Get Your Glamp On

If you are fed up of going to the same old campsites, pitching up your tent, and roughing it for a week, why not try a spot of glamping instead? It offers you all the great things of a camping holiday, but with a wow factor added in as well. Whether you are opting to stay in a teepee, gypsy caravan, safari tent, bell tent, or yurt, you are sure to be blown away when you arrive at your accommodation as each offers a unique and interesting holiday experience where you can be close to nature but without a roll out mat or blow up bed in sight! There is nothing quite like waking up in the morning in one of these magical places as it feels like you have been transported to a different world. Decorative, interesting, comfortable and unusual are just a few words to describe glamping experiences, and why would you want to miss out on that? Ireland has some fantastic glamping site to enjoy, so pick your preffered dwelling, choose your location, and enjoy! 

Teepees

Teepees originate from North America, and they are very simple yet impressive structures. They are essentially made up of a set of very long poles which stack up together into a central point high above the middle of the teepee, with a canvas cover spread around the outside. The feeling you get in one of these superb places is almost indescribable, as when you look up you can see straight up to the sky giving you the feeling of being very in touch with the outside world. Some teepees are decorated in a Native American style with beautiful tribal paintings on the canvas, and this can be particularly exciting for children to experience.

Yurts

Yurts originate from Mongolia, where they have been lived in for thousands of years in a virtually unchanged design. These very unusual structures are made from a wooden lattice, wooden roof poles, and a large crown in the middle of the roof which allows you to gaze into the sky. The wooden frame is the surrounded by various layers of felt, and canvas with a decorative cover on the front. There is something extremely invigorating about ‘living in the round’ and many historic tribe cultures believe that it is a very spiritual shape for a dwelling, mirroring the shapes of the earth and creating inner harmony. When you step into a yurt or teepee, it is hard to deny that it does have a very special feeling. Almost every indigenous nomadic culture has lived in round buildings of some type, from teepees and yurt to igloos and kivas, they all maintain this spiritual sense of being close to nature.

Gypsy Caravan

The so called gypsy caravan has seen something of a revival in the last 10 years, as people have begun to utilize them for glampers to enjoy. These fantastically ornate and comfortable caravans are based on the ones used by Romany travelers in the 19th century, and they definitely have a wow factor. They were originally horse drawn carriages, and some are decked out with the most ornate wooden carvings imaginable. If you are looking for a romantic weekend away, then a stay in a gypsy caravan could be the perfect option, combining the excitement and interest of the glamping experience with the cosy warm interior of this age old caravan.

Bell Tents

Bell tents are becoming increasingly popular at glamping sites, and they offer visitors the chance to get really close to nature and experience a camping holiday but without the worry of having to purchase, transport, and set up their own tent. They are a clean, simple, and inexpensive way to get out and experience the great outdoors. The canvas tent is supported by a single pole in the middle, and inside there is a light and airy feeling which is particularly enjoyable when you wake up in the morning.

Tree Houses

You may be under the impression that tree houses are just for children to play in, but you would be wrong. Some of the most fantastic glamping experiences can be found in a luxury tree house setting. These magnificent structures come in all shapes and sizes, with some being located just above ground level and others being high up in the tree canopy. There is no better way to experience a slice of nature than by spending a week in a house build around a tree! It is always a good idea to ensure that you have adequate travel insurance if you are planning to stay in one of these incredible dwellings, because you can never be too careful with your possessions. You certainly would not want to drop your phone or camera from the balcony of your tree house, as it is likely to end up broken. You also have to keep in mind that you may need to climb a ladder, steep ramp, or cross a bridge to get into your tree house, and this has the potential for minor injuries if you are not careful.
