Celtic Campervans recently featured in a Sunday Business Post article about motorhome holidays in Ireland.
Vanessa O’Loughlin tried a campervan holiday for the first time and was impressed by her Celtic Campervan.
Despite a full demo and some gems of advice from Celtic Campervans boss Stephen Bradshaw, we nervously steered our juggernaut off the slip road and on to the motorway.
But after a few minutes comfortably cruising down the M50,we felt like kings of the road with several metres of our new home stretching out behind us.
Before we left, Stephen had told us that in his many years of renting out motorhomes, he’s noticed that first-time clients tend to split along gender lines: men can’t wait to get behind the wheel, while women immediately want to eye up the home comforts.
We certainly fit the stereotype; my partner enjoyed being in command of our 2.3L turbo diesel, six-gear Lagan 220, while I was impressed by the ingenious use of the Lilliputian living space.
Our house on wheels really was more of a home than I expected. Hot water and heating are available at the flick of a switch, and when we parked in Roundwood, Co Wicklow that evening, we discovered that the double berth above the driver’s cabin included a headrest, a reading light and plenty of bedside pockets.
