What is Glamping?

If you are not familiar with the term glamping, then you should consider it camping but without the hardships. Roughing it without any of the rough! It’s a fun way of compromising between enjoying a beautiful and remote location in an adventurous setting, without sacrificing any of the comforts. Glamping is the shortened version of ‘glamorous camping’, which means you get real beds, warm and cosy accommodation, and a feeling that the stresses of the world are a million miles away.

There’s even an outdoor BBQ area to use during your stay if you wish! Here, you are sure to meet other couples enjoying their own glamping experience on the Aran Islands.

Still not sure if glamping is for you? Here’s some reasons why glamping for couples in Ireland is so appealing.

These make a wonderfully romantic location from which to watch out over the sea or look up at the stars together at the end of the day with a glass of wine in hand.

4. Things to see and do on Inis Mór

 

dun aonghasa

Forts & Ruins – Dún Aonghasa (Dun Aengus)

The Fort of Aengus is perhaps the island’s most famous attraction with visitors. It is designed in a semi-circular fashion, and sits right on a cliff’s edge above the Ocean. The fort is the biggest of the prehistoric ruins on the island, and to reach it involves walking about one kilometre from the visitors centre. Although it is not known exactly when the fort was built, most of the structure is said to date from the bronze and iron ages, with the first construction going back as far as 1100 BC. As you might expect from its commanding position, their are some spectacular views to be had from the fort!

 

The Black Fort

Dún Duchathair (The Black Fort)

The Black Fort now appears to be smaller than Dún Aonghasa, but in its heyday, was thought to be much bigger. It is a much quieter place to visit as it receives far fewer visitors than its more famous counterpart. Within the walls are the remains of Clocháns, the type of stone hut on which the glamping accommodation design was based.

 

seven-churches

Na Seacht dTeampaill (The Seven Churches)

Although the name indicates seven churches, the remains here are actually of just two churches but with several other domestic buildings. It was a monastic settlement, and a well known place of pilgrimage.

 

 

beehive huts

Clochan na Carraige

We have to mention this, as it is the influence for the glamping units on Inis Mor! It is designed in almost a beehive structure, and is the best preserved example of similar huts that were common all across the island at one time.

Great and memorable experience. Nice, small and cozy camps. Best for two people but can accommodate three. Nice and professional staff. We loved the kitchen facilities which makes up for the small size of camp. Great atmosphere. We hired bicycles and visited the whole island. Must visit place if you’re planning on staying overnight on the island. Highly recommended.

Camped here overnight when I cycled from Galway. Nice campsite, good facilities, you pay for the shower but it last ages. Good kitchen facilities and it's close to the Pubs. I set up the Tent and cycled around the sites on the island very handy.

Stayed here with my friend a few months ago. It was my highlight of the trip and I 100% recommend staying in one of the Clocháns

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!

€2 per shower, no handwash in the toilets. You have to wear wristbands for the duration of your stay which was very annoying. Also the campsite was very loud late into the night with some residents.

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.

Beautiful, quiet, across the street from a sandy beach. Huts are snug for 4 but we were outside a lot, so it never felt cramped. Laundry facilities and larger kitchen available in nearby outbuildings, wifi in main building. An excellent place to unplug and rest.

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!!
