Price per night: From €175 for 2 people

Location: Mullanyduff, nr Bundoran

Why stay here: Probably my all-time favourite place to go glamping in Sligo, Teapot Lane Treehouse looks like it was taken straight out of a fairytale! Not least because you have to head over a wooden bridge and down an enchanting path to even reach it. Nestled in the woods with a large mature tree coming up through the deck, this is one magical and romantic stay for couples. Inside, the adults-only treehouse is just as special. The plush interior boasts a beautifully dressed kingsized bed, window seats with lots of cushions, a potbelly stove and a small kitchen area complete with a wine fridge!  Wake up in your sumptuous bed, make a coffee on your Nespresso machine and relax outside beneath the green summer leaves. Grab a book and a glass of wine later in the day and settle into paradise.

What guests say: “Why stay in a treehouse and cook your own food when you could stay in a hotel for the same price? Because glamping rocks. Just back from two nights in Teapot Lane with my wife and we had such a great time. It’s such a relaxing and fun experience. I can not praise it highly enough. The treehouse is so spacious and funky. We cooked then sat on the deck and drank hot whiskeys. If you’re considering doing it then go, you will not regret it.” 

2. Teapot Lane Yurts

Price per night: From €170 for 2 people or €180 for 4 people

Location: Mullanyduff, nr Bundoran

Why stay here: Want to stay at Teapot Lane but fancy slightly different accommodation to the treehouse? Well, you’re in luck because Teapot Lane is also home to a field of traditional Mongolian yurts. And the best part is that they’ve got yurts to suit both couples and families. So whether you’re looking for a romantic getaway for two or a fun-filled family break, they’ve got you covered. Nestled in scenic woodland, the smaller yurts come complete with a full-sized double bed and comfy day beds, while the larger yurts benefit from one double and two single beds. Alongside lots of cushions and throws, there’s also an electric heater to keep you toasty on even the coldest of nights. Nearby you’ll find the well-equipped communal loos, shower, cabin kitchen, and woodland shelter.

What guests say: “We stayed here this weekend with a hen party in a group of 19. The place is even nicer than the pictures! They do not do it justice. The yurts are gorgeous and the beds are so comfy! Proper hotel standard. The bar is gorgeous and there is everything you need there. The DJ and chef were fantastic and we danced the night away on Friday! The flower crown making was a lovely experience and the tea party was really nice too.”

3. Ard Radharc Tipi

Price per night: From €60 for 2 people

Location: Skreen, nr Sligo

Why stay here: If you’re looking for a glamping holiday in Sligo that gets you a little bit closer to nature, then look no further than Ard Radharc Tipi. Inside the cute and cosy tipi, you’ll find a double mattress, lots of cosy blankets and towels, a lantern, an electric heater, and two armchairs for you to sit back in and read a good book. Outside the story is much the same with a lovely little dining area for you to eat alfresco. Whether you’re soaking up the morning sun with a coffee or watching the sunset with a glass of wine, it’s a pretty idyllic spot. And once the sun goes down you can toast marshmallows in the fire before cosying up in your fairy-lit tipi. Nearby there’s also an indoor dining area, utility room and modern bathroom for your use!

4. Ox Mountain Treehouse

Price per night: From €80 for 5 people

Location: Masshill, nr Carrowreagh-Knox

Why stay here: Leave your devices at the door because this treehouse is uniquely designed and constructed to be at one with its natural surroundings. A real escape from modern life, you’ll feel completely detoxed after a stay here. Before you enter the treehouse, you’ll notice the ample space around the accommodation from which you can soak up the surroundings. There are even outdoor hammocks to relax on! Inside, the interior is just as magical. Self-contained with a double bed, single bed and double sofa bed, kitchenette, and bathroom, there’s everything you could want and more. On rainy days, cosy up by the log effect stove heater and watch endless hours of TV. And on sunnier days, take on one of the many team bonding exercises you’ll find at Ox Mountain Adventure, such as sumo wrestling and tug of war.

What guests say: “This is a place where you can really get away from society and enjoy the peace and quiet. It is run by a lovely family who will go out of their way to help you (for example, we woke up one day to unexpectedly find fresh eggs left outside for our breakfast). Although it rained a lot during our trip, we were warm and cosy in our treehouse with a good book, on the edge of a wood and surrounded by mountains – perfect!” 

5. Ox Mountain Red Bus

Location: Masshill, nr Carrowreagh-Knox

Why stay here: For one of the most unique glamping experiences in Sligo – and, well, Ireland as a whole – book a stay in the Red Bus. I mean how many people can say they’ve slept in a double-decker bus? (Well, intentionally, of course!) The Red Bus is a 1991 Leyland olympian semi-open top bus that was used on route 555 Loughton to London until 1999. Later it was used for London City tours before it was converted into the accommodation you see today! Accommodating six people, the bus is ridiculously well-equipped and it even benefits from lots of original features, such as the driver’s seat and steering wheel. Downstairs there’s a kitchen, stove, TV, breakfast bar, and a seating area during the day/king-size bed at night. And upstairs is fitted with a double bed, shower, toilet, and an open-top seating area with a decking terrace. Pretty unique, huh?

What guests say: “We stayed here for one night and absolutely loved it. We received a lovely warm welcome. The Red Bus is a very unique funky accommodation, with everything we needed. The bed upstairs was super comfy and the balcony was lovely to sit outside and eat breakfast. The children loved playing with the dog Hunter, getting to see the rabbits, goats and chickens, and playing table tennis and basketball. Lovely walks very close by. Would highly recommend this place.”

6. Ox Mountain Shepherds Hut

Price per night: From €80 for 2 people

Location: Masshill, nr Carrowreagh-Knox

Why stay here: Ox Mountain clearly pull out all the stops when it comes to glamping accommodation, don’t they? Next up is their Shepherds Hut, a romantic little hideaway for two! The beautifully restored hut comprises a single open room housing a comfortable sofa that folds out to a double bed, and a double storage press with a worktop area. The cabin next to the hut houses a toilet and kitchenette with an electric kettle, toaster, a gas camping stove and a BBQ for you to prepare and cook your meals. The surrounding countryside is just as beautiful and you can enjoy the scenery no matter rain or shine. If it’s sunny, eat your meals alfresco, or if it’s raining, cosy up inside in front of the electric space heater while soaking up the views through the window. 

What guests say: “We arrived a few minutes early, to be greeted by Monica who showed me the well-serviced kitchen and wash area before we stepped into the warm and cosy shepherds hut, a truly beautiful space to view the exquisite mountains and countryside as well as take in the peace and tranquillity. The place was spotless with ample clean bedding. I had a fantastic night’s sleep ready for my onward journey. I must say a better welcome from Monica and Dermot you could not receive anywhere in Ireland.”

7. The Hide Cabin

Location: Ballinfull, nr Sligo

Why stay here: Last but absolutely by no means least we have The Hide Cabin. This cabin is one of the best options for those who aren’t quite ready to go glamping just yet and want a little more luxury. Cosy and compact, the luxurious coastal cabin houses everything you could possibly need for a relaxing stay. This includes a double bed, kitchenette, bathroom, and Wi-Fi. However, while the inside is impressive, the main reason to say at The Hide is for its surroundings. Just ten minutes from the nearest beach and fifteen minutes from the mountains, there’s plenty to do for surfers and hikers alike. But if the weather’s not on your side, you can cosy up inside with the cabin’s generous supply of books, jigsaws and puzzles.

What guests say: “A small hidden escape, surrounded by country greenery and coastal life. From Benbulbin to Strandhill beach, this getaway home is strategically located for you to enjoy a balance of nature and city. Clean, spacious and artistically decorated, my partner and I really got to relax, wind down and enjoy the art of peacefulness. We highly recommend this place for people wanting to stay for two nights or more so you can savour all that this land has to offer.”
