    Thinking of going over to the West coast of Ireland at Easter around the Galway area. Does any one have any advice on best places to go, or can recommend any good Camp sites, potential of Wild Camping and places well worth a visit, or any other welcome advice.

    We stayed on a nice site at Glenbeigh overlooking Dingle Bay and on the Ring of Kerry, for us a must.
    Sites are not cheap and wild camping restricted as most lay bys have height barriers.
    Lovely friendly people (y)

    BritStops promises that there will be stops in Ireland in the upcoming edition.

    Might be worth checking out :)

    Can highly recommend Actons Eco Camping near Clifden. It's a beautiful place and the owner Kris and his family are very helpful. In Galway there are a few sites near the city itself and the ones located in Salthill have mixed reviews. I am from Galway City so have never stayed on any of the sites in the city as just park up at relatives!

    In Co Clare you will find Doolin has a good site which has been recommended to us by others we have met in our travels over there. Near to the pub and great if you are into traditional irish music.

    Just recently Galway corporation have banned MH parking at the docks area in Galway - motorhome Craic had the full story. There was designated parking there and you could even get elec and water for a small fee. I know there were protests planned against the decision and I don't know what's happening now. It's a real shame as it was very like an Aire and there were always MH's parked up.

    Doolin is the best known place for traditional music on that part of the west coast, but a little further south is Doonbeg - less well known but together with Miltown Malbay (between the two) is another great place for music. Doonbeg has its own Funster owned campsite too!
