Thinking of touring Southern Ireland next year, will be our first trip with Honda CRV & Lunar Clubman to Irland. Are the roads easily drivable with this sort of unit as I have read that the roads are very narrow. Any advise be appreciated.

Can't see you will have a problem. The roads may not be as good as here so journey times will be longer. But Ireland's transport system uses these roads and doesn't have a problem and judging by the number of caravan sites in southern Ireland the caravans on them have got there without to much trouble.

Agree with Harry roads not generally as good as the uk but not as tight as cornwall. There are always signs for trucks 3.5 tonne follow these if you are deep in the country and you won't have a problem.

Stick to the N and R class roads a bit like your A and B class roads over there. If you see a road with a L sign or if there is grass growing up the middle of it try to avoide it if you can. Enjoy.

Happy Camping

The main roads are generally not too bad. The main problem is the expense...sites, food, drink, but with the to rate improving, maybe not quite so horrendous as in recent years. If you are going outside high season, there are a few ACSI and Camping Cheque sites. Mannix Point springs to mind.

There are some lovely sites in Northern Ireland and some wonderful scenery. Then you pay for everything in Sterling and if you have a dog you don't need a pet passport. The crossing from Scotland will be your cheapest and if you have Tesco Vouchers they can be used as part payment. You can still nip over the border into the Republic to visit Counties Donegal and Sligo. Any queries just ask.

The A roads in Ireland are fantastic, lots of brand new four lane carriageways and more opening all the time. Last year there was a new stretch between Tralee and Killarney, obviously on the brink of opening when I passed by.

There shouldn't be any problems with roads. The west coast Mayo, Sligo, are very accessable.As usual it depends on your interests. This is one link that may help.
