Your tent is ready, securely attached to your backpack and you are ready to camp all over Ireland? You’re all set! All you have to do is travel around Ireland and spend each night of your stay in one of the countless campsites on the island!

On the comfort side, it is important to know that Ireland is a humid region whatever the season. This means that you need to be well organised and equipped with the right equipment:

  • a waterproof tent with a reinforced floor
  • a camping mattress to avoid an uncomfortable diaper
  • a good duvet capable of keeping you warm in temperatures below 5°C
  • warm clothing
  • a flashlight
  • a mosquito net and mosquito repellent adapted to counter the midges .

For any reservation, do not hesitate to consult our directory of good addresses in Ireland as well as the national Irish website dedicated to Irish campsites:

WARNING: We do not recommend that you pitch your tent anywhere. Wild camping is subject to repression in Ireland.
