A: Most kids love the adventure of sleeping in our quirky accommodation, sitting around the campfire, hearing stories & toasting marshmallows.  There’s loads of safe green space to explore, (including Cullenagh Woods, a short walk from site), as well as a hand-built wooden playhouse. We usually offer a selection of toys, games & a sandpit, but we have had to remove these in line with Covid-19 recommendations for the 2020 season. 

Q: What is there to do nearby?

A: Laois & the surrounding area offers loads of fabulous places to visit. And many, such as The Rock of Dunamase and Emo Court, are free to enter.  See our Activities page for some suggestions, or visit www.laoistourism.ie for more options.

A: Yes. We recycle the vast majority of waste on the glampsite. Please use the recycling bins provided & help us protect our planet for future glampers.
