There are so many great places to visit in Ireland. To get you started, we are sharing some of our favourite spots for motorhome owners and have picked five fabulous destinations for you to explore. We definitely recommend checking these out if you haven’t done so already. Motorhomes offer so much freedom and flexibility, so there is really no excuse to not take in everything that this magnificent country has to offer.

What an amazing area. One of the best things about Dingle is that you are able to park at the Pier overnight and explore at your leisure by day. Dingle really has it all, during the day you can walk barefoot along the glorious beaches, cycle around Slea Head or take in the surf in Brandon bay. It has incredible pubs and restaurants (great seafood) with no shortage of trad music sessions either. This place is full of character and characters - not to mention Fungie. Fantastic for all ages whether you are a family, retired or in your early twenties - get ready to soak in the relaxed but vibrant atmosphere of magical Dingle.

This is your gateway to the Mizen Peninsula in West Cork, Ballydehob’s rural charms, rich heritage and rustic beauty is complimented by a small yet diverse population, eclectic music & festival culture and abundant artistic community. Nestled on Roaringwater Bay alond the Wild Atlantic Way.

If you know you know. A favourite among many motorhome owners. Dick is one of life’s true gentlemen. Dick’s field is located beside Ardmore beach in Co. Waterford alongside Anna village which is within walking distance with pubs, restaurants and takeaway. It costs 10 euro to stay per night. This is a very popular spot, so it’s best to ring ahead to check if there are spaces.
This pick is close to our own hearts and only a stone throw away from our showrooms, how lucky we are. The lakeshore is dotted with picturesque villages and marinas with an excellent variety of restaurants and pubs, many with live traditional music sessions. There is an abundance of walking trails, boat hire, canoeing, standup kayaking, horse riding, and lots of Brian Boru relics to discover. Whatever you choose, a visit to the magical Lough Derg will leave you relaxed, inspired and re-energized! If you are planning a trip here, certainly drop in for some tea/coffee and a chat.

We chose Westport because of the variety of things to do for all ages, not taking from the fact that it is a charming town in a remote part of Ireland with rugged beauty all round. Plenty to see and do including the Great Western Greenway, Achill Island, Clew Bay with its 365 islands, Westport House and Croagh Patrick. Take in the fresh air, kick back and relax.
