Go Camping!

Camping is a great way to disconnect ourselves from our busy lives, get close to nature and rejuvenate ourselves. Whether you are holidaying on your own, or with family and children, choosing a good campsite is important.
 
There are many Camping options in Ireland. While the options are many, and opinions may vary, here’s a list of some of the best camping sites in Ireland that I have personally loved and can’t wait to go back again!

The Apple Camping And Caravan Park, Cahir, Tipperary

Apple Camping And Caravan Park Website: http://www.theapplefarm.com
 
The Apple Camping And Caravan Park is situated at County Tipperary, in Southern Ireland and is a 5 minute drive from the town of Cahir. It is a popular camping option in Ireland, belonging in a working farm surrounded by pretty orchards that grows apples and other berries such as strawberries, raspberries, plums and cherries.
 
As soon as you arrive at the campsite, you are treated with a bottle of fresh apple juice and very warm & friendly hosts. The campite can hold up to 60 people per night and is very spacious. Since it is very close to the city, accessibility is a bonus and the campsite is more peaceful in the weekdays away from the bustling noises of vehicles. There is also a campers’ kitchen, that is a converted apple store for campers who wish to use it. Overall, it’s a great place for fun family camping, all at a reasonable price.
 
What truly makes the campsite stand out are the facilities that it provides. Be it necessity, convenience or entertainment, the campsite provides it all. ( Check the facilities section below for the complete list. )

Fancy a camping spot away from all the hustle and bustle of the cities? You might have just arrived at your choice. Pure Camping is an eco camping retreat in the village of Querrin, on the south side of Loop Head peninsula.
 
Mornings here can be expected to begin with yoga followed by freshly baked wood-fired pizza, overlooking the beautiful Shannon Estuary. Pure Camping holds many yoga sessions and meditation classes on a daily basis that you could partake in for rejuvenating yourself.
 
Eco friendliness and sustainable living can be observed and imbibed at every little thing at this place, from rainwater harvesting and solar heating to making pizzas in clay ovens. You can totally trust this place to feel and live in harmony with nature, to bring in some peace from the busy lives.

Glengarriff Caravan & Camping Park, Co Cork


 
Glengarriff Caravan & Camping Park Website: https://glengarriff.ie
 
The Camping Park is situated 2kms away from the scenic Glengarriff village, and is the perfect wild camping spot for family camping to explore the Beara and Mizen peninsulas. The park is just adjacent to the Bantra Bay, with the Caha mountains stand tall forming a perfect backdrop.
 
The beauty of the place is slightly underappreciated, because tourists tend to drift to the Ring of Kerry that is very close to the camping park. But in my personal opinion, the Glengarriff Caravan & Camping Park is a better option because of the comfort, relaxing and friendly atmosphere it provides.
 
The camping space is generous and there is a also a riverside park that you could just sit by and bask in the scenic views ( sunsets are the best ). The proximity to the Glengarriff Village is very useful for accessibility.
 
One of the most enticing aspects of the park is music. Visiting musicians are always welcome, and the bar & lounge at the park is famous for its live music shows. So if camping with picturesque views and music is your thing, this is where you should be heading.
 
Some of the activities near the campsite include hiking the mountain through the forest trails, boating, kayaking, swimming, sailing, angling and also golf courses nearby. Garnish Island that is famous for its gardens, is another tourist attraction in the vicinity for visitors to explore, by taking boats from nearby the park to the island.

Facilities

  • Free High Speed Internet (WiFi)
  • Laundry room
  • Toilets & showers
  • Spacious wheelchair accessible showering facilities
  • Children’s play area
  • Bar and lounge with regular live traditional music shows
