A Luxury Glamping Ireland Experience
The Old Forge Glamping is located about an 1 hour & 20 minutes from Dublin, on a picturesque old Georgian farm in the Coolkenna area of Co. Wicklow. Our family friendly glamping venue is nestled beside a beautiful native woodland and offers spectacular views across to Lugnaquilla, Ireland’s highest mountain outside Kerry.
Stay in the Shepherd’s Hut or Log Cabin open all year round or book the seasonal Yurts and Safari Tent. Enjoy the adventure and magic of camping with the comforts and hospitality of a B&B.
A Glamping Venue for Large Groups
The Old Forge Glamping venue is ideally set up for group bookings, whether celebrating a family reunion, 40th birthday or organising corporate off-site event – the venue collectively caters for groups of up to 22. We look forward to welcoming you!
La Cabane – Group Entertainment & Stargazing!
La Cabane is our cooking, dining hang out area featuring a beautiful peaked roof structure with wooden decking, dining tables, a new Ooni pizza oven and magnificent scenery. This space is ideal for group bookings, featuring breathtaking views of the mountains and surrounding ancient woodlands.
Everyone will have buckets of fun between toasting smores on the campfire, playing Mölkky, outdoor Giant Jenga or hanging in our new swing area!
The Munny Trail
For horse owners, we also have the beautiful Munny Trail, offering two horse riding trails over 8km across the farm. Bring your horses and friends for a ride out and/or stay the night at our glamping site. Enquire below or find out more on our Munny Trail page here.
Fun with the Kids
Don’t forget to pack your s’more ingredients for the campfire at night – marshmallows, a chocolate bar with squares, digestive or Rich Tea biscuits and sticks for toasting the marshmallows. The children will never forget the experience of toasting a gooey marshmallows, then squishing them between the biscuits while the chocolate melts in the middle. Delicious!
Some families will bring along a guitar and have a sing song or tell ghost stories or simply look at the stars while relaxing by the campfire. Memories made for life!
What are the glamping facilities like?
The venue maintains a lovely old rustic charm, with well equipped shared facilities, including the Glampers Kitchen housed in a restored old granite coach house and the Games Room for kids next door – great for rainy days! We also have the lovely La Cabane cooking and hang out area ideal for stargazing and last but not least, we have 3 flushing toilets and 2 hot shower rooms.
