Eire & N.Ireland after Covid19

Hi All

I hope you are all keeping safe in these strange times.

Once Covid19 has finally gone we are thinking of sailing over to Ireland for a 3 week tour.

Anyone any idea which if any are the best sites to use and all the sights we should see.

cheers
Dave

Probably not much can be added to what is available here: https://forums.motorhomefacts.com/93-ireland-touring/

Brexiters. It's your sh1t now. Whatever happens nationally and internationally you own it. I wish you luck. I think you're going to need all you can get and then some. Friday 13th December 2019.

In the south it'll be July 20th at earliest before campsites are open. Not sure about the north.

Have a look at the Motorhome Parking Ireland app, tho there are very few spots on the free version. Or Park4night.

It is quite a few years since we were there. We found that the roads made travel much slower than our plans had allowed for. Hopefully all changed with EU money input.

A good place to get current advice Is the Irish based forum Motorhomecraic.

You are spoilt for choice of lovely campsites and wild spots in the Sth and West of Ireland ,easily googled up but when you are done with that and heading North possibly towards Sligo then I can recommend our little favorite campsite at Lough Arrow . Here's a little clip I made a while ago which shows the campsite and other things very close by , it's a few years old now and new owners have taken over since then and made lots of improvements but still maintained the friendly charm that we have come to love about the place ...and best of all , there's still no children allowed.

ps I had some good news recently and it looks like I'll still be alive and kicking then, so maybe see you there.
