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 .

Camp'n'Cache in Northern Ireland

Post by fitzet » Fri May 10, 2013 11:08 am

We're considering visiting Gosford Forest Park, outside Markethill, in County Armagh for a night or two under canvas. The attractions for this location include a load of caches nearby, some overlap with Game of Thrones and a less than two hour drive from home.

Can anyone recommend other campsites in Northern Ireland that are located in an area of high density for caches ?

We stayed in a campsite near Enniskillen once but there aren't a lot of caches about the place.
We usually camp up the Mournes so don't know a lot about campsites, sorry.

Must be somewhere on the North Coast near Portrush or Portstewart? Loads of caches there too

Not sure about camping but Gosford park is lovely, some nice Bawnman caches around too. :D
