Up in the North-West of Ireland by the coast 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 Beach cabin, 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 other guest. 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 fires, fish in their small boats and join in if you dare.

Lovely area and a very comfortable yurt. I particularly liked two things: the little bbq deck and the second duvet option. Just picture it: a nice afternoon bbq in the sun and then in the evening when the weather turns, the sounds of rain outside while you’re inside cosied up under two duvets with a book. A perfect relaxing weekend!

Derrybeg is the ultimate cute coastal Irish village. This location was close to everything and the fun Irish pub was about a 20 minute walk away. Food and a grocery store were less than 10 minutes away. I loved this glamping experience and it was super cozy. James built everything himself and it’s a very special place. Loved my little pod and will come back soon!
