I'm planning a road trip around Ireland later this year. My route plan is completely joined up and booked apart from one night where I can't get somewhere to stay. Is there anything to stop me (laws or local customs) stopping me from parking up and either pitching a tent somewhere quiet at the side of the road, or sleeping the back of my car? It's an estate with plenty of space for a sleeping bag with the seats down, not curled up in the passenger seat!
In England and Wales pitching a tent outside of a specified campsite is frowned upon but sleeping in a car you can usually get away with if you're away from main roads/angry farmers - is Ireland any different?
