Here’s some essential information for campervan travellers in Dublin
Dublin city is on the eastside of Ireland along the Irish Sea, 100 km west of Holyhead in Wales. Dublin airport is 7km north of the city, operating as the country’s main international hub with the main local airlines being Aer Lingus and Ryanair. Dublin Port connects the city with the ferry to Isle of Man, Holyhead and Liverpool, with the last two operating as road connection to continental Europe through the English channel. The motorway M50 circles the city and connects to most of the island’s main roads. North on M1 to Belfast in Northern Ireland, north-west to Donegal through M3, the M6 to Galway, and south on M7 and M8 to Limerick and Cork respectively. The Luas (tram) and the Dart (commuter train) are the main means of public transport, together with busses (however the city busses can be quite unreliable).
Most parking in Dublin is “pay and display” roadside parking, where pay through a parkometer (usually €2-4/h). Pay attention to risk areas for burglaries, such as side-roads north of the Liffey. A rule-of-thumb is always parking in visible and busy space. St.Mark’s Church on Pearse Street offers half-day prices at around €8 (pre-booking available). Q-Park Dawson Street has good offers on daily and nightly rates. In car-parks, pay extra attention to the height, as some campervans might be higher than the standard. Outside the city, you can park at Clontarf Road and hop on a train to Connolly Station or park at the Luas cark park at Red Cow stop.
- Camac Valley Caravan & Camping Park: Close to the city centre but still in natural surroundings, prices range from €26-€40 a night. - Hidden Valley Resort: Camping resort in the Wicklow Mountains, 60km south of Dublin, offer a range of on-site activities, perfect for a family adventure. - Lunders Mobile Home: Great beachside campsite, 25 km north of the city, next to the picturesque Portane Beach.
Dublin is an old Viking village that later is beloved as a great cultural hub for music (U2, the Script), literature (Oscar Wilde, James Joyce) and beer. The name originates from the Celtic word “dubh Linn”, meaning black pool, referring to the dirty pool in Dublin castle. The city is split in two by River Liffey, with the main streets being O’Connell Street in the north and Grafton Street on the southside. Temple Bar District, just south of the Liffey is known for its Irish pubs and street musicians, as well as the city’s most famous pub (and tourist trap) “The Temple Bar”. If you are looking to hire a campervan in Dublin you should explore more than just the city centre, as there are many remarkable areas within a 30 minutes drive. We recommend the cosy neighbourhood Rathmines, the fishing village Howth, the coastal areas Killiney, Bray and Malahide as well as the Wicklow Mountains.
Dublin’s weather is cold, humid and wet due to its location in the Atlantic. Weather conditions come and go rapidly, and it is not uncommon for a sunny day to have several spills of rain. A local tip is to always carry a raincoat in your backpack at all times, as umbrellas rarely last in the high winds. In winter, temperatures are not extreme (usually 2-10°C), but high humidity and winds create a strong sensation of cold. During summer, days can be as long as 17h, however rarely go above 15-20°C. The warmest months are June and July, while the wettest period is between October and December. The rough weather does, however, create great conditions for watersport with ideal kite/windsurfing spots in Bull island and Poolbeg, minutes outside Dublin city centre. Dublin's biggest annual event is St. Patrick’s day, 17th March. The official Irish bank holiday brings tourists from near and far, to enjoy Guinness and great craic in the streets of Dublin. St.Patricks weekend together with the summer months (June-August), are the busiest and most expensive periods to travel to Dublin. April and May might be the best months visit as the green city are flourishing, the weather more dry and warm, while prices are relatively low.
