Information regarding the Public Campsite 

The Public Campsite has been very successful in previous years and thus is running again this year.

It is designed to cater for caravanners and campers who are not Exhibitors at the Rally. 

It is situated within easy walking distance of the public entrance to the Rally Field and has running water, portable toilets, floodlights and chemical toilet and grey water disposal facilities.

No pre booking  required.  Just turn up and check in.  We have moved to a new site with ample space for everyone.  

Only motorhomes, cars/caravans, camper vans and tents permitted on site.  Strictly no commercial vehicles e.g. transit type vans, box vans etc.
For security purposes the site will be fully fenced and will have only one entrance/exit which will be manned 24 hours.

The Campsite will open at 3.00 p.m. on Friday 4th May and will officially close at 10.00 p.m. on Monday 7th May.  


All campers must vacate site by the latest 12 noon Tuesday 8th May.

Check in times are as follows:
Friday 4th May 3.00 p.m. to 8.00 p.m.
Saturday 5th May 9.00 a.m. to 8.00 p.m.           
Sunday 6th May 9.00 a.m. to 8.00 p.m.

Please enter Shanes Castle Estate via the Main Entrance, half way between Antrim and Randalstown: follow the AA signs and our signposting. When you enter, advise the Traffic Stewards you are going to the Public Campsite and you will be directed to follow the PURPLE signs showing PUBLIC CAMPSITE.

DO NOT enter via the Entrance at the 40 MPH speed limit signs on the outskirts of Antrim: this only leads to a Car Park from where it is impossible to reach the Public Campsite.

Vehicle passes will be issued on check in: they must be displayed to ensure hassle free re-entry should you take your vehicle out of the Estate. 
If you would be interested in attending our 2019 Rally, please complete a Contact Form and hand it in to the Campsite Steward before you leave the site and we will be happy to contact you next April.
