Glamping in IrelandEnjoy luxury camping in Mongolian yurts when touring Offaly.

We have something a bit different for those looking to create a unique experience in Ireland - "glamping", or glamorous, luxury camping! After all, camping doesn't have to mean tents and sleeping bags and you'll understand what we mean when you see that this campsite includes not only electricity - but luxury bedding, towels and linens as well.

Luxury campsites, or glamping sites as they are properly called, are becoming quite popular around the world and we are happy to offer them in the middle of Ireland. Situated in the heart of the Midlands of Ireland, our glamping site has three sturdy, well insulated and beautifully furnished Mongolian-style yurts.

Located on private land beside the Grand Canal just outside Daingean, County Offaly (close to Tullamore), you are far enough away from it to enjoy peace, tranquility and privacy, yet just a five-minute walk away from the canal itself, where you can walk or cycle the towpaths, go fishing or even take a canoe out. If you're someone who likes activity, then you can hike up nearby Croghan Hill.

Tent on the Outside, Luxury Irish Hotel Comforts Inside

You will be spoiled while glamping in Ireland with beautifully furnished yurts - carpeted, furnished with solid-wood furniture handmade in Ireland by a local craftsman and a welcome pack of wine, cheese and biscuits to start your vacation off just right. You won't get these comforts in many Irish B&Bs or hotels!

Your comfort and warmth is top priority therefore all yurts have electricity, heating, contain several layers of insulation to keep you warm, should the nights get a little chilly, and have a clear skylight to allow lots of natural light to flood the interior. And if that's still not warm enough, then the beds have thick duvets and electric blankets.

Each yurt has its own wooden decking out front where you can sit and relax, eat lunch or even sunbathe (yes we know, it is Ireland after all. But the sun does actually come out sometimes in the summer!)
