We think everyone is ready for a night away from home, so why not change it up and take a glamping trip in one of our beautiful seaside, lakeside and countryside locations. And from 30th April, the NI Executive have announced that caravans and self-contained tourism accommodation can reopen! 

Who says you have to sacrifice your creature comforts on a glamping break.  Glamping itself is defined as “glamourous camping” and in Northern Ireland we have lots of options to suit your tastes.  There’s no sleeping on lumpy ground here – its outdoor camping with amenities and comforts not usually associated with the great outdoors so you can have the best of both worlds.

Where nature meets modern luxury - camping with the added luxuries of beds, electricity, toilets, hot-tubs, fire pits.  Fall asleep under the stars and toast marshmallows round an open fire.

As well as glamping we also have some unique accommodation for you to bed down in for a break.  Anyone fancy a night in an underground cave or staying in the side of a mountain?  We have you covered.  Here’s some ideas for you.*

*All accommodation featured on this page has been through Tourism Northern Ireland's certification process and hold the We're Good to Go industry standard which shows they have agreed to comply with Covid-19 safety guidelines.
