Camping Tips:

Free or Wild Camping: Free or Wild Camping is possible in some areas and entirely at ones own risk. For your comfort and safety we recommend that you stay at registered campsites.

If you are going to free camp there are some basic rules and etiquette to follow.

If there is a ‘no camping’ sign please do not camp.

Always try and seek permission from a landowner.

If you are asked to move on please do so gracefully and with a smile.

Do not litter and it may be an idea to tidy and area if there is any left by others.

Leave no trace.

Camp respectfully of others (no loud music, parties and keep an area clean).

Never under any circumstances empty a chemical toilet unless it is at a proper waste disposal unit on a campsite.

If an area does not feel safe it probably is not.

Some business’s may upon asking alow a nights stopover subject to buying food or drinks (always ask business owners first).

Remember that others may follow your route and may want to camp also. Please leave a positive memory so that other campers will be welcomed.

 

Tips:

We want you to have an amazing experience in Kerry. There is something special about cruising open road and deciding where to stay that evening. If you are cruising please be mindful that other road users may not be in ‘holiday’ mode and may be busy trying to pick up children, get to work or run chores or errands. If it is safe to do so, pull in and let traffic pass. You will most probably receive flashing hazard lights from the passing cars, a very Irish thank you from appreciative motorists. You might also discover something you were not expecting……a road to a secluded beach, a nice picnic bench for lunch or an amazing photo opportunity!

Cyclists and Pedestrians:

Outside of larger urban areas please be vigilant for cyclists and pedestrians as roads can be narrow with bends. Remember its your holiday so hopefully no need to rush!
