Irish campsites

Post by merv on Sun May 29, 2016 3:53 pm

Has anyone got any campsite recommendations (in Ireland) for a site or sites anywhere roughly between Cork and Rosslare. They don't have to be on the coast and since we're staying for much of our time in Ireland with relatives in Cork we won't be staying more than a couple of nights on any site.  We won't have children or dogs with us.
I have got the Irish camping guide and used sites from there on a visit 2 years ago, but haven't used any in the area between Cork and Rosslare.

Hi,
Although we have not stayed at it since the kids grew up, we used to stay at Caseys at Clonea strand just east of Dungarvan. It was a well appointed site with (then) the cleanest toilets we ever used.

There is also an aire by the sea at Ardmore which again is not to far from Dungarvan. It is effectively a field with water and disposal run by the farmer. Perfectly adequate and about €10 per night.

I hear good reports of Ferrybank at Rosslare, but no personal experience of this one.

My father always stayed at Blarney campsite, although that is just west of Cork. Bus to the city passes gate.

motorhomecraic.com the Ireland wide forum has just launched an android app (other systems in the pipeline) it is brand new and offers loads of advice on stopping places which I assume includes some proper sites, although most people are into wilding. Still I think it will be worth the £5 I believe it costs.

If I think of any other sites I will let you know.

Enjoy your visit.

Depends what you want
Best advice I can give you is to join Motorhomecraic very much a forum similar to this one.

You can join for free but there are many benefits from becoming a full member think it is £10 p.a. not sure as I have taken out a lifetime membership, they make you very welcome.
I have the same name on both sites

For a taster have a look at the site

Like Davys dad I like the Blarney site but as he says it's a bit close to Cork.    
 Another of my favourite spots is wild camping at the Hook Lighthouse but this may be a bit close to 
Rosslare for you but it is a lovely spot (weather permitting)

We stayed at Fitzmaurice's at Tramore a few years ago. It was still there when we were there the week before last, although we stayed on the prom. Facilities were a bit basic but it was a nice enough place and close enough to the strand:

It's a funny little town; the bit up the hill is nicer than the bit by the beach really. Victoria House is probably the nicest pub.

Stayed here last week:

It's the wrong side of Cork for you, but if you're venturing to West Cork it's worth a stop. Not cheap (few of them are) but really nice, lovely people and not far from Timoleague which is a nice little place. Hard cycling back up the hill though; needed a pint of stout when I got back.
