Disconnect from daily life and routine for as long as you need, and spend your days hiking, fishing, or simply relaxing in this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty on the charming Emerald Isle.
Arrive and check in to your private glamping pod, then spend the next few nights enjoying the peace and tranquility this little corner of Northern Ireland has to offer.

We stayed at here for two nights and didn’t want to leave. It’s the best campsite I have ever stayed at. Beautiful and modern kitchen with lots of dinning space. Large, modern showers all super clean and extremely well maintained. Toilets right beside the tent section of the campsite with hot running water. Beautiful scenery and countryside. Great play park for kids. The outdoor spaces are very well kept and looked after. Highly recommended! I’ll definitely be back!Read more
