Life in the van
Hiring a campervan and hitting the open road is one of life's great pleasures! It’s a chance to get out into the countryside and really commune with nature. It’s something that’s just as much fun for beginners as it is for those who’ve been at it for years.
We can’t tell you everything about campervan life; everyone’s going to have a different experience. But we can help you get more from your holiday. We have put together information on what comes in your campervan, what you need to bring, driving times and distances between all the major towns and cities in Ireland, what to expect from campervan life, some recipes for the campervan etc.
You can also check out what our past Detour Campervan Customers had to say about their trip.
If it’s your first time, the more you know, the more you’re likely to enjoy it and go again and again. It can become quite addictive, and it makes for a much cheaper holiday, far closer to nature. If you can get your family hooked, then taking off in school holidays offers plenty of chance for adventure for all of you.
We will constantly be adding to this section, so make sure to check back every now and again. If you have your own campervan advice that you think would be useful to others, please pop it on an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will gladly add it in here.
