View Full Version : Irish wild sites

I used a couple of sites in Eire over the last 2.5 weeks. The first is on the sea front at Ardmore on the south coast. Fishermen use it regularly. It is a short walk into the village with a shop and pubs. There is a very pleasant circular walk along the cliffs and back via an ancient church yard and a vast length of beach to walk along.

Further north in the Burren is Bell Harbour located on the coast road 6 or 7 miles north of Ballyvaughan. You are on a stone quay set down from the road and there is a pub/local shop about 100 metres from the site. Be aware though - DO NOT park on the stone jetty or close to the slipway as they have a tendency to be submerged at high water!!

For the second time we parked on a side road in front of the bank at Rosslare Harbour (1st right after leaving the port) for an overnight before catching the morning ferry. There is a car park on the approach to the ferry, but there is a (smallish) warning sign that overnighers will be clamped.

Not quite wild but we found a 10 camper park a couple of Ks off the R734 to Fethard. Turn off the R733 Rosslare/Wexford road onto the R734 and look out for the signs, turn right, after about 5 miles. It is at a horse riding place with a large caravan used for tack with a loo you can use and a fresh water supply. It's pretty flat and has great views over the estuary.
