    Under the Tourist Traffic Acts 1939-2016, any tourism business calling itself a caravan or camping park must be registered with Fáilte Ireland.

    In order to register as a caravan & camping park, your business must comply with the current regulations.

    From early 2020, caravan & camping parks have new regulations as well as updated classification criteria. The new classification criteria are more focused on the quality of service and hospitality offered, as well as acknowledging additional facilities, rather than purely based on a rigid set of physical attributes and the extent of facilities.
    The newest change is that businesses now have the opportunity to achieve a 5-star classification rating, a rating that was not available until now.
