      People argue with the guy that moves a chair. Nobody questions the lunatic that drives straight over them.

        Or you could park between the chairs taking up 2 spaces and win the admiration of the entire internet.

    You could just point at the chairs and say “this is not your camp” and see where it goes from there.

  2. Yeah, Ok

    Even if I didn’t want to park I would pull in there for an hour or so. What a crowd of w@nkpots.

    This does raise the point of the lack of suitable Areas for campervans in Ireland. As far as I know there is only one dedicated in Ireland in Camac Valley on the Naas Road. In Europe there is one of these every few miles.

        There are caravan parks yes but not many dedicated areas for motorhomes like in Europe Rob.

          I’m not sure that I understand the distinction – do motorhomes have requirements other than that are provided in campsites? Genuine question.

          1. Benny

            No not at all campsites are fine but in Ireland generally in more pitcuresque (remote) areas. My issue is that there is little or no Areas for motorhomes in towns around Ireland. In France or Spain you can find a designated unmanned aera like carparks with access to power water etc that campers can just access with a credit card. Usually in the centre of most towns

            I can see the utility in that – my one concern is that it would be setting aside a large amount of land that would be used only for a couple of months a year which could be used for other things (by this, I’m referring to the idea of having it situated in the centre of towns, rather than the idea generally).

            Can you think of anyone other than German campervanners who might use these car parks with water and power? Well that’s why we don’t have them.

            Either way, no problem with them parking in a car park, big problem with them trying to hold spaces from shoppers.

            Well we could always provide safe, decent, non-combustible sites for Travelers *and* halting sites for tourists.

    Interestingly the second country must guilty of this cute trick (based on reserving sunloungers with towels ) after the Germans is the British.

    They actually own that.
    By which i mean, they own, the land, the country.
    Simple as, so they can do what they want.
