This gorgeous Glampsite is a newly opened luxury camping experience located in an area known locally as the ‘Happy Valley’ of Thomastown. Located about two kilometres from Thomastown in the heart of beautiful Kilkenny countryside, the glampsite overlooks the woods and the river Nore, and we’re heading there at the end of August!
Join us on August 20th for three nights in this luxurious and exclusive site. With just 5 units in total, and the entire site yours to make the most of, the kids will have plenty of space to run around. This intimate site offers luxury bell tents and wooden pods with comfy beds, that will convince even the most reluctant camper of the benefits of enjoying the outdoors.
A converted wooden lodge accommodates a kitchen/dining area and bathroom facilities. If you can imagine yourself toasting marshmallows over an open fire and sipping a cold beer while the sun goes down, then you need to experience this amazing place.
We are also perfectly located for you to explore the Sunny Southeast with Kilkenny, Waterford and Wexford within easy reach.
The spacious tents are furnished with comfy beds and set on wooden decks so you can sit out in the evening and enjoy the beautiful view. The tents don’t have electricity but solar lighting is used to create an intimate atmosphere. Electrical points are available in the lodge for charging phones etc. All bed linen is provided. You just need to bring your own towels. We can provide a cot bed if you require one.
The wooden lodge consists of a communal kitchen/living area and with an outside space, perfect for relaxing in the evening. The kitchen is fully equiped with all the crockery and utensils you might need including an oven and a gas hob. We also provide board games and books for your enjoyment. Toilets and showers are also housed in the lodge, just a short distance from your tent.
Outside the lodge you also can cook on the gas barbeque provided. Adjacent to the lodge we have created a campfire area where you can sit around toasting marshmallows or for the more adventurous even cook dinner over the fire.
The Glamping site is located about two kilometres from Thomastown and there is a lovely river walk into town. The river affords an opportunity for fishing, canoeing and river swimming, (a new swimming spot has been developed with a lifeguard on duty in July/August). Thomastown is a vibrant town with a rich heritage and an arty feel, and for one evening during your stay we have included return taxi and an evening meal in the town centre.
