View Full Version : Calor Gas, EHU & SNI Questions Re Ireland?

27-05-2011, 09:01

We leave for a 4 week tour of Ireland in early June and we are getting very excited about our forthcoming trip.

However, we are travelling in a temporary replacement motorhome (long story) and so we are back to using calor gas bottles again! Our own motorhome had Gaslow refillable bottles onboard but the temporary van we are travelling to Ireland in only has the 2 x 13kg swappable bottles. We need to know if we will have to purchase an adapter for these calor gas bottles? Also, is bottled calor gas readily available to purchase at garages and in retail stores etc over there like it is here?

Another question: Will our hookup cable be compatible in Ireland? I ask this as a friend of ours reckons Ireland use a different plug?



PS I have sent off my subscription to SNI (Safe Nights Ireland) so any feedback or opinions re this scheme would be most welcome. :D

Would two 13kg bottles last you the whole 4 weeks without needing to swap? Minimal heating, just cooking and fridge and HWS as required.

It probably will last us Tony - but just in case we needed to replenish, we thought it might be worth being prepared.

What about EHU - do you know if we need a different hook up plug in Ireland?

The only size of CALOR bottle that is used in UK and Ireland is the 4.5kg dumpy in butane. All the other bottles are different fittings to the UK.

EHU are the same.

To cover most of europe for EHU you need the usual Blue plug plus an adaptor to go from the blue plug to the normal domestic plug commonly used. Perhaps ireland has both too.

think even the dumpy have changed to a clip on .last one i saw was clip on. here in uk. i do still have lh srew better for filling . alan.

gas bottles are available - the clip on fittings are just slightly different - If you found yourself running short maybe you could get an Irish regulator. I talked to calor and flo gas before going last year. Calor can fill your bottles but they have to send them to the north - weeks wait befor they come back. Flo gas will fill bottles at their plant in Cork immediately- I think yet again I am too late with this information. I have an old autosleeper and It only takes the 6kg bottles - they are not abailable in Ireland at all. Daughter uses the 14kg(ish) propane for cooking at home in Roscommon they sell them at all the filling stations. but may not be calor. The Irish are always very helpful but not all the information is correct - enjoy:lol-053:

I got a notion to do a list of LPG stations for refilling Gaslow Butane systems, this is as far as I got. Any one that has 'Gas!' does gas plus anyone with GPS coords. Bear in mind that you will need the correct Gaslow adaptor!
