Total Camping trip to Co Clare - April 2013

Day 1- we drove from Dublin to Pure Camping via limerick. A good tip for food is J.P Clarks pub at Bunratty castle, plenty of room for you to park up the RV as well. The final few miles to Pure Camping is on relatively small roads & I would recommend you take a note of the directions off their web site.

What to say about Pure camping … this is a unique camping experience for Ireland, a fully Eco friendly Camp site with wonderful facilities. Trea & Kevin have put a ton of work into this place & it shows. They have great Glamping options with various size tents fully equipped with mats, stoves & bed linen (although Trea told me that if you bring your own bed lined then there is a discount on the price). The Yoga centre is in a fine space & gives a relaxed feel before the class even starts.

The tent camping area is in a historic ring fort & it’s great fun finding your way to a tent through hedge grows. Other eco facilities are :

  • A reed bed system to take care of waste
  • Eco toilets & showers
  • Wood fired sauna
  • Clay pizza oven

To me this camping park would be wonderful for children & I would recommend a visit for anyone looking to try a different camping experience.

Day2- We started our day by exploring the Loop head area. First stop was Carrigaholt where there is a lovely castle overlook the bay. This is also a top place to go on a dolphin spotting trip. Next we visited to spectacular cliffs outside Kilkee – really worth a visit. We stopped in Kilkee for some grub & there are lots of good options here.

 

We then drove to our next Camping Park Strand Camping in Doonbeg. This is a small family run park on Doonbeg Bay with a pretty beach nearby. The facilities are basic but spotless & a pitch for the night was only 18€ with power. That night we struggled through the wind & rain to have a bite to eat in Morrisseys Bar & restaurant. Seafood is a speciality here & believe me you will not be disappointed…. Some of the best food I have had in years.

 

Day 3- We drove along the coast road to Lahinch- the surfing capital of Clare. Lahinch is a really fun town where there is always something happening. There is lots to do here although surfing & golf are the main options. We decided to spend the night in Ocean View Park. This is a camping Park on the outskirts of the town. Facilities are good but the area for touring RV’s is a bit bland. A pitch for the night was 25€. We spent the night in town with a few friends & visited some of the local bars which were all hopping.

 

Day 4- Following the coast road which took us by the fantastic Cliff of Moher we arrived in Doolin. This small picturesque village is a Mecca for Irish music & the pubs here are great for a ceile at night. We spend the night in O Connors Camping Park situated in the middle of the village. This Park has a great feel in beautiful surroundings. The facilities are top notch with spotless bathrooms, great kitchen, relaxation room & clothes cleaning options. A night here was 20€ and well worth a trip.

 

Until next time………
