Camping made easy with these Quick Wins.

Camping has come a long way since we were in the scouts, and there are efficient ways (and products) to make it a more efficient, comfortable and hassle-free experience.

Here are some quick wins.


Inflatables Items for Camping Comfort & Easy Packing

Pack an Air Pump

Inflatable furniture is a clever camping solution. Make big things happen with less packing. Pack an air pump. It will go a long way to support multiple items like pool toys, inflatable swim vests for the kids, beds, and more.

Here are some practical inflatables that will be great both at home and on holiday.


Sleep Better When Camping

It’s no holiday if you’re going to emerge exhausted from your time away. Here’s an investment that will deliver more than a comfortable night at camp.

Investing in an Airbed is an absolute no brainer for any household in Ireland! Think about it.

You will have an easy to pack, comfy bed for any camping ground. But you’ll also have a great backup option if settling into any staycation property in need of more bed space. Stick your Pavillo Sleeping Bag on top for added comfort, or unzip your sleeping bag to create a duvet.

In addition, it's the perfect investment for keeping in the storeroom at home for visiting guests and the kids’ sleepover parties.


Inflatable Dual-purpose Loungers

A comfy inflatable relaxer could turn any outdoor setting into an irresistible relaxation spot or work well poolside.

It is easy to set up, comfortable and sturdy. It boasts a sturdy coil beam construction for added durability that can take a maximum weight limit of 330 pounds.

Have it as an add-on to the camper van or mobile home outdoor furniture. The highly supportive back and side rests will also let you double up the lounger as a backup sleeping option for children.

You can even use it in playrooms or bedrooms. Perfect for gamers!


    Aim for Dual Purpose and Combo Carriers

    Find dual-purpose or combination products when packing smart for your next staycation, outdoor expedition or camping trip.


    Partying while you are Camping!

    Consider the Pavillo Cooler Bag. It gives you a foldable bag and an adjustable strap with a padded handle.

    • The frame makes it a secure carrier for fragile items and liquids. It keeps everything cool for when you are ready to eat,
    • Also try the Bluetooth 3W speaker with Light. Connect it to your mobile device’s music player via Bluetooth or use with a 3.5mm jack plug audio cable (not included).
    • Its rechargable power bank provides 7 hours of light on a full charge.
    • What’s more, the whole device has a weather-resistant housing with a built-in hanging hook.


    Safety Must-Haves

    Fire Safety Camping Accessories

    Being out on your own, far away from facilities when camping or in a campervan, means taking extra precautions for safety. Fire safety is paramount as you may not have a ready hose or water on tap.

    Pack a combo Fire Safety kit with Fire Extinguisher and Fire Blanket to ensure you are covered for more than one type of fire, especially if you’re starting a campfire or barbeque on the staycation.

    It is suitable for use on class A, B and C fires and has been tested for extinguishing fat fires on kitchen stoves, camping trips and BBQs.  It doesn’t take much training to use.


    Lighting up the Camp

    Lighting Up Efficiently at Camp

    Head torches may be the most efficient way to keep your path lit when hiking in the wilderness, heading out on the water or moving around your camp in the dark. Ideal for using while camping, reading, walking, fishing and all outdoor activities.

    They are also a lifesaver when stuck in a roadside emergency or a breakdown that needs task lighting on the spot.

    It is a good investment for everyday jobs at home too. Get a head torch with an adjustable head strap and built-in safety reflectors to be suitable for all professional and DIY jobs.

    Invest in a powerful and lightweight torch like a Rechargeable Head Torch.  These led torches will provide light all night.

    • Energy-wise, they have a low power LED consumption, giving you extra-long battery life, lasting up to 10 times longer than traditional torches.
    • Head torches leave your hands free.


    A Portable Fire and Easy BBQ Home and Away


    Make the perfect atmospheric marshmallow toasting moment happen with a fire pit. The vintage-styled RedFire Fire Pit Blazer is an excellent example of a handy, tidy and portable campfire solution.

    Using one could bring added safety to your camping trip even if there is turbulent weather.

    It will also double up as an easy investment for outdoor parties at the homestead.

    The combo theme continues when it comes to getting the right fire pit. You can choose to use this fireplace with the grill, which means it doubles up as a BBQ and cooking or grilling spot. The grill has a diameter of 61 cm, which delivers enough space to prepare a range of foods in one go.
