Hi,

posting this again as I had not copied any of your hints yet before the Big Crash...

We will be rambling through Ireland this August. We will arrive in Dublin (land-bridging from Rotterdam-Hull-Holyhead) on 31st July and leave again from Dublin on 19th August.

Please re-post every information you might consider useful for me. Especially regarding Wild Spots and places you must see or must not see.

Best Regards,
Gerhard

Back from Ireland!

Hi,

as some of you may have realized due to my increased posting frequency we are back from Ireland. We had a great time and even the weather was not too bad!

Wild camping was no problem at all except at some places along the Ring of Kerry and around Croagh Patrick. While I am sure the many height barriers around the latter are mainly meant against tinkers (while still affecting our lot as well), the idea behind the numerous "No overnight parking of camper vans!" signs along the former seems to be to "direct" motorhome tourists to the camp sites.

We met many very nice people, walked over green hills, strolled through picturesque villages, crawled through bronze-age tombs, funded the local breweries and even got into an "inofficial" music session in a pub in Glengariff. Then there was the pub in Killashandra which did not only offer beer but also B&B (for the ones who had a little too much beer) and funerals (for the ones who had far too much beer?). :lol:

We will definitely come back again, especially as we have not yet seen anything further to the north.

However, when travelling back from Holyhead to Hull we made the "mistake" :wink: of a detour through North Wales (Betws-y-Coed, Dolwyddelan, Llangollen) and immediately came to the unanimous decision (remarkable when travelling with a female two-thirds majority :lol: ) that there we would spend our next vacation.

As soon as time allows I will enter the sites and wild spots I found into the database.

Best Regards,
Gerhard
