- Dogs and children very welcome
Off to explore Ireland's utterly gorge north coast? Settle mountainly down at Hillfoot Caravan Site and Camping near Derry's Dungiven.
The site is run by very friendly Mervyn and team (not forgetting famous campsite collie Ben) and is in a superly scenic countryside setting at the foot of Benbradagh Mountain: 'views to die for', 'brilliant', 'smashing' and 'stunning' are just a few of the compliments already heaped on the site, setting and staff by happy Hillfoot guests.
Mervyn and co take great care of the land where the camping pitches are and ask all guests to do the same so the landscape is protected. Waste disposal points, a chemical disposal point, fresh water and bins are all conveniently located.
Small folk are very welcome at Hillfoot and there's loads of room for them to run safely around; the team just asks that children are supervised/kept within sight at all times as there's often machinery and cars around the farmhouse. Dogs are most welcome too, but again please take care and keep them on leads at all times as the site is surrounded by fields full of sheep and cows. Two dogs are allowed per tourer or motorhome.
The Hillfoot amenities include two handsomely converted loo and shower facilities and a meeting area for small groups and parties: contact Mervyn when you arrive if you want to use this and he'll be happy to sort you out.
The site does not accept breeds/crossbreeds listed in the Dangerous Dogs Act and/or any of the following: Staffordshire bull terrier, American Staffordshire terrier, Rottweiler, any Mastiff or Tosa.

Party: 2 adults
Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.

When approaching Dungiven from the east turn left onto the B64 following the signposts to Garvagh, follow the road for approximately 1.5 miles. You will come to a crossroads then turn right at the next building on your right and we are signposted from there.
When approaching Dungiven from the west, drive through Dungiven, then at the top of the town turn left onto the B64 following the signposts to Garvagh. Follow the road for approximately 1.5 miles. You will come to a crossroads then turn right at the next building on your right and we are signposted from there.
When approaching from the north, whilst driving in a southerly direction on the B64, look for a large farm on your right-hand side and we are on the left.
Belfast has two airports, Belfast International and George Best Belfast City Airport, both are approximately one hour's drive from the campsite. The City of Derry Airport is to the north-west of the site, about a 20-minute drive away.
Explore town, country and coast from Hillfoot Caravan Site and Camping – you won't be too far from Northern Ireland's two main cities Derry and Belfast either.
Going coastwards – the Antrim coast is what most people visiting these parts come to see – the Causeway Coastal Route running from Belfast to Derry is within a short drive of the site and passes through the Causeway Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty as well as many old villages and coastal towns such as Ballycastle. The holiday resort of Benone is less than half an hour's drive to the coast in the north and has miles of golden sands, part of which are dog-friendly.
Stop off at Ballycastle, home to the famous Ould Lammas Fair dating back to the seventeenth century and probably the biggest of its kind in Ireland. Go here if you're around in August to buy bags of dulse and yellowman, or take the ferry from the town at any time of year to the RSPB reserve of Rathlin Island six miles offshore.
Towns and cities are well within an hour's drive, such as Ballykelly on the road towards Derry and with the walking trails of nearby Walworth Wood; 'gateway to the glens' Ballymena and its museums and market 30 miles to the east; Antrim and its two castles; and Coleraine, within about half an hour of the site and recommended by the Hillfoot team for shopping and most of the major brand stores.
You'll also have to have a day (and night) in Derry 30 minutes away, city of old walls, the Nerve Centre arts building and many pubs and clubs, and in Belfast, N Ireland's capital and filled with plenty to see and do. Take one of the open-top bus tours for the best guided look at the city: the route runs from the city centre out to the government buildings of Stormont, along the Falls and Shankill roads and back into town via the university area.
Also recommended are Benbradagh (four miles to the south east) and Binevenagh (17 miles north), the two highest mountains in Northern Ireland; and Jessie's Cabin, at the base of Benbradagh and with stunning views: the countryside surrounding here is classified as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
And if you want to travel a little further, take the Foyle ferry about 20 minutes from Hillfoot which will take you over Lough Foyle and into Co Donegal in the Irish Republic.
