I came across Killarney Glamping at the Grove a few months back when we were researching places for our guide to the best places to go glamping in Kerry.

This place has been bouncing about in my mind since then.

You’ll find Killarney Glamping, a luxurious couples-only glampsite, a stone’s throw from many of Killarney’s top attractions.

Those that spend that night here can expect a swanky (and cosy) room for the night with mountain views and plenty more. Here’s everything you need to know.

So, a visit to Killarney Glamping at the Grove is pretty straight-forward (and pretty good value, too!), but there are some things worth knowing before you hit ‘book’.

1. Location

You’ll find Killarney Glamping at the Grove a handy 1.5km from Killarney Town. The site is a short distance from Killarney National Park and it’s a nice, quirky base for driving the Ring of Kerry.

2. Adults only

Killarney Glamping is a ‘couples only’ destination, so you won’t have to worry about kids legging it about the place. Although you may have adults legging it about the place on their way back from a night in one of the many pubs in Killarney.

3. Two types of accommodation

There are two different options at Killarney glamping – the luxury lodge or the Romantic Glamping Suite. Both are finely decked out with everything you’ll need for a weekend away with a difference (more on this below).

4. Rough cost per night

The cost per night at Killarney Glamping varies depending on day of the week and time of the year. The price, at the time of typing, ranges from €79 to €99 for the glamping suite and €95 to €109 for the Lodge (prices may change).

If sitting outside beneath a toasty heater, sipping a beer, and cooking up a storm on a sheltered BBQ, or toasting marshmallows over a fire pit sounds right up your street, then you’ll love this place.

Killarney glamping is a romantic, couples-only retreat that’s less than a mile from Killarney Town Centre.

So, you can spend the day exploring the area (here’s a guide packed with things to do in Killarney) and kick back in the evening in your funky accommodation. Here are the two options.
