The Perfect Base to Tour Northern Ireland

Caravanning and camping sites, close to the Larne and Belfast ferry terminals, are the perfect and practical options for those overnight stops before your onward journey. For visitors travelling to Northern Ireland from the Republic of Ireland via Newry, the caravan parks around Newcastle, County Down and the Ards Peninsula are always popular options.

Many enjoy perfect views of the Mourne Mountains and aren't far from the many Blue Flag beaches and marinas in the nearby area - great for the fun family day out. County Down also boasts numerous stately homes, gardens and historic monuments and sites. Our St. Patrick's Trail is a must in any itinerary. Connecting 15 related sites, it allows you to follow in his footsteps!

Travelling from the west, there are many attractive parks in the Fermanagh Lakelands area, why not use this as a base to tour Northern Ireland's scenic countyside; make sure Marble Arch Caves European Geopark is on your 'to-do' list. County Tyrone is another popular option, you will soon realise why the beautiful Sperrin Mountains are an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. If you are entering Northern Ireland from Donegal, there are a number of caravan and camping parks along the famous Causeway Coastal Route (CCR), a scenic route rated as one of the Top Five Road Trips, and leading from Belfast, through Carrickfergus, up to the magnificent Giant's Causeway and beyond to Londonderry (also known as Derry).

Use your chosen site as a base to get out into Northern Ireland's Great Outdoors. Canoe along the Gortin River, climb the Mournes, stroll the numerous beaches, or hire a bike and enjoy some breathtaking scenery. Just go wild for Northern Ireland's Great Outdoors!
