We made it!!!! - Finally!! I hear you all say :) Well we sort of have, this is only the beginning for Motorhome Parking Locations, we have a lot planned, yes it has taken us a long time, I tried my best to keep you all on the road by providing the information with no app. But the circumstances were difficult, understandably.

There has been many many hours spent, both day and night on a very limited budget but our new developers have came through with what I think is brilliant, as is, but I have also witnessed what is coming. #watchthispace

You are all aware we used to be Motorhome Parking Ireland and we had many many loyal customers and absolutely fabulous ones at that, the reviews on places coming in kept me very busy every single day, together we built an amazing app, from its beginnings with a map on Motorhomecraic.com from August 2011 and then the app in 2016, it grew way beyond my expectations. With that in mind we are now expanding, we still have our Irish roots and that will remain so, but we now intend to take on all of Europe and indeed the world :)
I hope you all stick with myself and Julie and the new Dev Team, Warren and Michaela, and you can help us immensely by populating the app with all your places throughout Europe.
We have our own GB map that we used in our GB app – remember that? But we have very few reviews on the places, so if our GB friends and visitors could help by reviewing and adding places in GB once we add those place, that would be amazing.
See you all on the road!!!
Keep 'er lit :)

So far after a shakey start, ( one of the 3 A's🤔😁) it looks and seems to function well.
So much so I can't see why it has taken so long. 🤔😁😊🤞.
I'm going into hiding now,for a few months now. 😂

The update when it is reviewed by Google will fix the location issue where it doesnt know where you are.

Will it fix my age-related issue when I don't know where I am (before I've left the house)?

FAQ;
1. Our app only has Parking places in Ireland, we will be adding our GB map soon.
2. You need your location turned on, in your device or the app has no way of knowing where you are.
3. The app is free. There will be a paid option later.
4. We used to be Motorhome Parking Ireland but we had a GB app for a brief time.
5. We are waiting on Apple approving the iOS version.
6. Be happy 😊

Can I offer some feedback?

I use this app generally before I depart as a future trip planning tool, and so therefore i am usually looking at POIs which are not near my current location (home).

When I move the map to somewhere I want to plan a trip to (lets say it's west cork) and I click into a POI for further information, read it, and then click 'back' to get back to the map, it automatically brings me back to my current location instead of the trip location I had been browsing.

This is frustrating as it means I have to keep moving the map back to west cork (or wherever) every single time I read a POI which gets a bit tedious after a while.

Go to location search, type in example skibbereen, go HOME. It stays in Cork.

When I do that, none of the other locations show up on the map.?
Only the ones in Cork, and if you look for directions it us still from home.

You're using homepage filter, not search location?

Initial release and bug testing and feature testing as we go along, so it's very early days. We've changed a few things already.


Only admin can add photos to each place at the moment. Reviewers will be able to add photos to main listing in a release soon.

Only admin can change listing options, but soon there will be an option to fill in an advice/correction for each place.
