Here is some chic glamorous camping options in Ireland, otherwise known as “glamping”.
Have you ever considered ‘camping avec chic’!
The idea of roughing it during a regular tenting trip might sound like a good idea if it weren’t for the flying and crawling bugs, wild scary animals, rain, smelly sleeping bags, and Dad’s attempt of al fresco dining.
For some, their first camping experience often becomes their last, but there’s now a chic camping option growing in popularity and it’s called glamorous camping, otherwise known as “glamping”.
Glamping – a fusion of glamour and camping – emerged international and came across the Atlantic over the last decade. It features all of the exposure to the great outdoors as traditional camping, but the amenities found at glamp spots far exceed anything most campsites have on offer.
When you’re glamping, there’s no tent to pitch, no sleeping bag to unroll, no fire to build. Whether in a tent, yurt, airstream, hut, tree house or even wigwam (yes we did day wigwam!) glamping is a way to experience the great outdoors without sacrificing luxury.
