Anyone here been on a family caravan park holiday in Northern Ireland?

MicroFogger wants to go so he can complete the United Kingdom. I've been to Belfast once, but only to get drunk. Looking at north coast around Ballycastle, but our usual failsafe caravan park operators (Parkdean, etc) don't appear to have any sites in NI.

Can’t help on caravan parks, but the North Antrim coast is gorgeous, especially around Magilligan Strand.

I would have thought that dragging a shed behind a car would be pretty much the same wherever you went.

My uncle had a static caravan on the beach at Bangor, no idea if the park is still there.

Helping!

Cheers Cosh. Although both of those seem to private ownership rather than geared to weekly rental.

Have found a place called Hagan's which also runs parks in Scotland and Cumbria.

Also found a posh lodge.

MrsF not keen on going Norn though. I think she thinks it's full of terrorists.

It's a good few years since I've been there. I used to be a regular during the troubles...(Peace News collective member)...

We did the northern Ireland ocean road trip before we left the uk for Australia. Was spring and most of the stuff was outdoors. Flew into Belfast and promptly left in a hire car. Giants causeway a must, lots of cool ruins on the way to Derry.

I was surprised by how much I liked Belfast. It’s quite a handsome, even quite grand, city in places. I’m sure there are still some tensions between the communities there, but they weren’t apparent anywhere you were likely to go as a tourist (other than on the sectarian murals tour of course) and I’m sure the same is true of the countryside. I felt perfectly safe there.

It definitely isn't. There are few places where running around waving the wrong flag would still be ill advised, but they don't really overlap with the tourist areas.
