You will need a copy of your driving licence and a copy of a recently dated utility bill for confirmation of address. All non Irish hirers must provide a copy of their passport or a copy of their National Identity Card. This is in addition to the driving licence copy and proof of address document. You will also need to provide proof of motor insurance and valid NCT or DOE.
Fully comprehensive and you must check with your insurer if your insurance covers towing a trailer. If it doesn’t, you will need to add it for the hire.

No, unfortunately not because at certain times of the year we allow for discounts and we like to work around people with days and times as much as possible. It’s easy to book though, complete the booking form and we’ll be back with a cost and, if you’re happy, pay a deposit and the booking will be secured immediately.
No, unfortunately Caravan Hire does not allow pets inside the caravans.

Yes, there are utensils and cutlery provided. A full list of what is provided with each caravan is available on their web page.

This really depends on the length of your stay in the caravan, and what you plan to do in it. Without electric hook up you won’t be able to watch TV or plug in any appliances. Some appliances can run off gas but your overall stay will be easier and more comfortable if you opt for electric hook up.
Yes the caravan comes supplied with a gas cylinder.
No, awnings don’t come with the caravan.
A time for dropping back a caravan, or us collecting it, will be arranged at time of booking (normal return time is 6pm unless otherwise arranged). If the caravan is late back by more than 1 hour there will be a charge of €25 and €25 for each subsequent hour it’s late. Please keep in mind that we must have sufficient time to clean the caravan before the next booking.
The deposit will be refunded by the same payment method it was given within 3 working days after the caravan has been dropped back or collected.
If you want to keep the caravan for longer, it will depend on availability. Give us a call or text and we will let you know if it’s possible.
