This looks like an older version of the POI database belonging to www.motorhomecraic.com (http://www.motorhomecraic.com) If you want the updated version drop over and join us as a full member.

No problem it is my file with over 200 spots and it is bang up to date. It will be on www.motorhomewild.co.uk in near future and Free to everyone as it always has been. Only a couple of hundred places on it for Ireland unlike the massive file for the mainland UK which takes loads of work to keep on top off.
Any new spots anyone has and wants to share for Ireland let me know and I'll add them for everyone to enjoy.

It's not just me, I only join all the information together, its everyone that takes the time to send an email or post something they have found on their travels, without the kind information donations for Ireland we would not have compiled the spots we have to date.
Started now to add LPG filling stations to the POI files as more and more people are filling their own bottles or filling the onboard tanks, will take a while to get a good list of stations but its on road :dance:
Any other locations drop me a line on the site Motorhomewild (http://www.motorhomewild.co.uk)

Robbie's google interactive map - brilliant resource for any camper anywhere in Ireland. Just wondered why the new aires in the south of Ireland are not marked. Maybe because they charge a few euro and so can be considered similar to commercial campsites. Places such as Cobh, Midleton, Wicklow town. Askeaton I think is marked. Really appreciate such a valuable map like this, which can be accessed anywhere once you have the necessary device such as PC, phone or pad. Thanks a million Robbie whoever you may be. Look forward to meeting you sometime.

Has anyone stayed in the actual harbour car park at Ballintoy? The maps show a car park but I'm not sure how okay it is?

We're doing two weeks around the North of Ireland and wouldn't mind breaking up visiting relatives with some campsites and wild spots

Thanks

The car par is good best going in the evening though as there are plenty of day trippers

Hi there, is there a downloadable version of the list/map that i could print out?

No problem it is my file with over 200 spots and it is bang up to date. It will be on Motorhomewild (http://www.motorhomewild.co.uk) in near future and Free to everyone as it always has been.
