Great tips and advice for " First Timers "

Hi Kevin,

Just writing to say how much Ann and myself enjoyed our first motor home experience. The motor home itself was in great shape with all the comforts needed and driving was not too much of a challenge with all road users showing mutual courtesy. The weather played along and the countryside on the drive to Achill was absolutely stunning. I would recommend the Keel beach site as a great starting point for a first timer to get used to driving , setting up etc. .

Many thanks to you and Helen for your tips and advice and we look forward to our next trip with Ireland West Motorhomes.


Best regards

Fantastic Motorhome Holiday

This review was recently posted on our TripAdvisor page by Brian and Louise from Cork . They hired a luxury 6 berth from us for nearly 2 weeks in late summer :

My wife and I plus our two children (six and four) have just come back from a fantastic motorhome holiday courtesy of Kevin and Helen at Ireland West Motorhomes. I cannot overstate how impressed we were with the level of service. This was our first time renting a motorhome so Kevin's willingness to make himself available for (lengthy!) phone calls in the run-up to the holiday was a big plus for us.

When we arrived in Castlebar to collect the motorhome, we found it ready and waiting for us, freshly cleaned top-to-bottom and gleaming in the Mayo sunshine!

Kevin & Helen greeted us like old friends. These are people who love what they do and it shows.

Kevin spent over an hour patiently taking us through the workings of the motorhome. As with the pre-holiday phone calls, no question was too silly. Suitable qualified, we pulled out of Kevin's driveway and set off on what was to be a truly memorable family holiday.

Prior to our departure, Kevin used a phrase that anyone in a customer-facing role should use - "my mobile is always on". Even though I had just met the man, I knew he meant it and, if we did have reason to phone him, there would be no question of it being an inconvenience.

Lastly - and for me this really sums up the experience my family and I had with Kevin, Helen and Ireland West Motorhomes - When we returned the motorhome and were packing up our own car, we could not find two important pieces of our bike rack. Kevin & Helen immediately donated their own bike rack and we were told that a family member who travels frequently between Cork and Mayo would bring our own bike rack to Cork for us. Ultimately, we did not need to take up this very kind offer as Kevin discovered our missing bike rack pieces 'safely' tucked away in the motorhome.

Unsurprisingly, I would wholeheartedly recommend Ireland West Motorhomes.

Perfect 2 berth camper

Both Kevin and Helen are so friendly and professional. They have a personal touch that was welcoming and easy, and they are used to dealing with first-time campers such as ourselves. Kevin explained how everything worked and assured us to ring him with any questions at all; no question was too big or small. 
It was all much easier than we had imagined. We got used to the Ducato in no time, and found it to be the perfect size for the two of us. Very comfortable, clean, had everything we needed and was easy to drive, even on tight roads or in towns. We LOVED it! 
I cannot recommend Ireland West Motorhomes higher. We're saving for our own camper now, but might have to pop back for a little trip in the meantime.

Wonderful Holiday in Ireland

We have had a wonderful holiday in Ireland! Ireland is a beautiful country and thanks to Kevin and Helen we were able to explore the country in a very nice way.  They give you a great service and do everything to make you having a great holiday and experience with the campervan. It was the first time for us in a campervan, so we did not know exactly what to expect from it, but the campervan we hired was easy to drive and all the basics were inside. It felt like ‘our little house’ after two days. Next time we visit Ireland (and we will for sure), we will definitely hire a campervan again at Ireland West Motorhomes, no doubt about it!

A little nervous

We had a great time with the motor home from Ireland West Motorhomes. I had never driven one before and was a bit nervous about it, but Kevin gave a very thorough but simple explanation of all aspects of its operation and useful tips on driving it. The kids really enjoyed staying in it too.


thanks again,

Steve & Nuala Brennan. Ireland .
