Glamping in an Urban Setting.

Urban location. Open, cosy and warm all year!

Set in the Heart of Portumna Town, Co. Galway. Podumna offers visitors a very rare and unique experience, all the fun and feel of a woodland setting with the added convenience of a Town central location. If you haven’t experienced it yet, ‘Glamping’ is a great way to go camping. You stay in Pods, Huts or Cabins, 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.

To Pod or not to Pod? That is the question…

You stay in Pods or Cabins, 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. For those not quite ready to dip their toes into the world of Glamping, we also have single, double and family rooms in our main building.

Before back to school trip My wife and I always wanted to do a glamping trip and when this popped up on our feed, practically on our doorstep(Galway city) we jumped at it.It was something totally different for our kids who absolutely lapped it up,they especially loved hanging with the chicken and bunny that they could feed.The great weather undoubtedly helped the buzz in the camp as all came together and mingled with beer and wine,so totally relaxed there a massive credit to Dick and his wifes laid back ethos.The facilities were top class for such a small operation and the guests had the run of the camp-dining, cooking etc with all possible utensils supplied or a cheeky takeaway allowed.Such peaceful surroundings too with ample activies off site local woods,old castle,and the wonderful marina on lough Derg there was plenty to do. We all thoroughly enjoyed this trip and all wished a second night was booked but couldn't arrange to a full house-a great sign. We will definitely return...and possibly without the kids(fierce romantic)

Teens and Trips What a find. Wonderful family business with amazing facilities and comfort. Perfect location with swimming in the lake less then 5 mins away, forest Park to explore, late night fire pit, visuals on site transform you into feeling you having your own mini festival. Friendly warm atmosphere and a wonderful night's sleep. Don't not go it is a place not to be missed. Thanks to Dick, Liz and Grace who are so welcoming and informative.

Top class holiday experience What can we say only this was a top class holiday from start to finish. We brought our 16 year old son and his 2 pals for 5 nights. They enjoyed every minute and want To go back ASAP. Liz, Dick and staff were so friendly and helpful. Our pod was comfortable and fit 5 of us easily. The facilities were spotless and spacious. Everything we needed was available for us. There was something to do everyday, the lads were never bored. I can’t recommend Podumna village highly enough. We all miss dick and co. Very much and wish them the best through these difficult times. We will definitely be back.

Derry girls hen Where do I begin!!! I could write a chapter. I don’t even normally write reviews but I’ve never felt the need to as much as now. before I even arrived I felt like giving dick 10/10 for all his help planning the hen during covid times, he was so helpful. The hen weekend couldn’t have been more perfect. Liz and dick and the whole family are so good! Nothing was a bother. The food was amazing!!! The bbq and chips were one of best I ever had. The band was a highlight for me. It honestly was so much fun! I didn’t want it to end! T here we’re so many lovely touches like a suprise lift for the Bride on a bike and a lovely boat trip! Everyone we met in the village were so lovely too! What a great place! Amazing for a hen but also for families and couples too. Couldn’t recommend it more! I’ll be back in the future! Special shout out to Ben, nessa and grace too! Thank you so much !!!! Love all the Derry girls x

Top Class Holiday Experience We went for a short family vacation to Podumna. What can I say from start to finish it was an excellent experience. Our 2 children could not have been happier playing in the courtyard with other kids in the evening. Dick, Liz and all their staff could not have been more helpful if they tried. They gave great advise in relation to local restaurants, sites to see and general banter and craic. From the pods, to the lawns and grounds, to the toilets and showers it is immaculately clean and well kept. We could not recommend this gem enough to others. We will most certainly be back for this experience again. Top class!

Absolutely amazing - The whole family had an amazing time We spent 2 nights Glamping in Pod Umma and we absolutely loved it. The kids had a great time and we did too. The accommodation, facility and location are all excellent. The family and team that run this facility really makes this place special. They are so friendly, fun and helpful. Thank you Dick, Liz and team. It's also such a central location and so many things were close by. We cycled (bikes available on site), swam, went kayaking, splatball, Go Karting etc. Our only regret is not staying longer. We will definitely go back.

Fantastic fun and great value and a 200,000 welcomes from Dick and Elizbeth The facilities were first class and very clean and tidy. We had the Vintage Lodge and it slept 5 comfortably. Again, clean to a high standard...this is important when everyone you are traveling with is fussy!!! The location is smack bang in the middle of the town so everything is a short walk away. Great restaurant around the corner is O'Meara's -- or you have have a BBQ at Pod Umna...Dick is a dab hand on the grill. You get your own fridge space and their kitchen is full stainless steel catering spec. The children (3 girls 7 7 10y) loved it, they made friends instantly with the other children as they toasted marshmallows by he fire --- 10 out of 10...many thank to the Pod Umna team

Such a great place Got back last night from Podumna and felt the need to leave a prompt review. This place is seriously class and fully deserves a 5 star review. This was our first time "glamping" with our little girl who is two. We regularly go camping so this was a nice change. Our pod was suitable for a family of 4 and had 4 single beds. There are larger and smaller available and all looked lovely. The great thing about the pod is that the beds are fully dressed and the mattresses are comfy. There was a heater but we didn't need to use it. There was plenty of bedding and spare pillows. The facilities are really good, there is a dining room, a kitchen that is fully kitted out, fridge space for each pod, dry storage crates for each pod, plenty of space to eat outdoors and what we liked in particular was that each pod had a picnic bench. The site was gates that are closed which makes it super safe for kids to roam around with some freedom. Showers and toilets were spotless and never busy, even though the site was fully booked. The owners of this place are really what make this place special. They are friendly in a genuine way and are very personable. Dick even remembered our little girls two teddy's names. I have trouble remembering their names myself so god bless his attention to detail. Attention to detail is actually one of the strong points in Podumna, every single thing you could possibly think of needing was catered for, and in a modern but quirky kind of way. Everything seems well thought out and carefully put together. I almost forgot to mention the chickens and rabbit that were close by to the pods. Our daughter loved them, they were so cute. We would love to go back. I'll be spreading the word about how great we think this place is! Thanks Dick and Liz.

Weekend stay Really first class. Dick and Liz are the friendliest, most helpful hosts. They couldn't do enough, and kept the kids happy with the rabbits and hens. Very relaxing and a lovely quiet environment. There were couples, a gang of young women from Mayo, a gang of Brazilians and families all staying when we were there. A great mix. The pods are really cosy; well designed; feel brand new. Dick puts a fire on at night. There's a big kitchen for cooking, fridges, storage, showers, indoor tables for eating at, bike hire, books. Portumna Castle and cafe is a short walk, also the marina, forest trails and a short drive to the Lough Derg swimming spot W9th lifeguard on duty). We'll be back and hopefully book out the whole place for a massive party without the kids lol.
