Up in the North-West of Ireland in the middle of the Gaeltacht in Gweedore, lies a boutique glamping site along the Wild Atlantic Way. Hand built by owner Jimmy, each accommodation takes on a unique personality and includes 1 x Scandinavian pod, 1 x Norwegian hut, 1 x Yurt and 1 x Gypsy cabin – each accommodating 2 people. These can be booked separately or altogether, depending on availability. There is ample parking for cars and bikes, and inside each pod is a kettle, sink and fridge – basic amenities include tea/coffee, bowls and cups. There is a shared picnic space where you can sit outside for breakfast, lunch and dinner. A separate beach hut inspired toilet and shower unit is nearby which is shared between the 3 pods and 1 yurt. Listen to the Cuckoo, Curlew and Corncrake – watch the many birds along the coastline and relax away from the mad world of the big cities. Lie back with the friendly locals, watch them cut turf for their fines, fish in their small boats and join in if you dare.
Jimmy is a great host who goes out of his way to be helpful and welcoming. He has hand built these pods and the energy and effort he has put into these amazing little cabins is quite remarkable.
I stayed in the Gypsie Cabin on my visit which was very quiet clean and comfortable. The location is a great place for a stop along the way for a nights rest. Only a couple minutes drive to the coast which had one of the best sunsets I’ve seen all trip.
