Carl and Charlotte July 2012
Carl organised a romantic break in one of our campers for Charlottes birthday surprise. She was delighted when we picked them up from the airport and they got to meet their new wee buddy for the week. They had a great time taking time out from their busy lives and tootling around Northern Ireland. They are saving for their own camper , so we hope they get their wish soon if not we hope to see them again soon! Carl sent us some amazing photos ...professional photographer in the making I think?
For anyone dreaming of owning a camper we recommend www.cosyclassics.ie ask for Joe... you will get a quality bus finished to a high spec!
John and Ead - Powercourt Waterfall May 2012
John a native of Northern Ireland and his lovely wife Ead travelled all the way from Singapore to visit friends and family recently and take a well deserved break on the road less travelled. John said he had the time of his life!...good to hear John. They queued for over an hour to get this photo right at the Powerscourt waterfall but we think it was worth it!!!!
Dorinde & Annemiek from the Netherlands
Travelling through Ireland with Finn was superb! It was love at first sight when we met Finn, he was so cute and shiny, all beautifully red and white. Driving along the most beautiful scenery in such a great van was the perfect holiday. We'll definitely be back! Our must see places to go are, Glenariff Forest Park, the Binevenagh Cliffs and Glenveagh National Park. Campsites we loved were, Benone Caravan Park Limavady and Sleepy Hollow, close to Crolly (Donegal).

Hippy Van Tour Engagement - September 2011
"Had a fantastic time in Finn the trip was a total surprise, but not as much as being proposed to when I was in it! It was the perfect trip bouncing around Ireland in the hippy van, relaxing and taking the whole experience in. We had so much fun driving an old vehicle. The freedom of having everything you need with you was great we just drove where the notion tok us. We saw the most beautiful places lakes rivers & mountians fantastic. Can't wait for our next road trip to our wedding, definately the way to escape from it all and see the country:)" - Sarah Steenson & Andrew Glover
As Featured in the Irish Times - 13th August 2011
Roisin Ingle and Family hit the road in one of our campers this Summer! In the 'Go' supplement this August..... It may be hard work at times, but as a source of magical holiday memories, it's hard to beat, writes Roisin Ingle. It's impossible not to turn heads as you tootle along the roads of Northern Ireland in a 1973 VW Campervan. Surly youths sitting on walls, pretending they hate everything, forget their disaffection long enough to point and grin. Read the full article at the Irish Times website
