Explore the best of Ireland together in a luxury Campervan
Summer season may be over but there is still a lot going on in September and October, if you fancy a quick break away! Looking for an unforgettable weekend trip in Ireland? Whether you are an Irish couple escaping the busy week, or a couple flying into Ireland for a romantic getaway, there is so much to experience.
In this short blog, let us introduce you to our luxury small camper vans and suggest some of the best places for you to explore throughout September and October. There are so many stunning places that we, ourselves, can hardly decide which ones are the best but we’ve picked our favourites! Hopefully, you are as thrilled about a road trip across the Emerald Isle as we are.
Let’s start with some suggestions for places to visit
Although a picnic along the beach is out of the question, there is great charm to exploring Ireland in the Autumn. As the weather starts to change, the autumn colours are breathtaking along the Irish roads. The Irish coastline is still as impressive. For a weekend getaway, exploring the best of Irish towns along the Wild Atlantic Way or the Ancient East is a great way to socialise and explore somewhere new. Whether you want to cuddle up in a warm camper or adventure outdoors, a campervan is an unforgettable experience.
Hiking Ben Bulben’s Gleniff Horseshoe
For nature-loving couples looking for the Great Outdoors, a hike through the quiet backcountry may be just the thing in Autumn! Head to County Sligo’s Ben Bulben Mountain for a blend of nature and learn about the legends – either the Gleniff Horseshoe for a gentle walk, or to Ben Bulben’s summit if you’re ready for a challenge. This magical valley is great for a romantic getaway and alive with stories and legends, but the one that springs to mind is the tragic love story of Diarmuid and Grainne, mythological lovers eternally pursed by an angry giant, who met their ends under Ben Bulben’s shadow in the real-world Cave of Diarmuid and Gráinne.
This tourism spot is a highlight in Sligo and well worth the drive over. You will find plenty of spaces to stop along the way.
Cliffs of Moher at Sunset
The Cliffs of Moher, an enduring classic that many Irish Couples have yet to really explore. Visiting these massive and beloved cliffs is always a wondrous experience, but visiting with your true love is even better! There is so much space and facilities for campervans in the area. Whether you opt to charter a boat to pass underneath the magnificent precipices, or you prefer to hike along the cliffs, setting off from the quiet Doolin village is perfect. A tourism gem that should be on your tourism bucket list.
For a unique but romantic foodie experience, try oyster shucking and tasting in the mystical Killary Fjord along the Connemara coast.. A region known for its seafood (and in particular, its shellfish), this is the perfect way to experience the magic of Connemara. Obviously the views of the Irish countryside are worth the visit, but the Connemara experience is so rewarding. And did you know that oysters are aphrodisiacs? A warm campervan is the perfect retreat after a day of exploring the rugged Irish west coast.
Explore the Dark Nights Sky
Too often today when we think of lights after dark, headlights and street lamps and storefronts come to mind. But for a decidedly more romantic experience, head to County Mayo, one of Ireland’s most rural open spaces, for a romantic getaway to experience Ireland’s first International Dark Sky Park, showcasing some of the darkest and most pristine skies in the world. On a good, dark night, you’ll see up to 4,500 twinkling stars, a few planets, the Milky Way and the occasional meteor shower all without a telescope!
