A new field

  • May 30, 2021 4:09 PM BST
    Have just heard about a new venture in Blackwater Co Wexford. Walshes field. Motorhome parking. Not much in the way of facilities yet, I think. I have sent a message asking for more information. Prices etc.
    Good to see another place opening anyway.

    I believe €10 per night water only available at present.

    Anything to get Motorhomes off the side of the road, even if there were services available in satellite towns within driving distance from these kind of places would help.

    Great to hear of new places opening and hopefully at a fair price. The more new places opening should help ease the burden of finding a spot.

    Here is some additional information.
    The time has come to open Walsh's Field Motorhome parking. We are excited to welcome you all to our beautiful seaside village here in Blackwater and to our fantastic County of Wexford \ud83d\udc9c\ud83d\udc9b, where there is so much to see and do.
    This is a new venture and we are starting off with secure overnight parking and a central point for fresh water.
    Weather permitting we are opening from the 3rd of June. You can contact us on 089 2683299 to make a booking. We look forward to welcoming you all very soon.

    Great news.

    Ok so yes confirmed at €10 per night. Just my n the outskirts of the village. Downhill into the village, uphill after the pub though. I’d guess about a 7-8 minute walk to the centre of the village. I’m awaiting word on capacity. I’ll put it on the app with eir code

    That sounds close to perfect David. Only drawback is that uphill walk from pub LOL

    You won’t break the MPI app by pressing buttons, whether on an iPhone or Android is what I meant.
