Top 5 Places to Go Glamping with a Hot Tub in Ireland

Ireland’s countryside is one of the best spots in the world where nature meets heaven. It’s kind of the best place to travel really, especially if you’re fond of outdoor activities like glamping.

It’s one of the current trends in travel—camping outdoors but in an elevated, luxurious style.

We wouldn’t mind glamping with a nice view and a hot tub—it’s a heavenly combination that’s too irresistible to not indulge in!

Top Hot Tub Glamping Retreats in Ireland

We considered the following factors when finding the best glamping destinations in the country:

Location means while we’re looking for a place far from the usual hustle and bustle of a city, the site should be easy to reach, well-maintained and located in a calm area, and has parking spaces for those who brought cars.
Rates to tell if the quality of the overall service and amenities match the pricing.
Amenities distinguish glamping from traditional camping, therefore access to different well-maintained conveniences is a must.
Reputation shows what past guests think of the overall customer service—both from a tourist and a local point of view.

If you’re the type to enjoy beautiful scenery, plenty of activities, and a hot tub to relax after a long day, Waterfall Caves is the best place to go glamping. It’s situated in Northern Ireland, quite far from more popular cities, but definitely worth travelling to!

According to former guests, Waterfall Caves was like a place straight out of a fairytale book. It’s surrounded by a forest and a lake, making the scenery look like a painting.

We love that it even gets better at night! There are lights that surround the place, but their glow is just enough for the guests to appreciate the backdrop of stars.

In terms of amenities, we appreciate that the cabins are all well-equipped with everything the guests need. The facilities are well-maintained as well and always available for everyone.

We also want to commend the staff and the owners for being amazing hosts! They’re very friendly and have lots of stories to tell and of course, food recommendations.

Another thing we love about Waterfall Caves is that there are so many activities to do. If you’re from a large group with varied interests, we’re pretty sure each of you can find something to do—whether it’s fishing, strolling around, buggy rides, or chilling!

And we’re also pretty sure you’ll love the hot tub—it’s one of the best features of the retreat. Imagine relaxing in a hot tub after a long day of doing a lot of activities–who wouldn’t love that?

Lastly, we also like that Waterfall Caves is just near town–around 20 minutes away. It’s easy to visit other attractions nearby without wasting too much time on travelling.

The only problem we see is that some showers need replacing because they’re not emitting hot water. Hot water is a must for guests because it makes the body feel relaxed after such a long day.

Pros

  • Beautiful scenery
  • Offers plenty of activities to do
  • Hospitable staff
  • Well-equipped cabins
  • Pretty cabin interiors
  • Well-maintained facilities 
  • Clean
  • Town is a few minutes away
  • Amazing hot tubs
  • Peaceful ambience

Cons

  • Some showers need replacing
  • Unresponsive to emails

Customer Reviews

Picturesque scenery and lots of activities to do

Came here with my partner and it’s honestly the best place we’ve been to hands down. From when you first check in with the top class hospitality to the absolute magical room and area that you’re staying in. The area and surroundings are amazing and it gets even better when it gets dark with all the vibey lights. There’s plenty to do with the buggy trail, animals and hot tub, not to mention the views. For the price it’s definitely worth it. We’ll definitely be coming back and we’ll be recommending it to all our friends. Just want to give a shout-out to the lad that’s we checked in with, absolute gentleman and definitely added to the experience. — Cameron D, Trip Advisor

Friendly hosts and comfortable accommodations

Well worth a visit even in the midst of autumn. Lovely grounds, hosts very friendly and hospitable with good activities on site (we tried the buggies, fishing and hot tub) with the north coast also on your doorstep. Accommodation was very comfortable with a nice outside hut/fire making for an enjoyable day and evening – just what the doctor ordered 🙂 Thanks Ross & family, hopefully see you again. — Sherpa, Trip Advisor

We recommend Willowbrook Glamping & Hideaways for a simple family or friends getaway. It has several accommodations perfect for glamping with large groups and has plenty of things for everyone to enjoy as well!

In fact, some past visitors told us just how family-friendly it was—lots of things to bond over for families. There are many activities for kids to enjoy like art classes, campfire activities, walks along nature, frog and insect hunting, and even animal-feeding!

We think kids and adults alike will find this interesting—Willowbrook has this thing called Alpaca Walks. A farmer will bring alpacas to Willowbrook and the guests can feed and pet them.

Another thing we appreciate is how the place is well set-up for everyone’s convenience. For example—the hot-tub actually has a roof so even if it’s the rainy season, the guests can still enjoy a warm long soak.

The accommodations are beautiful as well with complete toiletries and facilities for its guests. And even if you need something else, it’s easy to make a request to the owners because they’re very eager to help.

Lastly, we just appreciate the overall peaceful vibe of the place. Glamping is supposed to be relaxing and having fun while surrounded by nature, and Willowbrook just makes that goal easy to achieve. 

Just a warning though—the place is very strict with time. Willowbrook has a curfew and you need to be inside your cabins by a certain time and not make any noise.

Pros

  • Peaceful vibe
  • Perfect for large groups
  • Beautiful accommodations
  • Hot-tub with a roof
  • Family-friendly
  • Well set-up campsite
  • Offers Alpaca walks
  • Accommodating owners
  • Modern facilities

Cons

  • Bathrooms need more cleaning
  • Very strict with time

Customer Reviews

Beautiful and peaceful getaway

The most beautiful and peaceful getaway for me and my fiancé, Wes and Tuesday were lovely and the yurt was stunning, the roof covered hot tub was amazing even on the rainy September evenings. Could not recommend this place more and absolutely will be back again! — Mary M, Trip Advisor

Lovely campsite with good facilities

Just stayed for the one night, but a lovely campsite, well laid out, great facilities, clean showers.. nice gardens for a stroll.. plenty of nice touches from the owners, from the artwork around the site to all the little nooks and crannies around the entire site.. delightful campsite to stay in.. Will be back again sometime.  Didn’t get the opportunity to try the pizzas 🙁 but maybe next time. Friendly welcome from Cathal when we arrived… — Ciaran O’Connel, Google Reviews

Rock Farm Slane is a rustic-themed glamping destination, and if you appreciate such a countryside charm like we do, this is a good place to try glamping. It’s spacious and has a peaceful ambience, which makes the stay really relaxing.

We also kind of agree with the former guests when they said that Rock Farm had everything they needed in camping. It has all the conveniences of modern camping, and it makes the experience more hassle-free for the guests!

Another thing—we admire how well-maintained Rock Farm is too. Everything’s spic-n-span—accomodations, beddings, common areas, and facilities!

We think this is the reason why this glamping site is perfect for large gatherings or reunions. It can handle several guests without compromising the quality of service.

Speaking of quality of service, we also want to give credit to the staff—very polite and helpful. Any assistance you require—they try their best to help you, no questions asked!

In terms of facilities—we suggest taking advantage of the pizza oven and barbecue facilities. And the good thing about it is that the farm actually provides pizza packs and barbecue packs so you don’t need to worry about buying your own.

And of course there’s the hot tub—one of the best amenities in Rock Farm! It’s clean and really warm, perfect for a relaxing soak.

We just hope Rock Farm can improve its signages and lighting around the area. Some guests complain about not being able to see clearly when they take a stroll at night.

Pros

  • Perfect for large family gatherings
  • Well-equipped with modern facilities 
  • Has a rustic-charm
  • Extremely helpful staff
  • Clean and comfortable yurts and cottages
  • Has a nice pizza oven and fully functioning hot tub
  • Spacious and idyllic
  • Clean shower areas and toilets

Cons

  • Signages that lead to different areas need replacing
  • Needs to add more lighting to roads around the farm

Customer Reviews

Magical place with a rustic charm

Absolutely loved our stay at Rock Farm Slane. We rented the entire place for a family reunion of over 80 persons, including the barn and cottages, yurts and glamping site. It was a truly unforgettable experience in such a magical setting. Well equipped with everything we needed for a range of ages from a little baby to over 80s. Wish we could have stayed for longer! The staff were extremely helpful and made us feel welcomed and looked after. Would definitely recommend and hope to visit again in the future.. — Passport, Trip Advisor

Clean and well-equipped accommodations and common areas

Lovely relaxing weekend spent in Rock Farm. Everything was spotless including bedding, toilets, and kitchen supplies . Apple shepherds hut was amazing. The stove was a lovely touch in the huts. It came with everything we needed such as coal, sticks and matches . Would highly recommend the hot tub , really warm and clean . They supplied everything we could think of . Pizza ovens is a must — Zoe Nelson, Trip Advisor

What makes Mayo Glamping stand out to us is its overall uniqueness. It’s the type of place that a guest can easily remember not only because of the glamping experience it offers but also because of its overall look.

The owner  thought about everything when setting up Mayo Glamping because the layout’s good and the attention to detail is amazing! Each accommodation is unique—from the theme to the set-up—making you feel like you’re in a fictional world!

We love that despite the quirkiness, the place offers traditional  glamping features such as hot tubs, sauna, pizza ovens, and fire pits. So even if the place looks like a fairytale town, the experience is very much real.

Another thing we love—it’s located just a few minutes away from Castlebar town. So if you want to experience other things Mayo can offer, you can easily go to town and do just that!

We also want to commend the place in terms of maintenance and cleanliness. Fresh bed linens are always available, communal areas are always clean, and cabin facilities are well-equipped with everything you need.

It’s a kid-friendly place too so bringing your kid, if you have one, is safe. There are activities for them to enjoy so you don’t need to worry about them getting antsy.

The staff are attentive as well and very polite. We love that you can just ask them for something and they’ll readily help you.

We’re just a little turned off that sometimes reservations are cancelled at the last minute, which can be pretty inconvenient to guests. Sometimes the staff also don’t respond to emails so it’s difficult to get more information.

Pros

  • Uniquely themed glamping site
  • Bed linens are always fresh
  • Near Castlebar town
  • Own outdoor fire pit for each accommodation
  • Hot tub and sauna
  • Immaculately clean
  • Has complete communal and cabin facilities
  • Safe place
  • Kid-friendly place
  • Polite and attentive staff

Cons

  • Might cancel reservation at the last minute
  • No response to email inquiries

It’s such a quirky place, a real fairytale place to stay. We loved it, the photos are exactly as it is. The cabins are simply beautiful, very clean, and so cosy. — Kay T, Trip Advisor

Immaculately clean with complete facilities

Fantastic experience from start to finish. The level of attention to detail across every building from the hobbit huts to the communal areas is incredible. The site is immaculately clean and tidy with everything you could want including a hot tub and pizza oven! It really exceeded my expectations and I would highly recommend it to anyone considering a glamping experience. — Dee, Trip Advisor

When we asked past guests what they loved the most about Causeway Country Pods, they told us it was the privacy. While the glamping site was near town, it’s located in a quiet place with a peaceful view, and each pod is made for privacy.

We love that there’s a good distance between each pod, and that the outdoor tubs have roofs and fences surrounding them. The guests are free to soak in the tub for a long time in peace while enjoying the good view.

We also appreciate how well-equipped each pod is—it has a kitchen, a bathroom, and a bed. The doors are made of glass as well so you can still enjoy the view while relaxing inside your pods!

We also want to give credit to the owners and staff for keeping the place well-maintained. Each pod is spotless-clean and the surrounding area is pristine as well.

In terms of accessibility, the glamping site is just a few minutes away from Bushmills town. You can easily explore the area for other attractions and go back to relax in your pod after a long day of strolling around town.

There are several activities to do inside the site if you just want to stay in and enjoy what the place has to offer. You can have barbecues or just relax over campfires while telling stories—it’s a pretty chill place really!

Just something to consider—the pods are always fully booked. We recommend booking in advance if you want to experience the glamping life at Causeway Country Pods.

Pros

  • Peaceful view
  • Spotless outdoor hot tub
  • Clean pod as well as surrounding area
  • Spacious shower rooms
  • A few minutes away from Bushmills town
  • Well-equipped pods
  • Very private

Cons

  • Some breaks creak
  • Some room basics need to be replaced
  • Easily gets fully booked

Customer Reviews

Quiet retreat with a good view

Had a great stay here for our wedding anniversary! An ideal central location for exploring the North Coast, just a few minutes drive to the bustling town of Bushmills but with the pods being out on the farm they are a great quiet retreat with views out over the fields from your bed and private hot tub! The pods were spotless, well equipped and very comfortable. Would love to stay for longer next time. — Sean Heron, Google Reviews

Extremely clean rooms and friendly owners

Just checked out of the pods and we had an amazing stay. The owner is very friendly and the rooms are extremely clean and tidy!! Very peaceful and relaxing stay. Would highly recommend it. —Danielle Lynch, Google Reviews
