When I established the forums in 2005 it was to offer a more richer web experience and greater functionality than the platform where we started this social adventure in 2003, Yahoo Groups. The forums were once a busy hive of activity and provided locals and visitors with a wealth of information just like the Geocaching Ireland Discussion Group on Facebook today.

It was a time where we didn't have the many social media platforms we have today, and it was a different time in terms of mobility and technology. There was no instant access to information, no Google Maps and a very limited base map on your GPSr. Mobile connectivity for me was a 9600bps Infrared connection from a Nokia to a laptop and in later times to a PDA using WAP.

As we moved into the social media era so did our forums users. Geocaching Ireland moved there too, and we have a thriving community on the Geocaching Ireland Discussion Group on Facebook. As a result, forum activity isn't what it used to be and I have taken the decision to disable new registrations to the forums and to make the forums read only so any information there can still be accessed.

The discussion hasn't ended, it has just moved. Join us on the Facebook Geocaching Ireland Discussion Group .

Camping in Ireland

Post by unifieddivide » Tue Sep 25, 2012 10:21 pm

Hey all - where are some great spots for some summer camping in Ireland? I am coming over the end of October for a year and want to start researching good places for any trips I take come summer. Your help (and links) would be appreciated! Big fan of beautiful scenery, tall trees and plenty of stars!

Hi Matt,

Hi Matt.
90% camping sites in Ireland are closed for autumn/winter.
Only a few (I know 2 only - in Dublin and near Rosslare are open all year long).
All the rest will be re-open next year in may or near.

All infos here:
