2. The Millhouse
The lovely Old Mill at Slane welcomes glampers with some unique glamping options for an unforgettable stay. The 5m diameter safari tents sleep four and include electricity, solid wood floors, a double and a sofa bed – it’s not really camping at all!
There’s a fairytale Shepherd’s Hut for two, complete with kitchen and ensuite toilet and shower, or how about sleeping in a Treehouse! For railway fans, there’s even a quirky Railway Carriage that sleeps 4.
Guests can make use of the barbecue area and outdoor 6-person jacuzzi tub for the ultimate stay. Bring family and friends – there’s something for everyone here!

Lit by fairy lights, the roof has an opening for stargazing and providing natural light during the day. Five guests can sleep well on a king-size, single and a double sofa bed. Take a morning stroll to the Ancient Loughcrew Cairns and drink in the fresh air and peaceful surroundings.
There’s also an on-site playground, tea room, games room and communal kitchen.
4. Boyne Valley Glamping
Treat yourself to a stay in the Emperor Tent at Boyne Valley Glamping. As its name suggests, this solo bell tent is palatial and has room for the whole entourage (well, up to 5 guests anyway). With gas heating and electric lighting, you have all mod cons.
The lounge area has a coffee and tea maker and there’s a separate Glamper’s Kitchen, indoor shower and eco-toilet. The rental includes a tasty breakfast, Wi-Fi and there’s a romantic fire pit.
