Northern Ireland may not be the first choice that springs to mind when searching “ caravans for hire UK “ on Google. This may be due to media coverage of the area that always seems to mention the conflicts that took place, despite them being over for many years. In reality, Northern Ireland is probably one of the most enchanting places in the world where myths and legends abound and the people are so friendly, they’ll engage you in conversation on sight no matter where you are.
Considering that a ferry from mainland Britain takes around 2.5 hours to get there, it’s not surprising that the destination is becoming more popular. There are lots of camping and caravan holiday parks in Northern Ireland and you will find most of them on Rent My Caravan, where you can book static caravans for hire UK wide, direct with owners.
Places to see and things to do in County Antrim
Carrickfergus Castle – built by John de Courcy in 1177, this castle has been laid siege to several times in its history and is located in County Antrim. Well maintained, it really is a pleasure to see a Norman castle restored back to its original condition with medieval exhibits demonstrating the way people led their lives in this ancient monument.
Dunluce Castle – also on the County Antrim coast this castle was constructed on high cliffs in the 1500s. Unfortunately, over time, parts of it have been destroyed most notably when its kitchens sustained massive storm damage in the 1600s and simply dropped into the sea. However, this is a great day out for the kids who can go on a treasure hunt. There is even an app they can download on their smartphones.
Portstewart – is a coastal resort with a Blue Flag beach that is popular all year round with water sports enthusiasts, beachcombers and horse riders. The beach is dominated by sand dunes and part of it designated an area of interest to scientists.
Portstewart has one of the few beaches in Britain where you can still drive your car onto it and this makes the beach popular with picnickers. And of course, you can buy all the food you would expect to find in a traditional seaside town including fresh fish and chips and hot dogs.
Further along the coast at Barmouth is a nature reserve with many species of birds. Avid birdwatchers can access the hides thereby contacting the National Trust at Giant’s Causeway who holds the keys to them Tel: 028 2073 1582
