Frequently Asked Questions
What is glamping?
Glamping is basically camping made easy. Perfect for those who love to camp but want to avoid the time consuming setup. Perfect for those who love a hotel or AirBNB stay but want a little bit more of an outdoor experience. No setting up a tent because your accommodation is already set up. No need for a sleeping bag because your bed is already made and waiting for you. No need to worry about the weather because your glamping unit is insulated and heated. No need to worry about bringing your camping gas hob as our campers kitchen has got all you need!
Is the site child friendly?
Absolutely, we want the site to be enjoyed by the little ones and them to experience a natural outdoor playground like we used to. Children must be supervised by a parent / guardian 100% of the time.
Are there toilets and showers on site?
Yes. We have a toilet block with male & female toilets and 4 shower cubicles
Are the Glamping units heated?
Yes. One thing you will not have to worry about is heat, all units are well insulated and heated. Our yurts are particularly toasty heated by electric oil filled heaters.
Can we bring our doggie?
Yes. We allow your dog to come if you are camping or if you book our ‘Yurty And The Tramp’ yurt. For dogs staying in the ‘Yurty And The Tramp’ yurt, there is an additional charge of €30 extra per dog per stay, to cover the additional cleaning that is required and we require €100 cash deposit which will be returned at the end of your stay if your doggie causes no damage and leaves no turds. Dogs must be toilet trained, and accompanied and kept on a leash at all times. Dogs may sleep inside the yurt at night, but are not allowed onto beds or any soft furnishings. Dog owners are required to bring their own dog beds. We only allow 2 dogs in the yurt at a time.
Those camping are allowed to bring up to 2 dogs at no extra charge. Again, dogs must be kept on a leash at all times.
If your pet is causing any disturbance to other guests or displaying any aggressive behavior we reserve the right to ask you to leave.
What do I need to bring?
