As we all know, Ireland is spoiled with miles and miles of beautiful scenery, sprawling landscapes and impressive natural formations in every county and country village. However, when it comes to camping, we know all too well all the problems, headaches and mishaps that come with living rough in the wilderness.
Glamping is the perfect answer for those who are resistant to roots and adventure camping. It combines nature, luxury and comfort, without the inconveniences of good old camping, with the associated backaches, humidity problems in the tent…etc.
It’s one of the best ways to enhance your camping experience by making it more fun, more relaxing and less stressful than is usually possible (especially if you left the hammer and bag of tent pegs behind). It’s also a great way to convince an anti-camper to spend a night under the stars with you.
Glamping is a combination of the words “glamour” and “camping”. A rather explicit fusion, which allows to reconcile camping and luxury.
If the word is a new invention, luxury camping is not. For several years now, some pioneers have been setting up in humble but luxurious homes in the middle of nature.
The general principles of glamping usually consist of a yurt, teepee, trailer or other form of semi-permanent tent or module that is much more spacious, comfortable and weatherproof than your usual backpacking tent.
Glamping sites often operate on the model of a B&B or campsite where a meal is provided by the host.
Ireland is no stranger to glamping, as it is home to a large number of sites of different styles throughout the country.
To find the best glamping in Ireland, you should not only look at the glamping site itself, but also consider who you are going with, for how long, and how much you want to spend.
The price of glamping is usually reasonable, about the same as a bed and breakfast. However, if you want to splurge on luxury, expect to spend a lot more…
