

Motorhome-trip through Ireland

Ireland is the perfect destination for a good change between nature and city on a motorhome tour. Typical Irish cities such as Dublin, Cork and Galway are located throughout the country, but also nature can be admired from a campervan. There's the Irish coast with its sights like the Cliffs of Moher, but the national parks like the impressive Killarney National Park are also worth a visit during your motorhome journey. So there's plenty to discover in rugged Ireland!

With the permission of any landowner, you can camp freely in Ireland. Along the road or on car parks this is allowed for 24 hours. A good way to get to know the real Ireland!

Unfortunately, there are not (yet) many official camper sites in Ireland. In Ireland there are about 50 official camper pitches spread over the country, many of them are very beautiful. Most of them are located at the coast, for example close to the city of Cork. Perhaps one of the most beautiful motorhome parks on the west coast is at the famous Cliffs of Moher, where you will find a set of rugged limestone cliffs. Further inland, there are also plenty of campervan parks, including in the varied Wicklow Mountains National Park, where you can head out for a nice walk.

Motorhome routes through Ireland

Ireland has plenty of wonderful motorhome routes to choose from. The Wild Atlantic Way stretches 2500 kilometres along the rugged coastline and is the longest tourist coastal route in the world. The Causeway Coastal Route is also an impressive way to discover Ireland by motorhome. The route goes from Belfast to Londonderry. In addition, the Ring of Kerry is often regarded as one of the country's most scenic motorhome routes. It takes you along the impressive south west coast of Ireland by campervan. The campervan routes all have one thing in common as they all introduce you to the rugged Irish countryside in all its glory! Finally, you can also create your own motorhome route through the varied interior of the country, with its many lakes, forests and impressive views.
