Immerse yourself in the beauty of Northern Ireland and follow in the footsteps of giants

When it comes to scenic spots Northern Ireland is truly blessed with some of the most spectacular on the Island of Ireland.  From the Mourne Mountains to the breath-taking Causeway Coast and Glens, a visit to Northern Ireland will be a truly unforgettable experience.  Base yourself in one of the many quality touring parks around the region and explore all the wonderful places and sites of Northern Ireland.  Check out the sites on www.campingireland.ie

 

One of the best coastal drives in the world, the Causeway Coastal Route stretches from Belfast to Derry/Londonderry and brings you past breathtaking scenery and unforgettable experiences.  Along the way you can walk the Gobbins Cliff Path, clinging to the rugged edges of the County Antrim coast, cross the exhilarating Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge that links the mainland with tiny, craggy Carrick Island, or visit the working lighthouse and newly refurbished RSPB seabird centre on the beautiful Rathlin Island.

 

A must see is the Giant’s Causeway, a UNESCO World Heritage site consisting of 40,000 hexagonal basalt columns tumbling into the ocean. No visit to Northern Ireland is complete without a walk across its epic stepping stones.  Also, nearby is the Bushmills distillery well worth a visit for all whiskey lovers.  A visit to Belfast is a must.  Northern Ireland’s first city, Belfast, is known for a lot of things: it was the birthplace of legendary ocean liner Titanic and is now home to a world-class visitor experience, Titanic Belfast.  Antrim has a selection of top quality caravan & camping sites located within in easy reach of many of these great attractions and sites.  Stay for a night or a couple of days and use the park as your base to tour around.

 

In County Down, you'll find Northern Ireland’s largest mountain range, the Mourne Mountains, beloved of hillwalkers and rock climbers, and boasting some of the most dramatic scenery in Ireland.  Drive the Mourne Coastal Route from Belfast to Newry for the ultimate Mournes tour or follow in the footsteps of 18th century smugglers on the "Brandy Path" – one of the many walking trails through the mountains.  You can pitch up along the coastal route or inland and travel around the great locations and attractions Down has to offer.

 

From saintly trails to galactic tales, County Armagh is the perfect place for lovers of Celtic history, early Christianity, architecture and literature. Take time to explore the Orchard County, the historic Armagh city, ancient sites nearby and the natural beauty of the Ring of Gullion.  Well worth a visit is St. Patrick’s Cathedral.  Take a guided or self-guided tour and view its design, stained glass windows, mosaics and shimmering gold leaf sculptures.

 

 

For a county without a coastline it may be surprising to learn that Fermanagh is a water lover’s paradise.  Fermanagh has an amazing abundance of lakes, rivers, inlets and waterways. Either island-hop via kayak or canoe, take a tranquil cruise, cycle waterside or trek the mountains.  Pitch your tent or hook-up your caravan for a couple of days and enjoy the peace and tranquility in this unique place.

 

From the Sperrin Mountains to Gortin Glen, County Tyrone’s great natural spaces make it a superb outdoor playground for young and old alike. It’s the ideal place for a family break with fun-filled activities abound.  So if you are an outdoor person Tyrone is a great place to visit.  Fish on the River Mourne, mountain bike through some of the great trails or walk in the many mountain trails dotted around the county.  Staying in Tyrone allows you to travel around and visit the many great spots in Northern Ireland.

 

So wherever you chose to stay in Northern Ireland there is so much to see and do.  Stay a night, stay a week, stay for longer.  Use one of the many top quality graded campsites throughout the region and best assured of top quality accommodation in great locations.  Enjoy the independence and flexibility that caravan & camping can offer in only quality approved sites.  Our gates are open and looking forward to welcoming you to outdoor living.
