Arrival in Dublin and collection of the camper

Your journey begins with the exploration of Dublin, the capital of Ireland, which is inhabited by around 530,000 people. The Greater Dublin Area, with a population of around 1.8 million, is considered to be the largest metropolitan area in the country. Dublin’s location is unparalleled as it is overlooking the Irish Sea. However, the charm of the city is primarily created by the warmth of the population, owing to which Dublin becomes an unusual tourist attraction. Dublin combines one thousand years of Celtic history, metropolitan flair, quaint pubs, and green park oases.
