    maybe need Ireland Touring forum ?

    Hi all - can anyone recommend any campsites in N/Ireland & Ireland with access suitable for RV :Smile:

    We've booked ferry crossing Cairnryan > Larne - bit of a hike up there, but short crossing for our dogs :RollEyes:

    So starting at Ballymoney (this will be a lot of ballymoney !) we have booked our first site, which is not far from the Giant's Causeway :Cool: We will then work our way down to Southern Ireland anti-clockwise.

    Any site info would be helpful - thanks :thumb:

    julia

    ps: does anyone know if our old Tom Tom Go700 will work in Southern Ireland

    Try googling we spent 2 weeks there just after Easter but didn't go north can recomend Trading Post just north of Wexford, Camac on the Naas Road out of Dublin and Treegrove just outside Kilkenny we got on these site with our 34' RV, I did e'mail some others before I left England and they all replied that they could accomodate our RV.

    Regards Pat

    Site at Ballyshannon Co Donegal

    :thumb::thumb:Julia

    There is an excellent site at Ballyshannon, Co Donegal that would easily take you outfit. It has beautiful views across the lake and is situated on the left on the road from Ballyshannon to Beleek - that of course is with a visit also - the place where they make the famous Bleek Pottery.

    Have a wonderful time

    Jack the Rev.
