Campervan Holiday in Ireland

The biggest part of your holiday, even before booking flights or hotels, is planning out what you are going to do for your two weeks of the year. Many of us try and plan out our daily routine and look at what events, festivals or simply listing what towns or landmarks we wish to visit. This will have a major effect on your choice of holiday activities and location.

Most of these plans at some time involve the need to book a hotel and hire a car to manage some of your sightseeing trips. This may seem like the most obvious choice but many people seem to overlook the benefits and cost savings of renting a campervan opposed to booking a hotel and renting a car.
We have put together a list of advantages of hiring a campervan over hiring a car that may be of some help to you when you are planning your campervan holiday around Ireland.

1. Transportation and Accommodation.
When planning your holiday you always try and make sure you stay in a hotel in or as close to your chosen town or city that you wish to visit. With a campervan you won’t need to search for a hotel to stay. Most modern campervans are stylish and have all the mod cons including cooking facilities, shower and bathroom facilities and a dining area that you would need to enjoy your break. So not only you will have your accommodation in order but also you can travel anywhere at any time, ruling out the need to hire a car.

2. Flexible
With your campervan you can decide where you want to go and when you want to leave. There’s no need to worry about getting kicked out of bed early from your hotel. Renting a campervan can give you the flexibility to change your holiday plans or route if need be without the worry of incurring any car rental or hotel charges.

3. Self-Catering
It can be quite expensive having to eat out every night, especially if your B&B is a few miles out of town and you have to drive. Most modern campervans are equipped with the most modern cooking facilities and have plenty of room to store your food. If you are feeling peckish on a long drive then you can easily have someone cook up your favourite snack while you drive. If you come across a beautiful and scenic parking area you can simply park up and enjoy a meal with the family surrounded by the beautiful scenery. The convenience of being able to eat and sleep in the same thing as you are driving is a huge benefit for your campervan holiday.

4. Caters For Group Holidays
Hiring a campervan allows groups to holiday together which can greatly reduce the cost of your holiday. How better to travel to your favourite concert with your mates and have your accommodation sorted at a fraction of the cost of renting a car and then sorting accommodation.
Campervans cater for all from the couple keeping costs down in a budget 2-berth campervan, right up to the family of 6 looking for a luxurious campervan to get them close to nature, mix with the locals and travel across Ireland without being tied to a set itinerary.

Planning the perfect Motorhome Holiday

Here are some helpful tips when planning the perfect motorhome holiday.

We are all feeling the pinch due to the recession; however that doesn’t mean family holidays have to be scrapped. By going on a motorhome holiday you can enjoy the freedom and relaxation you need without spending a fortune. Here we discuss the best ways to plan your motorhome holiday so that you can save money, stay safe, and enjoy your trip.

Make Sure you Book Early

By booking your motorhome holiday early you will be able to get the best deal and save on expenses such as the cost of caravan and camp sites. If you aren’t lucky enough to have your own motorhome you can easily hire one instead – but make sure you book early so you can get both the vehicle and the weeks you want for the price you can afford!

Always Be Prepared

It’s an age old saying, but preparation is truly important when planning a motorhome holiday. For instance, by organising your journey before you leave you will be able to avoid tragic, which will ultimately save you petrol. Also, instead of stopping for breaks at expensive service stations you could plan to visit small towns throughout your trip and eat at local cafes instead.

Motorhoming truly provides a sense of freedom and relaxation that no other type of holiday can provide.

Hiring a Motorhome for a Holiday? Don’t Forget your Checklist Before you Leave.

Hiring a motorhome for a holiday is easy and flexible; in fact it’s one of the least stressful types of holiday one can have. To get the most out of your motorhome holiday, however, it can help to put together a quick check-list before you leave.

Hiring a motorhome for a holiday is easy and flexible; in fact it’s one of the least stressful types of holiday one can have. No hotel bookings are required, there’s no need to map out an itinerary or route for your entire holiday before you even leave, and there’s no adhering to hotel check-in and check-out times. It’s simply you, your family or friends, your comfortable holiday home on wheels and the open road. To get the most out of your motorhome holiday, however, it can help to put together a quick check-list before you leave. Here, the leading firm for camper hire in Ireland Celtic Campervans shares with you its handy motorhome hire checklist.

Celtic Campervans have been renting out motorhomes in Ireland for use around the Emerald Isle and in the UK and Europe for over thirty years. Over that time, they have learned just about everything there is to know about motorhome holidays, gleaning from the team’s own experience as well as the feedback of countless happy campers. While all Celtic Campervans’ motorhomes are fully equipped with just about everything you could need, it pays to prepare a quick checklist before you leave so that you know you haven’t left something useful at home and that you’ll make the most out of the time in your motorhome. Before you leave, check that you’ve packed the following:

  • Sun tan lotion – yes you may even need it for motorhome rental in Ireland! Temperatures can soar in the summer months and you’ll need to protect yourself whenever the sun shines, even in spring or autumn.
  • Insect repellent – whether it’s a spray, lotion or mosquito repellent candle, don’t forget something to keep the pesky creatures at bay.
  • A camera – for recording all the stunning scenery you discover on your travels or just to capture happy moments spent in and around the campervan.
  • Outside equipment – from a simple picnic rug to a full chair and table set. Some of the most enjoyable moments are spent simply sitting around the motorhome, but these are also great for trips to the beach or picnic spots.
  • Disposable barbecue – although your Celtic Campervan is fully equipped with cooking facilities inside, packing a disposable barbecue will mean that if the weather is kind you can have a barby outside.
  • Travel guides and maps – the beauty of campervan hire in Ireland (and throughout the UK or Europe) is that you don’t need to plan your trip as much as you do if you have to arrange hotel bookings. However, some basic maps are essential to keep you from getting lost and travel guides will help point you in the direction of beauty spots and campsites.

A simple checklist like this will help you prepare for your relaxing motorhome holiday. And keep hold of it, because you’ll be using it again – most people who take a motorhome holiday get hooked!
