While we were in Ireland, we were moving from place to place. It was a new city or town every day so accommodations were pretty important after all the traveling we did every day. On two non-consecutive nights, we actually opted to do glamping. And it was the best first experiences ever with glamping. I absolutely loved the laid-back vibe of the accommodations while still having the comfort of a bed and washroom facilities.
Our first glamping experience was just outside of the Cliffs of Moher in a small town called Doolin. On our way to the glamping site (just five-seven minutes away), we actually got a flat tire and after much trouble, made it to the site. Our hosts – booked via AirBnb – were absolutely amazing and made all the calls they could to help us with our car troubles. They were absolutely friendly and accommodating – truly an Irish quality that I would encounter time and time again during this trip.
They also have a little caravan and Mongolian yurt that you can book. I would definitely come back to stay in that yurt. Check out their AirBnb listing here.
Our second glamping experience was in Killarney, our second to last night in Ireland. By this point, we were pretty exhausted from our trip – only heightened by that day’s adventure. We had just hiked the Gap of Dunloe and it was nice being able to just kick back and have an early night. I absolutely loved how the tents were in that wooden structure that further protected it from the elements and kept it even cleaner. Check out the website for booking here.
