Day 1: Visit Dublin, the capital city
After picking up your van at the Dublin agency, stroll around the streets to let the atmosphere of the city soak in. Dublin is the cultural and historical center of Ireland, and a mandatory stopover during your road-trip in Ireland. Dive into the world of famous writers such as Oscar Wilde, Samuel Beckett or Bram Stocker at the Dublin Writers Museum. Here are some other Dublin must-sees: the Castle, City Hall, Trinity College, St Werbugh church… You can also stroll around the numerous parks of the city.
How could we talk about Dublin without mentioning Guinness, right? Don’t miss the Guinness Storehouse! You will know everything about the stout, so go straight ahead and drink one in the Temple bar neighbourhood, where you will find many pubs as well as a great atmosphere.
If you are in Dublin around March 17th, go celebrate Saint Patrick’s Day in a pub! It is a major event in Ireland, so don’t miss out!
After a day filled with visits and new discoveries, it is time to head back to your campervan for the night! Check our Blacksheep Van app and its “Where to sleep tonight?” section. You will find the spots around you to park your van for the night.
Day 2: Newgrange archeological site and Burren Cavan
This morning, head to Newgrange to visit one of the biggest and oldest archeological sites in Ireland. This site dates back 5000 years and is even older than Stonehedge in England! Do not miss this visit that will take you thousands of years before our era.
After this journey through the ages, hit the road again to get to Cavan Burren Park. From there, you can start one of the 5 hikes to discover the park. The hikes are accessible to anyone, as they last from 1km to 7km.
The sun is setting already, and it is time to find a spot to park the campervan for the night. Cook yourself something yummy and enjoy the comfort of your van for a good night sleep.
