Reviews from Tripadvisor

“Excellent first time in a Yurt”

Lovely setting with views towards the Wicklow Mountains. Lorcan & Belinda were friendly and great accommodating hosts. The Yurt was very comfortable and the fire pit & BBQ a bonus. Beds were comfortable and warm. We survived a heavy thunderstorm – dry as a bone.

“Fantastic Family Fun”

The photos and website do not do this place justice it deserves! This place is a beautiful countryside retreat! We were really well looked after by host Belinda and felt safe and relaxed the minute we arrived! It is clean and very well managed. We will definitely be back!

“Put the glamorous in Camping!”

What an amazing place in amazing countryside with great welcome from the hosts Belinda & Lorcan. Yurts are fantastic & attention to detail & special touches never ending. Hammocks hanging form trees, Hendricks bar & fire pit int he middle of the woods & so so much more. Not going to spoil any more surprises for you, pack your bags & head there now you definitely won’t be disappointed! A little bit of heaven on Earth!

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, a log cabin and a 3 bedroom cottage. 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.
