What to bring and not to bring – A simple guide to help you prepare for Glamping at Aran Camping and Glamping

You’ve booked your glamping holiday at Aran Camping and Glamping, and can’t wait to go! First, though, you are going to need to pack. The question is, what should you take with you? This quick guide goes over some of the essentials.

 

Glamping in Ireland

If you are counting down the days until your glamping holiday in Ireland, you might want to think about some of the things you should take with you. As you will be staying in a fully equipped glamping unit, you don’t need to bring as much as you might on a regular camping holiday, but with that said, there are perhaps one or two items you might not have thought about. Whilst this list isn’t exhaustive, it does give you a good base from where to start on what to bring and not bring with you.

What To Take With You

 

Clothes

You are obviously going to need to pack some clothes, and normally you would pack clothes depending on the season you are visiting. It’s fair to say, that Ireland can be a bit different though! Sure, you might have a nice hot Summer’s day when you arrive, but the next day the temperature could drop, rain could appear, or the wind could pick up. Knowing about this change of weather is particularly important especially if you plan to do any hiking during your holiday.

Plan your clothes around a ‘layering’ system, and this way you have every eventuality covered! A warm fleece or coat for the evenings is advisable, as is a rain jacket if you intend to do any hiking. In the summer you will want a sunhat, and if you are feeling brave, something to swim in. During the other months, a warm hat and maybe even gloves might be good options. Spare footwear is also a smart choice in case you get a pair wet, and spare clothes for the kids in case they get wet and muddy is always advisable. The rule of thumb – Pack for the worst, and hope for the best!

 

Shoes

We’ve touched briefly on shoes, but if you plan to do any hiking a comfortable pair of walking shoes is always an advantage. Whilst hiking on the Aran Islands is not technical in nature, a dedicated pair of comfy shoes is always a bonus. In the Summer, you might want to pack a pair of flip-flops or sandals. Having a spare pair of shoes is always a good idea in case one pair gets wet during the holiday.

 

Towels and Bedding

All bedding is provided in the glamping units at Aran Camping and Glamping, so there is no need to bring any additional sheets. Comfortable pillows and duvets are provided, and the units are all heated in case you are staying when the nights get a little chillier. You’ll need to bring your toiletries with you, but that’s it!

Food

Inis Mór has plenty of shops, stores, and places to eat, so you are never going to go hungry! However, if you have any special dietary requirements, you might want to make sure you bring some items with you which you might consider ‘non-standard’. A full range of gluten-free products might not be available, for example. You can also make use of the shared kitchen and BBQ that are on the glamping site if you prefer to make your own meals. Eating alfresco is perfect on a warm Summer’s evening!

This is one place on earth to bring a pair of binoculars

 

Binoculars

This might seem a bit random, but hear us out! If there is one place on earth to bring a pair of binoculars, it’s Inis Mór. They will help you more than ever when looking down expansive stretches of coastline. You’ll be able to pick out nesting birds from a distance and can even see more clearly back to the mainland. At night, why not use them to look up at the stars? You will be amazed at how big our universe feels when you are enjoying time on the deck outside your glamping pod looking up at the sky at night. A glass of wine at the same time is purely optional!

 

A Smile

No holiday is complete without a smile, so bring one along with you! We’re sure you are going to love it on Inis Mór and take away many happy memories with you.

 

 

What to leave behind

 

 

Gadgets

We would say that you should leave behind as many gadgets as you can. Who wants to be looking at Netflix when you have an amazing star-filled sky to look at? Who wants to check email, when there are new friends to be made and music to be listened to at a traditional Irish pub? Sure, take your phone and use it for videos and photos to share with your family and friends, but enjoy your time ‘in the moment’ more. The laptop can stay at home!

 

The Car

You will need to leave your car behind at the ferry port at either Doolin or Rossaveal outside of Galway before travelling to Inis Mór as the ferries do not carry cars. The great news though, is that Inis Mór is compact enough to get around either by hiking or by hiring a bicycle. This will bring you even closer to feeling at one with nature. An important point to remember is that any items that you want to bring with you, will need to fit in luggage you can carry yourself. Parking is available at both ports for your vehicle.

 

Further Information

If you have any further questions as to what you should or shouldn’t bring with you for your glamping holiday at Aran Camping and Glamping, please get in touch with our team. We will be happy to answer, and also provide any further information about the island you require. Here’s to planning your perfect getaway break on the Aran Islands!

Family Glamping in Ireland along the Wild Atlantic Way

Family Glamping in Ireland along the Wild Atlantic Way

Ireland Glamping » Posts by admin

Ireland’s The Wild Atlantic Way is the perfect route along which to take a family Glamping road trip. Whether cherry picking different sections in weekend blocks, or completing the entire route in several weeks, you can be assured of seeing Ireland at its delightful best.

The Wild Atlantic Way

At over 1,600 miles in length, the Wild Atlantic Way is one of the longest coastal routes in the world. The route is designed to showcase the very best of Irish natural beauty. You can expect stunning views of coastline, countryside, enchanting villages and ancient monuments along the way. It is a great place for a family adventure, and there is a range of accommodation to choose from along the way varying from campsites to hotels. One form of accommodation growing in popularity with families travelling along the Wild Atlantic Way is glamping, and here’s why.

Glamping on the Wild Atlantic Way

Glamping is often referred to as posh camping, but that’s not really an accurate description. In reality, glamping has little to do with camping at all, apart from the fact that most glamping units or pods are normally located on a camping/glamping site. The reason why glamping is so different from camping, is that there is no need to set a tent up, or indeed to have any experience in sleeping outdoors. Instead, you will stay in a glamping pod or unit.

What is a Glamping Unit or Pod

Glamping units or pods are forms of permanent on-site accommodation. They can vary from yurts to treehouses and everything in between. On the Aran Islands, the glamping units are specially designed based on the shape of the island’s ancient stone huts known as Cochlans.

Glamping pods are normally self contained, having somewhere to shower, cook, and store food. Some may even have outdoor terrace areas and access to shared campsite facilities. In this respect they make an excellent choice for families travelling along the WIld Atlantic Way. Having somewhere the whole family can stay in the same building, being able to cook, and not having to worry about carrying camping gear and bedding is a great bonus when planning a road trip.

Glamping in Ireland

There are a number of glamping sites in Ireland, with perhaps the most unique one being on Inis Mor. The largest of the Aran Islands, Inis Mor is located almost directly in the middle of the Wild Atlantic Way, and an essential stopover point for visitors. Although many people choose to visit the Aran Islands during a day trip, it is by staying for a few nights that the true beauty and nature of the island is revealed.

Glamping on Inis Mor

The purposefully designed glamping units on Inis Mor are suitable for families of up to 4 people. Comfortable and cosy, they contain everything you need to make yourselves feel at home right away. Bedding is provided, there is a fridge to store food, cooking facilities inside as well as a shared camp kitchen, and a shower room. Outside, it is possible to make your own BBQ and enjoy dining al-fresco underneath the stars at night.

 

 

What to do on Inis Mor

Inis Mor is almost a microcosm of the Wild Atlantic Way itself. If you only have a few days of vacation, you could head straight to the island and have a full and memorable experience. Outdoor activities such as hiking and cycling are popular on the island, and there are a number of interesting archaeological sites and other notable places of interest to see. Kids will love renting bikes out and being able to cycle from one end of the island to the other, as well as seeing the pony and carts that trot along the roads.

 

Main Highlights of Inis Mor

dun-aonghasa

Dún Aonghasa (Dun Aengus)

This is the most famous landmark on the island. An incredible fortress designed in a semi-circular fashion, the fort is thought to be over 2000 years old. The fort can be reached after leaving the visitors centre nearby, from where it is a 10 minute climb to the top. The views are certainly worth it though, and it is one of the most remarkable prehistoric sites and fortresses in Europe.

 

 

Dún Duchathair (The Black Fort)

The Black Fort is just as intriguing as the first fort, but receives only a fraction of the visitors. As such, it is a great place to explore when staying at the glamping site, as if you get there early enough, you may be the only people there! Inside the fort are the remains of beehive huts, and the walls reach 6 metres in height in some places.

 

the worm hole

The Worm Hole

A curious rectangular hole at the bottom of the cliffs, which is believed to have been created by natural erosion. From the top, it looks like it might even be a swimming pool! Waters ebb in an out of the pool from underneath, and it is fascinating spending some time there simply looking it at. Red Bull at one point held a cliff diving championship there. We certainly don’t recommend you try this yourselves!

 

puffing holes

The Puffing Holes

Again, a curiosity that has been created by natural erosion, the Puffing Holes get their name from the water which is pushed into caves and holes at sea level, and is then transferred up the cliffs above, spouting out when it reaches the top. The Puffing Holes are not very well marked, and so you will need to ask at the glamping site for accurate directions before you leave.

The site situated in very comfortable place; just 5 minutes walk from village, the beach just over the wall, beautiful surround. It amazing that only for 10 euros you can use the kitchen in full: they have all dishes, cutlery, pans, etc. The field for tents is quite big and flat. The girl in reception explained about all attractions of Aran island. We are very pleased.

Visited here last Summer. Very convenient spot. You had to pay to use the showers but I supposed that's fair enough when it's €10 per person per night to camp. The site and area is a little bit "dead" but it is a small island after all, well within walking distance though to the lively areas. Place could be a little more scenic but it is nice all the same. Overall - good value! I will be visiting again this Summer, in early August.

Great location and generally a good site. Felt a little unwelcomed when we arrived. We got off the ferry around 11.30am and the first thing we wanted to do was offload the tent etc... Check in isn't until 1pm which is surprising as people coming off the ferry would want to dump their stuff first surely (which they did as everyone else was doing the same as us) just doesn't seem well designed. Anyway we were allowed to set up the tent (so long as we didn't use the facilities) then went off for the day and returned late in the evening. It is a very nice site and the price is very reasonable for camping. Not sure I would stay in a pod for the price though. You could get a b&b for cheaper!

The cheapest place to stay on the island. 10euro per person in tent. 2euro extra for the shower but it's so long working that two persons can use it in this time. The pods are looking very nice but I wouldn't pay this 125euro per night for this, overpriced Ireland as usual.

From start to finish I'd an excellent three day stay here.The owner was a gentleman, he unexpectantly to us, was waiting at the port for the ferry to arrive to collect his guests and drive them to the glamping site.Being midweek early October it was quiet with only a few pods occupiedThe pods were first class, spotless, like a hotel room with everything you'd want.The location is perfect, a few minutes walk from the port and Kilronan village with a beach and amazing views out over the water.It was sad having to leave, really looking forward to returning.

Free entry to Dun Aonghasa fort offered with stay. Brand new and excellent facilities at time of writing, great location for Kilronan with beach on the doorstep. Only downside was expensive (€2) shower tokens and painfully scalding water from the showers (solar heated, very hot day)! Otherwise excellent.

We stayed at Aran Camping Glamping over the weekend and found it a superb place for a break. The Units are tastefully designed and very clean. The water in the shower was hot, the kitchen room spacious, and it was close enough to the main village. Will definitely return!!
