“What a Stunning Location!”
Reviews from 2016 and 2017
Where do I start. We had the most magical 24 hours stay at the Old Forge Glamping. From the moment we arrived to when we left everything was just perfect. Belinda was an incredible host. She was there to great us show us the kitchen and bathroom set up and of course our beautiful tents to stay in. Each tent has its own outside area a fire ready to go for toasting marshmallows and your own barbeque. We had three families ranging from 4 to 8. We brought four ponies and had the most amazing adventure ride around the estate. It truly is a wonderful adventure for any family and we will definitely be back again!


The Old Forge Glamping is a beautiful glamping venue set in the Wicklow hills. Nestled beside a small woodland and over looking Lugnaquilla we have 4 yurts and a log cabin. The setting is what makes the Old Forge Glamping so special. Each yurt or log cabin has its own personal campfire and bbq area. There is also an outdoor bar.

Each tent is totally unique giving it a completely different sleeping experience. Arrive down to The Old Forge Glamping and settle your friends and family in for a relaxing fun experience. Some people want to chill out with a rug over their knees beside the campfire overlooking the hills while the kids run around in complete freedom in our woods and fields. BBQ a delicious meal outside your tent and then get your smores ready for dessert.

If it’s activities you are looking for head to Rathwood where you will find retail shops, a woodland walk, a restaurant, a maize of Ireland, a falconry and much more, alternatively go next door to The Chocolate Garden where you will find chocolate workshops. Mangans Loop is a walk up a beautiful mountain or Altamont Gardens by the Slaney River for the easier option. Huntington Castle is also within 10 minutes drive and has lots to offer so you will never have a shortage of things to do in the area.





About Us

Our tents are set on the grounds of a historic Georgian house and farm overlooking the rolling Wicklow Mountains. Each tent has a double and two single beds with full linen provided to make sure you get the home from home experience but right in the heart of nature.

Because we only have a small enclave of 5 tents you will relax into the community feel of the glamping experience. There is freedom for the children to run around the surrounding fields and the adults can sit back and chat around the campfire toasting marshmallows.



The Munny Trail for horse owners

We have set up a 12 km x-country path with heaps of fences en-route of which all are optional. The Red Trail provides some easy and challenging options including banks, ditches, fly fences, steps and streams for the horse owner who wants to bring their horse glamping too.

Join us for our fantastic ride out and keep your horse overnight in one of our stables or walled garden paddocks.
