by

So I’ve got some good and bad news for you.

The bad news is that if you’re thinking of going glamping in Leitrim there’s only a small handful of places to choose from.

However, the good news is that I’ve rounded all of them up in this article so that you can easily find the glamping holiday in Leitrim that suits you!

And while options are limited, they sure as hell make up for in quality and variety.

So from shepherds huts and yurts to gypsy wagons and hobbit holes, here are 7 amazing places to go glamping in Leitrim.

1. Battlebridge Glamping

Price per night: From €100 for 4 people

Location: Battlebridge, nr Carrick-On-Shannon

First up we have one of my top two favourite places to go glamping in Leitrim: Battlebridge Glamping.

Home to cosy glamping pods, the most adorable pink shepherds huts, a stilted cabin, and even a vintage caravan, there’s plenty to choose from here!

But no matter which option you go for, you’re bound to have an amazing time, not least because the site is set on the banks of the River Shannon and surrounded by some of Leitrim’s best countryside.

Wake up to the sounds of birdsong and the river flowing, before going out to feed the resident swans.

After a long day of exploring, dig into a feast at the on-site gastropub serving delicious, locally-sourced grub.

What guests say: “Can I just start off by saying ‘wow’, what a place, it’s a credit to Eilish and the staff. The atmosphere, the scenery, the general location is beautiful. I have never before been to a place where every time I went to the public toilets the floors had been washed and the place was so clean and fresh. Our hut was absolutely spotless. The bedding and colours were so fresh and inviting and when we did eventually settle down to sleep it was so comfortable and we all slept very well.”

2. Pink Apple Orchard Yurts

Price per night: From €100 for 5 people

Location: Corry, nr Bothar Na Glearagh

Pink Apple Orchard is probably the most famous glamping site in Leitrim – and for good reason!

The site is home to a wide array of accommodation options to suit everyone’s taste and budget.

But one of my personal favourite places to stay at Pink Apple Orchard is in one of their cosy yurts.

Individually set within a beautiful cider orchard, each yurt is nestled within nature, with views of Sliabh an Iarainn Mountain.

The photo above speaks for itself when it comes to the gorgeous and cosy interiors; however, the real reason to book a stay here is for the scenery.

Anticipate long countryside walks, fresh air, and stargazing around the firepit.

Sound idyllic? Yep, I thought so.

What guests say: “Every part of our experience surpassed our expectations. The yurts all share a quirky and cosy atmosphere. The setting of the rooms down the winding paths in the middle of the cider apple orchard was just magical. The communal seating area with campfire, barbeque and pizza oven is covered and adjacent to the kitchen. From great food, cider, cosy beds, amazing setting and the most friendly and helpful hosts, Pink Apple Orchard is a glampsite that not only suits parties but peaceful family holidays too.”

3. Pink Apple Orchard Gypsy Wagon

Price per night: From €70 for 2 adults, or €87.50 for 2 adults and 2 children, or €93.75 for 4 adults

Location: Corry, nr Bothar Na Glearagh

If you’re looking for a unique glamping experience in Leitrim that will take you back in time, then look no further than the Pink Apple Orchard Gypsy Wagon.

Despite being pretty compact, the bow-topped wagon can accommodate up to four people, making it ideal for a couple’s retreat or a family getaway.

The wagon comprises two double beds set as bunk beds, a small electric stove, candlelight, and indoor seating.

However, my favourite thing about the wagon is its setting.

Set in its own purpose-built wooden enclosure with handcrafted Willow partitions, the wagon is completely private from the rest of the site.

This means you can relax and BBQ to your heart’s content, without anyone peering in!

What guests say: “I cannot recommend this absolute gem of a spot enough. The welcome on arrival, the unbelievable food, trad music, amazing yurts and gypsy wagon (with the comfiest beds I’ve slept on in a long while), the campsite and its amenities, in general, cannot be faulted. Jessie and Martin and their gorgeous family were so warm and welcoming in all of the activities.” 

4. Pink Apple Orchard Tipi

Price per night: From €60 for 2 people or €66.25 for two adults and one child

Location: Corry, nr Bothar Na Glearagh

Booking a stay in the Pink Apple Orchard Tipi is pretty much a no-brainer for a whole multitude of reasons.

Firstly, it’s the cheapest place to go glamping in Leitrim.

Only €30 each a night? Yes, please!

Secondly, out of every recommendation on the list, it’s the one that will get you the closest to nature.

And thirdly, despite the cheap price, it’s still oh-so-lovely!

The tipi is completely handcrafted from locally sourced wood with a unique wooden door that blends into its surroundings.

Whether you opt for a romantic weekend away for two, or a long family holiday with your little’un, you’re guaranteed a great time here without breaking the bank. 

What guests say: “What a spot! We stayed in a tipi and it was sooooo cosy, warm and very comfortable. We had our one-year-old with us and they supplied the travel cot for us, along with the bed in there we had plenty of space. In the evening there were solar powered fairy lights inside the teepee, along with tea lights which made it very magical and peaceful. The electric heater kept it nice and warm too. There are toilet and shower facilities which were spotless.”

5. Pink Apple Orchard Hobbit House

Well, you can do just that in the wonderfully unique Pink Apple Orchard Hobbit House.

The house itself comprises two king-size beds, two single beds, a toasty wood-burning stove, a private dry composting toilet, and a hot outdoor shower.

Nearby you’ll find the BBQ and traditional pizza oven so you can cook loads of delicious meals with your family and friends!

What guests say: “This place is wonderful. Martin and Jesse are great hosts with the most welcoming smiles around. They have created a little slice of love in Leitrim. We stayed in the Hobbit House. It’s a cool little house with a small wood stove that heats the room to perfection. The Hobbit House also has its own shower and toilet right outside the door. It’s all private and hidden away. The shower was hot. The beds were lovely with a cosy comforter to stay warm at night.”

6. Luxury Boatel

One of the more unique places to go glamping in Leitrim, this Luxury Boatel may be the priciest option on this list, but believe me when I say it’s worth every single cent!

Whether you’re a fan of water or not, sleeping on a boat will be an experience you won’t forget anytime soon.

What guests say: “We can’t recommend this one highly enough! Nothing short of 10/10. On arrival, we were amazed at this beautiful Dutch barge, and the welcome we received from our host Mary and partner Jørn was really warm and friendly. The barge itself has been extremely well built/fitted-out/decorated by it’s rightfully proud owners – anyone who has an eye for detail whether that be for engineering or home-style will spend plenty of time just taking it all in.” 

7. Ard Nahoo Eco Cabins

Price per night: From €146 for 2 people

Location: Shriff, nr Sligo

Okay, so this recommendation isn’t technically glamping per se as you have a proper roof over your head, but Ard Nahoo Eco Cabins is too good not to include.

And any place that allows you to get closer to nature is good in my books!

This multi-award-winning family business is home to three cabins, with Hawthorn feeling the closest to glamping.

The cabin benefits from shaggy sheepskin rugs, unique cast iron beds designed by a local artist, and a quaint kitchen area.

As far as sleeping’s concerned, you’ve got two twin beds and a raised loft-style double to spread yourselves across!

And if that wasn’t enough, you’ll also arrive to an organic welcome pack of Fairtrade tea, coffee, homemade bread, local organic eggs, butter, milk, and muesli.

What guests say: “We stayed at the lovely Ard Nahoo for three nights and we had a lovely time. We stayed in the Hawthorne cabin which was very comfortable and cosy. The amenities were all functioning and everything was kept nice and clean. We also enjoyed the yoga classes and the lovely living room area which you can use to chill in between practice or treatments let alone the gorgeous outdoor hot tub facing the fields which made us really chill and relax at the end of the day.”
