Ireland is a country that offers something for everyone – from stunning natural landscapes to rich cultural heritage and vibrant cities. One of the best ways to experience all that Ireland has to offer is by taking a road trip in a campervan. With the freedom to explore at your own pace and the ability to camp in some of the country’s most beautiful locations, a campervan trip is the perfect way to see Ireland’s iconic sights. But with so many places to visit, it can be overwhelming to plan an itinerary. In this quick guide, we’ll take a look at some of the must-see destinations for an Irish campervan itinerary and provide tips for customising your trip to suit your interests and preferences. Let’s get started.
Some sample highlights for a Campervan Itinerary in Ireland
Day 1: Start Your Journey with collecting a Campervan (we are based in Roscommon)
Wherever you hire a campervan from, it’s best to get familiar with the vehicle and get equipped for the journey. Get all your essentials and determine the start of your route. Explore local attractions. And make the most of your holiday experience.
Day 2: Head North Along The Wild Atlantic Way
The beauty of the Wild Atlantic Way route is that you can dedicate as much time as you want to it. But if you have a short timeframe, you can easily pick and choose the highlights you want to see along the way.
Day 3: Drive The Slea Head Loop
The Slea Head Loop is a must-do when visiting County Clare. It’s a beautiful coastal drive with plenty of historic sights to visit, including stone beehive huts and the Gallarus Oratory.
Day 4: Enjoy The Wild Atlantic Way And A Northern Ireland Beach
Despite being a popular destination with the Game of Thrones filming, you don’t need to go to the Giant’s Causeway in order to enjoy a lovely drive along the cliffs. You can also take the Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge and walk down the Dark Hedges.
Day 5: Head to the Big City on the East – Dublin
Finishing a short trip by visiting the best of Dublin. A day spent exploring the sights of Dublin is a must for any tourist. From Temple Bar to the Guinness Storehouse and Dublin Castle, you’ll get an excellent taste of Irish city life before moving back into the countryside.
