For those who take their outdoor living with a pinch of glamour, The Mourne Mountains and Ring of Gullion area is a little slice of heaven on earth. This wee corner of the world is a glamper’s paradise, and you’ll find there’s no shortage of options for people who want to sleep under the stars while still living a little like them.

Great escape in the Ring of Gullion

Get away from it all but keep in touch with the beauty around you at Bluebell Lane. This campsite is just outside the south Armagh village of Mullaghbawn and just twenty minutes from Newry by car. The owners pride themselves on running a small, clean and comfortable site with excellent toilets, showers and cooking areas. Guests can rest their heads in a glamping pod or an old-style caravan. There‘s also a site to pitch your tent, should some of you wish to keep it old school. Most importantly, they offer peace and tranquility in an area of majestic beauty in the Ring of Gullion.

On the shores of Carlingford Lough, you’ll find the multi-award-winning East Coast Adventure. These guys really know their way around a fun-packed family holiday and they provide a range of exciting experiences on both land and water for all the family. They’ll also look after you when it comes to getting a good night’s sleep and they offer six glamping pods on their site near Warrenpoint. Each pod has two beds, electricity and an outdoor firepit that you can gaze into under the stars.

Rekindle the romance

While they might not fit into the glamping category, the cute stone cottages at Fairy River are somewhat otherworldly and you would be forgiven for thinking you might run into Bilbo or Frodo Baggins on this site. This spot is one of several great options near the fishing villages of Kilkeel and Annalong both of which are close to wonderful walks in and around the Silent Valley. If you need a silent place to stay the night, Carrick Little Camping is just the ticket. This site’s three cosy pods are ideally situated at the foot of the Mourne Mountains and offer stunning mountain and sea views. Closer to the coast is Willowtree Glamping who offer a range of cabins and tents to stay in. Some of the pods have their very own wood-fired hot tubs and all accommodation offers great views of the surrounding Mournes. This is a grown-ups only site that offers peace and quiet for all its guests.

At Gorse Hill Farm Self Catering you’ll find three cosy pods in a mountain retreat. The pods are equipped with memory foam double mattress, electric heaters, sockets and the all-important USB charge points. The location on a hillside gives you spectacular views over the Shimna River Valley towards the mountains and Tollymore Forest Park.

Glamping pods for Thronies

Fans of Game of Thrones® will be eager to reach for their phones and book a night at the historic Castle Ward. This place doubled as Winterfell in the hit series and after exploring the location hotspots by bike, boat or on foot you can bed down deep in the forest of ‘Winterfell’ for a night in one of the estate’s quirky glamping pods.

When it comes to glamping, we have got glamour in spades.
