Portumna, the Gateway to the West of Ireland

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.
