Camping has become a very popular holiday option for many families in Ireland. Kids love the excitement of camping and lots of camping parks now have fantastic facilities. It’s also a great way to save a few euro, so you won’t have to spend a fortune to have a fun holiday.
Park members of the Irish Caravan and Camping Council (ICC) have excellent facilities to ensure you have a comfortable and enjoyable experience. Many park members have:
  • First class shower and washing facilities
  • Glamping options like microlodges for those who want an extra bit of comfort
  • Children’s amenities like pitch and putt courses & playgrounds
  • Nearby attractions for the whole family to enjoy
Visit the Camping Ireland website here for information on almost 100 ICC Failte Ireland registered and classified parks. You will also find special offers and information on the sale and hire of camping equipment on the website. Or pick up the 2012 Ireland Caravan, Camping & Motorhome Guide in tourist offices nationwide for full pricing and contact details of ICC parks.
Here are some useful tips for first-time campers:
  • Research what parks to visit and plan your route using  the Camping Ireland website here
  • Book early or ring ahead to make sure there’s availability, particularly in the peak season months of July and August.
  • Get to know your camping neighbours and don’t be afraid to ask them for a helping hand.
  • Pack sensibly – Ireland can experience all seasons in one day, even during the summer, so pack accordingly.
  • Compile a checklist so you’ll only bring what you think you’ll use
