With a location set right in the heart of Co. Kerry, Glenross Caravan, Camping & Motorhome Park is situated on the spectacular Ring of Kerry and the Kerry Way footpath.

12 May - 16 May: Blarney Camping Park (4 nights)
IR9480 Blarney campsite

There is a heart-of-the-country feel about this ‘on the farm’ site, yet the city of Cork is only an 8 km. drive. What makes this friendly, family-run park so appealing is the welcome you receive on arrival and the friendliness throughout your stay from owner Con. Its secluded location and neat, spacious pitches add to its appeal. The terrain on the three-acre park is elevated and gently sloping, commanding views towards the world-famous Blarney Castle and the surrounding mountainous countryside.

There are gravel roads, well-tended shrubs and a screen of mature trees. Tidy hedging marks the park’s perimeter. The Faerie Garden and playing fields are popular with young campers.

In the Blarney area, apart from Blarney Castle, house and gardens, there are shops, restaurants, pubs with traditional music and an abundance of outdoor pursuits such as walking, riding and fishing, and easy access to sightseeing in Cork. Ireland’s second city is worth a visit, highlights for many being a trip to the pretty harbour of Cobh, and for others a tour of Jameson’s Distillery. A little further away is the famous ‘gastrohub’ and boat centre of Kinsale.

Please note that although it is possible to walk into Blarney, there is no pavement. A short taxi ride is recommended and this can be arranged by the campsite.

22 May - 28 May: River Valley Holiday Park (6 nights)
River Valley Holiday Park

In the small country village of Redcross, in the heart of County Wicklow, this is a first rate, family run park. It is within easy reach of beauty spots such as the Vale of Avoca (Ballykissangel), Glendalough and Powerscourt, plus Brittas Bay, a 3.5 mile stretch of beautiful white sand dunes and clean beaches.
