    Hi,
    Just planning a14-18 day round trip of S. Ireland, starting at Dublin then heading south (clockwise) round to Kerry (6-day stay) and ending up in Galway before returning to Dublin. Never visited this part of the world, so any tips on the following would be greatly appreciated!

    * good site for 2 night stay close to Dublin with easy public transport access into the city
    * good route/places to visit/stay on way to Kerry
    * Kerry sites info
    * Kerry sights accessible by motorhome (day trips)
    * good route/places to visit/stay on way from Kerry to Galway
    * Galway sites info
    * Galway sights accessible by motorhome (day trips)

    This will be our first big trip (newbies!!) so any other general things to watch out for??

    Hi

    Enjoy Ireland! Visit Kinsale (south of Cork) and it is very safe to park overnight on the quay - in fact lots of camper do so. No far from Kinsale is Garretstown - a wonderful beach to sit and watch the surfers - again you can stay overnight by the beach. Further round look out for Inch beach - again a great place to park up overnight. Have fun!

    In Tramore you’ll be able to park along the promenade and watch the surfers, come out of town on the R675, through Annestown, there’s a massive lay-by over looking the ocean, wild camp in here and watch for the sea life that passes by, dolphins, minky whales etc, we’ve wild camped along this coast, a must is Mizen Head, as far west as you can get, with no light pollution, just the roar of the ocean and the stars. I’m sure some others will come up with other places, we did the coast route all the way up to Sligo in the north, the people are very friendly.

    For your two days in Dublin (or an overnighter for that matter) Camac Valley on the Naas Road is the one.
    There is a tourist bus that picks up and drops off at the site entrance or if you walk out of the site onto the road you can pick up a normal service bus into the city.
    There is lots to do and see in Dublin City and you should enjoy yourself.
