Motorhomecraic Snubbed

Read through it expecting to see Motorhomecraic mentioned at least once. Everything else is mentioned. Are we, as the biggest collection of Motorhomers In Ireland being snubbed by a well known Magazine? Seems very strange that they never mentioned MHC, after all they have an account on MHC. Perhaps just an error on their part?

Vineyards around Royan to Bordeaux

We are doing a family holiday soon and will be in La Palmyre kind of between Royan and Bordeaux. One of the things we would love to do would be take a time-out from the kiddie stuff and drag them to a vineyard for a half day somewhere. It would have to be reasonably kid-friendly, reasonably priced and accessible by camper van. Is there such a mythical place?
Looked at packages for Bordeaux vineyards and they all seem to be organized visits at 80 or 90 Euros each. I was more kind of hoping we could turn up at one of these places, eventually get brought around the winery, and then be shunted off to buy their stuff?

Puncture in France

Going on the premise that there is no such thing as a stupid question .........

Are punctures easy to fix on a 6 berth Fiat Ducato campervan? Worried about what the hell to do if we get a puncture in France - pretty good changing in a car but never done it in camper. Roadside assist? (or am I just a big girls blouse?)

Portaferry Campsite

Disused Portafery campsite is sad to see, pity no one can get it open again as we enjoyed last weekend in Portaferry but had to park (with permission) in one of the primary Schools.

Shower blocks etc all vandalised.

NI Tourism e mail reply

Dear Mr McCormick,

Re: Motorhomes

Thank you for your e-mail below dated 11 May 2016 to The Department for the Economy Tourism Liaison Branch regarding motorhome tourism. I have been asked to respond to your query as Policy & Insights Manager in Tourism Northern Ireland.

Although important to the local economy, and enjoyed by the domestic holiday market, the contribution of the Caravan, Motorhome & Camping (CMC) sector to tourism is low and is a relatively small component of the overall tourism industry in Northern Ireland. The sector contributes between £16.1million and £20.3million towards Gross Value Added (GVA) per annum. This represents between 1.9% and 2.5% of total estimated tourism GVA in Northern Ireland of £850 million. There are 75 registered parks, 16,000 pitches and 3,000 touring pitches. When compared to other destinations, parks offer fewer facilities such as indoor pools and recreational facilities, as well as bars and restaurants. The Republic of Ireland is on a similar scale with 93 registered parks and representing only 1% of overseas bed nights.

Tourism NI is supportive of the work of the Caravan & Camping Forum for Northern Ireland which represents the wider caravaning, camping and motorhome sector. The profile of parks on travel sites are generally very positive and a number of tourism pitches are located near key attractions. Tourism NI currently provides visitor information on the location of all Motorhome service points and Aires de Services points in Northern Ireland on its consumer website [Links are only visible for registered users] . There may be further opportunities for Aires de Service provision, where appropriate, on a local basis. This would be matter for consideration with representatives in the CMC sector in discussion with Local Councils.

Tourism NI is also supportive of the sector increasing its efforts to work together and in collaboration with Local Councils on the promotion of the existing offering, and to enable market opportunities beyond the domestic market to be identified. Tourism NI will continue to work with partners across government on strategic issues affecting the sector and also the wider tourism industry, such as ferry travel costs, the Euro/Sterling differential and VAT rates.

I trust this helps to answer some of your queries. Please see my contact details below should you wish to discuss this further.

Kind regards,
Andy Patterson
