1. Grove House Treehouses

Price per night: From €169 for 2 people

Location: Skibbereen, Co. Cork

Why stay here: Grove House is home to three treehouses in Ireland, each as amazing as the last! And most importantly, they are all 100% constructed from sustainable materials, meaning they leave no carbon footprint. Ascend the tree-trunks that act as steps and enter the treehouse to be greeted by gorgeous cosy interiors. There’s a spacious open-plan living, sleeping and dining area and a separate bathroom with a quirky sink and walk-in shower. But the best thing about these treehouses is their decks. Open the French doors and you’ll discover a large deck overlooking the countryside, with a private two-person Canadian hot tub, chairs and a table.

What guests say: “Treehouse 2 exceeded our expectations and was even better than it looked on the website. All the small, extra touches made us feel very welcome and were much appreciated. The Treehouse is beautifully decorated inside and was very clean upon arrival. The fact that there were tea, coffee and milk waiting for us was an added bonus. The hot tub is fabulous and adds so much to your stay.”

2. Killaloe Luxury Pod

Price per night: From €199 for 2 people

Location: Garranroe, Co. Clare

Why stay here: With breathtaking views of the River Shannon, Killaloe Luxury Pod is the perfect place to find peace and serenity in Ireland. And you’ll definitely find peace and serenity while soaking in the outdoor hot tub in front of these unparalleled views! Inspired by a traditional timber-framed holiday chalet, yet equipped with state of the art amenities, the pod is both close to nature but luxurious at the same time. It’s fitted with a handcrafted double bed, Egyptian Cotton luxury bed linen, a fully-equipped kitchen, a satellite TV and a bathroom with a power shower. And if that wasn’t enough, they even provide a delicious complimentary breakfast too.

What guests say: “This place is so nice! Everything is kitted out so well perfect for a relaxing weekend away! The hot tub is so relaxing and so peaceful at night looking up at the stars. I loved the little touches such as the champagne and chocolate! The pod itself was so cool little things stood out like the tv could be adjusted with a remote, the curtains were electric, the ground coffee and nightgowns! Absolutely gorgeous & spotless place!”

3. The Old Mill Shepherds Hut

Price per night: From €130 for 2 people

Location: Slane, Co. Meath

Why stay here: One of my favourite glamping holidays with a hot tub in Ireland, the beautifully decorated The Old Mill Shepherds Hut is modern and well-equipped. Inside, the elegant hut has its own kitchen and ensuite toilet and shower facilities. It shares communal facilities, such as the BBQ, lawn and small playground, with the safari tents on-site. However, the hot tub is only shared with one safari tent and you have your own designated time slots so it still feels really private! And one of the best things about this shepherds hut is the heater and electric blanket that mean you’ll stay toasty even on those colder nights.

What guests say: “Amazing night away in the shepherd’s hut. Spotless and great facilities. All the utensils that you need cooking in. Hot tub shared but is completely private once you have booked your time slot. Already have it on the list to return! Highly recommend and staff and extremely helpful and friendly!”

4. Slane Safari Tents

Price per night: From €120 for 4 people

Location: Slane, Co. Meath

Why stay here: Set on the same site as The Old Mill Shepherds Hut, you’ll find three amazing safari tents. Although they may have the word ‘tent’ in their name, these beautiful, wooden-framed, five-metre safari tents feel far from the usual tents you’re probably used to sleeping in. Sleeping four people across a luxurious double bed and a large sofa bed, the tents are well-equipped with solid wood floors, electricity, electric blankets, a heater, bedding and towels. It’s basically a home-away-from-home that’s just a little closer to nature! Oh and with the extra special addition of an outdoor six-person jacuzzi.

What guests say: “If you want to get away from it all this is the place. Tent roomy and spacious, bed very comfy, cooked our dinner on our own camp stove then a hot tub in the evening with a glass of wine and a beer watching the night come in. So relaxing. Great walks along the Boyne river passing Slane Castle and through the woods. Great staff too.”

5. Yurty Ahern Yurt

Why stay here: Fancy a hot tub dip overlooking a beautiful field that boasts some amazing sunsets? Then book a stay in Yurty Ahern. This cosy Mongolian yurt is set on a raised floor with insulated walls, a timber-framed roof and an oil-filled electric heater to keep the yurt extra toasty, no matter the weather. The four-person wood-fired hot tub is also set on a covered timber deck, meaning the rain won’t stop you from going for a soak. On-site you’ll also find a range of facilities, including fishing, massages and more, so you’ll never get bored here! Plus, after lots of long countryside walks, you can expect to be refuelled each morning with a complimentary continental breakfast.

What guests say: “We loved our stay in the yurt! Despite it being a raining & windy day, inside the yurt was lovely and warm and very cosy. There were lots of thoughtful touches that made our stay special. The toilet and shower were by far the best I’ve seen at any campsite location. There is lots of space to explore and if you fancy something different at the site you can even buy pizza kits and cook your own pizza in their pizza oven!”

Why stay here: Rock Farm Slane is probably the best glamping site with a hot tub in Ireland. Home to a wide array of accommodation options, such as cabins, yurts, shepherds huts and bell tents, there’s something for everyone! I’m going to kick off their offerings by recommending Swallow’s Nest Tiny House. This unique strawbale cabin was built from barley straw from the farm, and local clay and lime plaster. So if you’re looking for somewhere to stay with a small ecological footprint, then this is the stay for you. Bright and inviting, it also has uninterrupted views across farmland and woods, which are best enjoyed from your private veranda.

What guests say: “Our stay was great! The staff are very friendly and accommodating. Swallows Nest was perfect and very quaint, with a view overlooking the natural pool. The perfect place to get away from it all. The communal kitchen area is equipped with everything you need, is very clean and a great way to meet people also staying. All this along with the use of the pizza oven and the hot tub, we couldn’t have asked for more.”

7. Rock Farm Slane Yurts

Your private veranda is another highlight as it allows you to soak up the sun while dining al fresco.

What guests say: “A wonderful setting and very friendly, thoughtful and kind hosts. The farmers market was a lovely extra bonus. The river walk and chance of kayaking and other activities were fabulous. We will most definitely be back with our dog and can highly recommend it.”

And if it’s cold and rainy, you can cosy up by the highly efficient stove with a continual supply of eco-firelighters, kindling and firewood.

What guests say: “This place is actually the most perfect place. It’s so relaxing with all the animals around pheasants grouse and squirrels, the hot tub in the trees with the fairy lights over it and candles. Everything was so beautiful, the walk is so relaxing and the view of the castle is lovely. This place really exceeded all my expectations and I can’t wait to come back again.”
