The 5 best Caravan and Camping parks in Limerick

Limerick city with its charming King John’s Castle, dozens of mountain biking trails, the River Shannon as a water sports mekka and – so the legend says – the home of Irish coffee: there’s many reasons why you should visit County Limerick at least once.

And with staycations more popular than ever, this year might be the perfect time to do so. Obviously, with half of Ireland vacationing at their doorstep, finding a free hotel bed has become quite a pain – which might be the reason why camping is experiencing a massive revival this summer. 

So, forget about the hotel search, get your tent or rent a campervan (or buy one if you want to make it a regular thing) and hit the road. If you are unsure where to start your adventure, have a look at our list of the best Caravan and Camping parks in Limerick below.

This campsite is aimed at groups looking for an adventure break. Nestled in two acres of woodland grounds, Castleconnell Campsite is a stone’s throw from the heart of town and a ten-minute walk from the River Shannon, making it a great base to explore the area.

It has numerous activities on offer, including kayaking, swimming, hiking and sailing, all to be booked directly on site. There’s also a BBQ, a pizza oven and a seated campfire area. History buffs will be happy to hear that Limerick City and King John’s Castle are just a 20-minute-drive. 

Please note that this place only accepts group bookings and all arrivals are requested to show proof of insurance for the activities.

4. Galtee Art Truck (Kilbehenny) – a camping site in the mountains that comes with its own van

While this place isn’t technically a camping site, it’s a great opportunity for first timers to experience camping without actually having to bring their own tent or van – this Airbnb is a campervan!

Parked in the Galtee Mountains, the motorhome for up to four people comes with a fully stocked kitchen, a bedroom with a living area, a balcony with mountain views and an outside fire area with BBQ, a hot tub and complimentary breakfast. 

This being an Airbnb, you obviously can’t move your campervan. However, we do love the idea of glamping without any hassle and – considering the prime-location – we absolutely wouldn’t mind being “stuck” here for a bit. So, we just had to include this place in our list of the best Caravan and Camping sites in Limerick.

Address: Kilbehenny, Co. Limerick, Ireland

Prices: €80

If you are into mountain biking, Ballyhoura CamperVan Park in the centre of Kilfinane has you covered – some of Ireland’s most popular biking trails are just minutes away. As the name suggests, this place is primarily one of the best campsites in Limerick for vans, but tents can be pitched on request. 

Located in the heart of the Ballyhoura mountains, overlooking Co. Limerick and the Golden Vale, CamperVan Park has space for more than 40 vans – and if you want to toast with your fellow campers, heading to the Irish bar onsite (!) is always a good idea. 

While most guests bring their own bikes, you can also rent them at the camping place. Other activities in the area that can be booked at the reception include canoeing, kayaking, rock climbing and horse riding.

Nestled in 774-acre Curraghchase Forest Park, with walkways and hiking trails, a lake, and endless wildlife just outside your tent (or caravan), this place is a nature lover’s paradise. Adare is just nine kilometres away and the nearest beach is about a half-an-hour drive.

Warren, who runs the park, has been a passionate camper since his teenage years, so it was only a matter of time until he opened his own place – and it went straight on the top of our list of the best Caravan and Camping parks in Limerick.
