Want to experience a holiday on caravan park but don't have the equipment, don't panic



We all have friends who have been enjoying caravan & camping holidays for years, regaling us with stories of the joys of outdoor living, the freedom for the kids and the easy pace of life.  You often wish you could experience this but don’t have a caravan or motorhome.  Have you ever thought about renting a motorhome or caravan and touring around Ireland at your leisure, or hiring a mobile home or pod onsite?  Camping Ireland has a number of ways you can enjoy a caravan park holiday even if you don’t own the equipment.


  1.    Hire a motorhome or caravan

There are a number of companies hiring motorhomes and caravans in Ireland.  You can rent for a few days or longer.  You can also opt to have your rented caravan placed on a particular site for your holiday which will be delivered and collected for you.  Motorhomes range in size from the small 2 berth compact units to the large 6 berth.   You can pick up your motorhome from a range of companies right around the country and take to the roads at your leisure.  Motorhomes and caravans are very self-sufficient with plenty sleeping room, fully equipped cooking area, some have toilet and shower on board, have access to electric points and all give you the freedom to travel around at your leisure.  There are over 90 sites throughout the Island of Ireland that you can stop off at overnight.  Sites will have electric hook-up where you can hook-up your motorhome or caravan and have full power for the night.  Stay for a couple of nights or move on in the morning to your next destination, the choice is yours.
