    Do Stena allow dogs as no provision for adding them on line.

    What it like driving on their roads with an RV?

    Is 12 days enough to take in the sites?

    Has anyone been with an RV and whats the sites attitude to them?

    Thinking of going via Rossclare via fishguard.

    Whats the must see and do's?

    Booking in July is it possible as might be able to work some time away.

    Irish Tour

    Hi John

    Go onto our website front page - click on the tab RV Stories and look at Chapter three onwards for our two month tour of Ireland in our 36ft Monaco Cayman complete with 18ft Car trailer as well.

    Ireland in an RV is not a problem, unless you try and drive throgh Cork at rush hour - not advised if you suffer from heart problems :RollEyes:

    Ferry fare from Pembroke - Rosslare return was £450 three years ago.

    Hi John

    Some of the road in Ireland are very narrow. Main road are fine you would have no problem. Beware of Tourist buses on the road like on the Ring of Kerry, as they will not slow down they will try to force you of the road.

    Yes the ferries will allow dogs to stay in MH.

    12 days is very short. You could do the south coast Wexford to Kerry.

    July is busy as most people are on holidays here as well.

    Hope this helps.
