UK and Ireland Campsite Guide
Thinking of motorhome hire in the UK or Ireland but not sure where to camp? We work with campsites and camping organisations to ensure you have the best possible experience when you hire.
If you hire a campervan from any of our motorhome depots, we provide you with a free campsite guide to help get you on the road. However, if you prefer to have more information before you arrive, here is our handy guide to campsites for your holiday (Please note: it is advisable to plan or ring ahead and book your pitch, especially during the busy summer months):
The UK Camping & Caravanning Club
For campervan hire in the UK, there are dozens of campsites which are worthy of taking the top spot. You’ll get free, temporary membership of The Camping & Caravanning Club Privilege Scheme which offers up to 30% discount on participating sites on any Bunk Campers hire. On arrival at our depot you will receive The Privilege Pack. Find out more.
Irish Caravan & Camping Council
In Ireland we work with the Irish Caravan and Camping Council to bring you the best quality campsites and camping discounts. All guests arriving at our Dublin & Belfast depots will receive a copy of the Irish Camping Guide. You can view their full list of campsites and discounts here. They also have a free app which is great for planning your trip on the go!

Alternatives to Campsites
Safe Nights Ireland offer a safe and cheap alternative to staying at a campsites in Ireland. We offer access to the Safe Night’s Ireland network with all Ireland rentals.
The Brit Stop book features country pubs, farm shops, breweries, etc. all offering an invitation through the Brit Stops scheme to stay overnight in your motorhome or campervan in a safe environment – free of charge! These are not camp sites, so won’t have shower blocks or overnight toilet facilities, but you do get a pleasant stopover somewhere off the road, and a bit different.
We recommend you contact places prior to your arrival to ensure they have space. Changes, refurbs or closures can occur from time to time, and are not always able to be updated, so it is worth checking!
Please note, campsite alternatives won’t always offer the full range of campervan facilities you need. Don’t forget to call into a campsite every now and again to dispose of your waste responsibly, plug in for more power or just to enjoy the facilities.
