    Fuzz due to senior moments, buzz because look out Southern Ireland I is heading your way for two whole months.:Smile: Any advice on wild camping in this region gratefully received. Also reasonably priced, dog friendly campsites will be a must, at least twice weekly, for laundry and showers.
    Yeah, this disabled pensioner and her dog are taking to the road again. My van is so tiny you couldn't swing a mouse. Done the Dodge Concorde followed by the Transit conversion. Now, believe it or not, I've shrunk the home again. Hey I love pub grub and talking to the natives :Laughing:, shame I'm tea total.

    Hi, Well don't forget to come our way. Westport house has a campsite in the grounds also has a bar and pub grub. Further along the coast is Lecanvey there's a campsite there, don't know about the amenities sorry, but just down the road is Stauntons pub very good 'Craic' had by all in there. a bit further along is Old Head, Louisburgh, lovely beaches and campsite at the top of the hill complete with icecream parlour. People usually wild camp on the pier, teens like to use it and spoil it though. Also a pub in the old hotel, nr campsite, but only open in the summer I think. In Louisburgh there's the Grainne Uaille (Grace O'Malley) interpretive centre which tells you about the Pirate Queen who lived on Clare island, it's in the Library.
    If you carry on thru Louisburgh, don't blink you'll miss it, take the left turn after the bridge and carry on to Lenane via Ashleagh falls doing this you'll follow the famine route which is walked every year on the last Sun in May to commemorate the people of Louisburgh walking to the Killary to get grain during the famine.This is the most impressive way to see Doo Lough With the mountains circling it. After the falls turn rt for Lenane, The Field was filmed here. Go to Clifton seeing Kylmore abbey on the way.
    In Clifton try to head Ballyconealy, I think you might be able to wild camp next to the beach or go to Dogs Bay where ther is a campsite, not sure about MH though. After that carry on to Roundstone.

    Also don't forget the other side of Clew Bay and visit Achill Island beautifull beaches to be had there and there's a campground at Keel over looking the beach and sea. This is a busy flat site as it's a great surfing beach.



    Phew finished I think! I think I've done my bit for Irish tourism!!
    Any questions PM me, that goes for anyone else too.
    Also if your in Louisburgh on the 25th June we have our horse show which has a dog show too, thats a laugh, and the following Sunday(3rd July) there's horse racing on the beach just outside town. I have photos of these up on here.

    thanks for info

    Will certainly be in touch, am planning to leave here first week of June. Late May have daughter, son and friends visiting so as they leave my journey begins.
    I plan to travel from Rosslare through Cork and then up the west coast to Sligo, where my late hsbands family have roots. My daughter is going to join me for a week in Sligo.
    I wish that I had more than 2 months but intend to see as much as I can in that time, without rushing.
    Thankyou so much for the time taken and the wealth of information included, :thumb: I hope one day we will meet.
