All the benefits of camping without the hardships – that’s glamping!
At Burren Glamping, a cosy vintage horse truck has been creatively and skillfully transformed into unique and bespoke farm accommodation. The Glamping Truck is comfortable and spacious, fully insulated with a wood burning stove, and has an electric shower and toilet. Two double beds fit snugly over the truck cabin and a handmade settle bed doubles up as a twin bed, while used as a couch during the day.
Burren Glamping is situated in The Burren and Cliffs of Moher Geopark, outside the village of Kilfenora – set amongst scenic and peaceful countryside. The Glamping Truck sits right at the heart of the farm, a stone’s throw from the well preserved Iron Age, Tullagh Ringfort. The lack of light pollution allows you to star gaze and the darkness at night allows for a good nights sleep.
Among the many animals over the farm gate of the small holding are Bianca, Betsy and Lucy – British Saddleback pigs that are free range, sociable and curious. Last spring saw 28 little piglets running and playing around in the paddocks. Further afield, a small beef herd grazes all year round and the ducks and the hens roam and provide guests with breakfast eggs. Ronny and Jules, the donkeys, happily watch all the farm’s activities.
From here, you will enjoy all that is beautiful about the Burren – sometimes referred to as the fertile rock and part of the Wild Atlantic Way on Ireland’s West Coast. The area has unique flora where Alpine, Arctic and Mediterranean plants grow side by side and the largest and the most accessible karst region in the world delights with stunning geological formations and archaeological remains. Situated on the edge of the Burren, amongst rich grasslands, the farm is a traditional, sustainable and eco-friendly farm that uses no fertilizers or pesticides and animal welfare is core. To ensure good grass and herbs, field are never over-stocked.
