Pod Umna Village. A unique opportunity to go
‘Glamping’ in the gateway to the west of Ireland
If you haven’t experienced it yet, ‘Glamping’ is a great way to go camping. You stay in ‘Pods’, not tents. So there’s no canvas. There are no poles or tent pegs, no damp or draughts. Just all the fun of camping, without the hardship.
Whether you’re an experienced ‘Glamper’ or ‘Podder’ or you’re brand new to it, you should also know about one of Ireland’s best kept secrets: the town of Portumna in South East Galway, with its Castle, Abbey, historic Workhouse and Forest park, the River Shannon and Lough Derg, and a great range of shops, pubs and restaurants. Put them together and you arrive at Pod Umna, a unique Pod village, which is one of the most innovative and creative ‘Glamping'’ sites in the country.
Our ‘Pods’ are set in a tree-lined village landscape. They are charming, very comfortable and functional. They make a great daytime base, and can sleep up to five, and each fully insulated Pod comes with mattresses, power and heating, and its deck area, complete with table and chairs.
€80 - €140
per pod, per night
A Bell Tent is a canvas, cone shaped tent supported by a central pole. Our three: Asia, Arabia and Vintage, are raised off the ground and fixed to a decking. Each Bell Tent sleeps a family or group of friends up to six and are ideal for those who prefer the more traditional glamping adventure.
€100 - €120
per tent, per night
The Shepherd's hut was originally used in the 19th/20th Century by shepherds during sheep raising and lambing. Our Hut is specifically for relaxing! It comfortably sleeps 2 and comes with double bed, wall lighting, electric socket, electric oil heater, its own raised decking area.
€100 - €120
