Hi smurfinguk
I joined SafenightsIreland last year but didn't actually use any of their locations as I found as I was going around Ireland especially in the West of Ireland I found plenty of wild camping locations. Some remote and others in villages and towns. Biggest problem sometimes is locating public toilets for emptying cassette and accessing water tap.
I used a Dutch website which has identified a large number of safe locations and has listed the GPS co-ordinates.

This will give you the map of Ireland with motorhome symbols and you just magnify the location and hold your cursor over the relevant symbol and it will show the location name and a number. If you click on 'list' at the top of the page it will open a numerical list of locations with the GPS co-ordinates.
Hope this helps

Just looked up one of the sites we've used on the Dutch site and found a magic camper.

Click one step right and watch it appear...............magic

Lived on Ireland for 22 year and never used a campsite.. Find somewhere peacefully and park for the night. We often parked up in the middle of a village for the night no problem at all. As for water there are lots of cemetery's to get water from or just pull up at a farm and ask, no one will bite your head off some will even let you stay for the night. We loved in Sligo on the edge of lough gill beautiful spot and a viewing point to park up on too..

We stayed in a site in Mayo called the Hermitage Mediataion Centre. It is outside the village of Drummin, Westport. The guy who owns it says he is registered with Safe Nights Ireland but he didn't mind that we weren't members. This place is stunning, behind Croagh Patrick. It cost us ten euro for the night. Good parking. We were going home the next day or we would have stayed another night.
We have booked in for two nights in August.
