In Ireland, you are spoilt for choice with a beautiful country full of stunning scenery and plenty for everyone – whether a romantic escape with picturesque views, a challenging terrain for adrenaline junkies, or wide open spaces for kids to play safely and enjoy the countryside. Here are a few of the best places for camping in Ireland…
Offaly – Head to the Glenregan wild camping area – perfect for families looking for a holiday away from it all, the terrain is beautiful and also flat, so no mountaineering here! You will also be able to spot the local wildlife if you are lucky, as this is also the home to herds of deer.
Ballyconneely – This remote and beautiful beach is the perfect escape from it all – for a romantic and secluded camping trip you can’t beat Doonloughan Beach – you may even fancy a dip in the clear and still waters of the bay.
The Wicklow Mountains – The National Park is the place for hill walkers and mountaineers – the best thing is you can camp anywhere here, as long as you are not in Glendalough – leaving the rest of the park your choice!
