I first heard mention of ‘The Hideaway’ at Dromquinna Manor while doing a bit of research for a guide to the best places to go glamping in Ireland.
It. Looks. Class.
But my God it’s fierce pricey (more on that below)
Here, have a watch of this video first, before we get into everything you need to know before you visit.
The Hideaway at Dromquinna Manor
You’ll find the most luxurious place to glamp in Ireland in Dromquinna Manor in County Kerry.
Dating back to the 1890s, Dromquinna Manor is a stunning waterside estate that’s set on 40 acres of parkland.
The Hideaway Tent is located on the grounds of the hotels and it’s like glamping on steroids.
Accessed through a private gated garden, the tent is set within a secluded woods with stunning views out over the cliff and water.
Welcome to a little chunk of paradise.
What you’ll experience during your stay
So, I was sold when I read, ‘Breakfast to your door, mini bar and total seclusion are all that is needed to escape from everything’.
The Hideway is perched on a cliff overlooking Kenmare Bay, treating visitors to the view in the image above.
You’ll also be able to soak it all in from your bed.
How the folks at Dromquinna Manor describe it:
‘Luxury is a word often abused but a real personal luxury is a rare find. The Hideaway fulfils a total sense of escape from the real world resulting in a personal luxury like no other. It is nature and natural in sound and vision that connects with your inner soul and switches you off, totally.
A private gate leads to your sanctuary that is perched on a cliff overlooking Kenmare Bay. You are greeted with a private garden and path that leads to your tented home. Decorated with an eclectic mix of antiques and native rustic furniture the style is laid back natural elegance. The only intrusion is the slow fly-by by your only neighbouring resident, the Heron.’
If you stay at the Hideaway, you’re tent will include:
- A king Size Wilderness Bed bed made up with crisp, white bed linen.
- Plush Towels
- Private bathroom (eh, I’d hope so!)
- Private veranda with armchairs and breakfast table
The Hideaway tent is stocked with the following items to enhance your stay:
- Library of books, board games, playing cards and magazines
- Mineral Water
- Wine glasses and opener
- Towels and bathrobes
- Voya Toiletries
How much it’ll set you back
OK, firstly, it’s worth noting that the Hideaway is only open from May 3rd to September 1st each year.
Here’s how much it’ll drain your funds:
- €350 on night 1
- Additional Nights €250
It’s also worth noting that there’s a minimum stay of two nights… so you’re spending €600.
That’s pretty damn steep. Have you stayed here? Or do you know someone that has? Let me know in the comments below!
