Where to go in Ireland in your Motorhome Rental

There are holiday parks and caravan and camping sites that will accept motorhomes, campervans and recreational vehicles with great locations and facilities at localities throughout Ireland on your motorhome holiday.
East Coast & Midlands:
The east and midlands of Ireland are lush and green, with some of the country's best known beaches sitting along the coastline. Rush Beach is north of Dublin city, the capital, and Brittas Bay lies south as you drive your motorhome rental through the “Garden of Ireland.” Drive to the ancient seat of the High Kings of Ireland at Tara.
Overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, this region enjoys a slightly Mediterranean climate, providing some of the best strawberries in the world! The southern region is draped in particularly beautiful, open landscape. As with any area in Ireland, there are a multitude of historical and heritage sights to tour by campervan hire. Stop in any fishing village to enjoy the freshest seafood.
Landscape that is unique to Ireland awaits you as you take your campervan rental along the rugged, Atlantic-beaten western coast of Ireland. Rich in limestone, the rocky landscape is at its most intriguing in the Burren, leading along to the Cliffs of Moher. Get lost on country roads with old-style dry stone walls fencing in sheep and cattle.
Similar, but never the same, the landscape in the north of the Island takes your breath away. Stop at the basalt formations of the Giants Causeway in the northeast and give your motorhome a day off with an open-top bus tour of Belfast city, where the Titanic was built.
* When traveling into Northern Ireland there is no border crossing, but the currency changes from the Euro to the British Pound Sterling. Many vendors on the border area accept both currencies.
No matter where in Ireland you choose, your campervan holiday is guaranteed to take you deep into the welcoming Irish culture. Make sure to enjoy Guinness responsibly!
