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.

New Ross is a thriving Wexford town steeped in history and maritime tradition. It is located in rolling countryside on the mouth of the River Barrow. New Ross is home to the Dunbrody Famine Ship and is also the ancestral birthplace of John F. Kennedy, and five generations of the Kennedy clan are celebrated at the Kennedy Homestead.
John F. Kennedy Arboretum Situated 12km south of New Ross, the John F. Kennedy Arboretum celebrates the ex-president’s links with New Ross. The Arboretum, which covers 252 hectares, contains some 4,500 types of trees and shrubs from all temperate regions of the world. The summit of Slieve Coillte has a viewing point with spectacular panoramic views.
Dunbrody Famine Ship Located alongside the New Ross docks, the Dunbrody Famine Ship is a full scale replica of the original ship which was built in 1845 and used to transport emigrants to North America. Visitors to the ship are greeted by actors, in costume, who give an insight into the conditions endured on board and in Ireland during the famine period. The Irish Emigration Database provides details of over two million passengers who sailed from Ireland in the nineteenth century.
