Aran Islands Camping and Glamping has 9 specially designed glamping pods, with each one able to accommodate up to four people. These Clochán na Carraige, or Clochans for short, have a design based on the look of the old beehive shaped stone huts that can still be found on parts of the island and around Ireland. Whereas these huts were quite Spartan abodes used by reclusive monks, the Cochlans are the complete opposite. They are fully self-contained and equipped with everything you need to feel as though you are at home from the moment your step through the door. You can find out more about the glamping pods by looking at the menu option on this page.
