So you’re looking to go glamping in Wexford? Great decision because glamping is heaps of fun and a great way to get back to nature! However, unfortunately, there aren’t loads of options when it comes to glamping in Wexford. But that doesn’t mean that sites don’t exist! Luckily for you, I’ve scoured the internet for every glamping site in Wexford, so you can plan a trip to remember. From treehouses and shepherds huts to yurts and tipis, here are 11 amazing glamping holidays in Wexford.
Price per night: From €127 for 2 people
Location: Mileshogue, nr Ferns
Why stay here: Let’s kick this list off with one of my favourite treehouses in Ireland. As seen on RTÉ’s ‘The Big DIY Challenge’, The Hideout is a little architectural gem. Incorporating style and function seamlessly, there’s so much to discover within such a small space! From its whitewashed wooden walls to the high gloss kitchen cabinets, the treehouse is modern, while still feeling like an off-grid escape. Inside, you’ll find plenty to keep you occupied, from a Bluetooth speaker and binoculars to a few games to play. And that’s not to mention the delicious breakfast hamper awaiting your arrival!
What guests say: “The Hideout exceeded our expectations. Everything about the stay was perfect. From the warm welcome to all the little extras such as games, snacks, and fresh flowers to make our visit feel extra special. The location was perfect. Easy to find but completely tranquil and relaxing at the same time. The only noise was the sound of birds singing outside our window.”
Price per night: From €120 for 5 people
Location: Morriscastle, nr Enniscorthy
Why stay here: Next up we have Morriscastle Pods, which could easily win the prize for the most scenic spot to go glamping in Wexford. If you’re a big water baby or beach bum, this is the glamping site in Wexford for you! Spread out alongside the natural dunes of the Blue Flag awarded beach at Morriscastle, you’ll find miles of sand to ramble on just a stone’s throw from your pod. In fact, you can even enjoy sea views right from the comfort of your private decking! Inside, the pods are ridiculously modern and well-equipped with beds, an ensuite, a kitchen, and more. So book a stay here, I promise you won’t regret it.
What guests say: “The pods are in a perfect location with a view of the beach. Very short walk to the beach each day. They are well equipped with everything you need. Basic kitchen essentials (kettle, toaster microwave and good sized mini-fridge) and a toilet and sink. brought our own camping stove and had breakfast on the deck. There’s a large outdoor table, a small shop on-site, and another shop down the road that has a pizza/chips takeaway service and lovely ice cream!”
Price per night: From €90 for 2 people
Location: Foulksmills, nr Wexford
Why stay here: If you’re a big fan of beautiful countryside, then a stay in Wildflower Meadow Shepherds Hut will be right up your street. I mean, can you imagine anything more idyllic than waking up in a wildflower meadow? Yep, I thought not. But don’t worry because the inside of the hut is just as special as the outside. Modern and beautifully designed, a stay in the shepherd’s hut really doesn’t feel like glamping at all. The luxurious double bed with soft Egyptian cotton linens is oh-so-cosy, and you’ve got a stove to keep you toasty too. Plus, there’s a luxury ensuite inside meaning you don’t have to nip outside to use the loo! Win, win.
What guests say: “I spent one night in the shepherd’s huts and it wasn’t long enough. This is a beautiful setting. You are surrounded by wildflowers and open fields. The breathtaking historical house overlooks the huts. We got a fantastic tour of the house and all the history behind it made the whole setting so much more interesting. On the way in you are greeted by the pet pigs but the best greeting was from Benji the dog. The huts themselves are immaculate and like a modern hotel room with an essence of vintage charm.”
Price per night: From €70 for 4 people
Location: Duncormick, nr Kilmore Quay
Why stay here: Teach Beag Camping Pod is an ideal couple’s retreat or a family camping adventure. Whether you choose to visit with your kids or just with your partner is up to you. But either way, you’re guaranteed a good time! The pod comprises a double bed and two single floor mattresses ideal for kids, as well as a kitchen and dining area, and an ensuite. The hosts even throw in a complimentary starter pack of tea, coffee, eggs and other breakfast goods to get your stay off to a great start.
What guests say: “We had such a great time at Helena’s place. The hut is very cute, they made us feel welcomed and gave us lots of useful local tips, like the Saltee Fish for food. They also were great at allowing our toddler to roam the garden and make himself at home. The hut has lots of lovely wee touches, the nearby Kilmore Quay is gorgeous and we also enjoyed a fire in the evening!”
Price per night: From €225 for 16 people
Location: Carrigmacogue, nr Enniscorthy
Why stay here: Modern? Back-to-basics? Whatever’s more your style, you’ll find a tipi to suit you at Wilton Mills Teepees. Whether you sleep in one of the two cabins or four Nordic tipi tents, you’re guaranteed a great time here. Not least because you can bring a whole fifteen friends or family members along with you for the ride! Their glamping site is ideal for big groups looking for a few days of R&R, good food and exploration. Get ready for lots of time spent outdoors, soaking up the scenery or cooking up a feast on the outdoor BBQ, campfire or pizza oven with food from their dry stock farm. Delicious!
What guests say: “Sinead was a fantastic host and had the place set up perfectly for us. She provided a delicious roast lamb as a welcome gift which was so kind. She was also at the other end of the phone if anything was needed and provided suggestions on different things to do in the area. The location was easy to find and the setting was so picturesque and quiet with access to the river for a dip. The accommodation itself surpassed all expectations with very comfortable beds, linen and superb cleanliness in each tipi/hut and toilet!”
Price per night: From €130 for 4 people
Location: Tagoat, nr Rosslare
Why stay here: Got kids who aren’t easily entertained? Then IOAC Glamping Cabins is one of the best glamping sites in Wexford for you. You don’t book a stay here for the accommodation; you book a stay here for the activities! From archery and high ropes courses to kayaking and raft building, there’s so much to keep both you and the little ones entertained. However, that’s not to say the cabins aren’t great too. Complete with all the luxuries and comforts of home, including readymade beds, electricity, a stove, and tea and coffee making facilities, the cabins will shelter you from the elements.
What guests say: “Thank you so much for an excellent weekend and your exceptional hospitality, making my sisters hen weekend so special. The glamping was just right, the cabins are so cute and comfortable, as are the tents. And the high ropes and raft building were great fun – I’ve got some funny slow-motion videos of people falling in on the raft building which will only add to the great memories. All of the staff were exceptionally helpful and friendly and liaising with you all to pull off this surprise was effortless.”
Price per night: From €57 for 5 people
Location: Badgers Hill, nr Wexford
Why stay here: Set in fourteen acres of private tranquil countryside, the lovingly built Badgers Hill Chalet is a real retreat away from the world. Leave your chalet and you’ll discover regenerating woodland, a stream, pond, and badgers and three family dogs wandering the grounds. The charming low impact chalet is a treat in itself, comprising a sleeping loft with a double mattress, a double futon sofa, a wood-burning stove, and even Wi-Fi. (However, I think this glamping getaway is best enjoyed with a digital detox!) A raised deck connects the chalet to a bright, calm kitchen with everything you could need to cook up a feast. Enjoy your dinner alfresco on the deck while watching the sun go down – it doesn’t get better than this!
What guests say: “This inspiring eco-chalet was even lovelier than described! There was tea, coffee, milk, yummy bread and butter provided – plus numerous touches which made it feel very homely. There’s a cosy chalet with a choice of beds – one up a bookcase stepladder – and a great kitchen with everything you need supplied. Then there’s a verandah for sitting out on to enjoy the evening twilight, but most of all the peace was priceless. A place to dream and recuperate, this is a real haven.”
8. Viking House
Price per night: From €300 for 6 people
Location: Ferrycarrig, nr Wexford
Why stay here: If you’re looking for something seriously unique, then look no further than this Viking House. I mean, how many people can say they’ve slept in a Viking house, after all? With an enviable riverside location and the opportunity to feel like you’ve gone back in time, this really is an experience like no other. The Viking house comes complete with wattle walls, a thatched roof and a central hearth, to add authenticity. And if you really want to get into character you also have the opportunity to dress up in authentic costumes and cook on an open fire! If that wasn’t enough, the house is set in the beautiful grounds of the Irish National Heritage Park, meaning you have the chance to explore the 35-acre park after-hours when the park has closed to the public. Pretty cool, huh?
What guests say: “WOW, what an adventure! This was such a special Airbnb experience. Basically, it was a night at the museum. We had the park to ourselves after the public left. We cooked our dinner over the fire, wandered around the exhibits by ourselves, sat by the estuary watching the birds, and bunkered down in the Viking Hut on comfortable mattresses and sleeping bags (all cleaned to prevent viral spread). It was a really incredible experience and the park staff couldn’t have been nicer!”
Price per night: From €55 for 5 people

Price per night: From €83 for 5 people
Location: Foulksmills, nr New Ross
Why stay here: If your heart is in the forest, a stay in one of Restful Retreat’s Safari Tents will leave you feeling totally rejuvenated and ready to come back to your normal life. Set far away from civilisation, you won’t see a soul here. The only sound you’ll have to wake up to is birdsong and the sounds of the nearby waterfall. (And let’s be honest, there’s nothing bad about that!) Spend your time exploring the woodland, gathering firewood, paddling in the stream, swinging on the oak tree swing, toasting marshmallows on the campfire, or relaxing on the leather couch on the deck, with a drink in hand. Sound idyllic? Then get yourself booked in for a stay here!
What guests say: “We had everything we needed for our stay… wood had been left for the campfire and coal for the BBQ, firelighters, lanterns, all the stuff listed. The beds were really comfortable – and I have a really bad back so that is a point worth noting. The boys’ mattress’ were also comfy and they fought over the click-clack sofa lol! To top it all they bought our twelve now thirteen-year-old son a birthday cake, handmade which we just thought was fabulous and he was overwhelmed by.”
11. Dunbrody Cabin
Price per night: From €182 for 4 people
Location: Arthurstown, nr Waterford
Why stay here: I can’t decide whether I want to enjoy breakfast alfresco or evening drinks on the decking of Dunbrody Cabin more. If I were you I’d spend my entire time here getting fresh air and soaking up the views of the rolling fields. The surroundings here are pretty spectacular but luckily for you, the inside of the cabin is just as impressive! Bright and airy, and decorated in a gorgeous New England style, the cabin has the best interior decor of any glamping site in Wexford. And the best part is that the cabin is set in the woods on the grounds of Dunbrody Country House. This means you have full access to all food and beverage, spa and cookery school facilities. Talk about luxury!
What guests say: “This is a wonderful oasis in the woods that’s both secluded & surrounded by lovely amenities in the hotel a mere few hundred yards away in the hotel. The cabin is cosy, tranquil decor, clean and well laid out – and we toasted a birthday as the sun set and all was well with the world, followed by Dublin making GAA football history as we dined in the bar and retired to our little cabin after to solve all the world’s problems – and we did! Sorry to leave, such fond memories!”
