Why Glamping Party Mayo is on my list of places to visit this summer
When I was a kid it was all about the caravans, now it's all about the glamping.
Glamping has become huge in Ireland with many holiday makers choosing it year after year for their staycations during the summer holidays.
I personally love glamping and have been to a few different spots around Ireland and Germany - and I'm always on the lookout for more.
Last year, I joined a Facebook group who regularly post about their favourite glamping spots and one name keeps popping up time and time again; Glamping Party Mayo.
If you've read any of my travel pieces, you'll know that I love the west of Ireland. It's where my husband's family are from and it has some of the most beautiful scenic spots in the country.
I regularly visit Mayo and in particular Achill, so when I spotted everyone talking about this Mayo glampsite I just had to take a little look for myself on their social media.
Glamping Party Mayo located in Crossboyne village is a self-catering accommodation which is ideal for a gals' or small hen party-type holiday.
The site features four glamping pods with each pod able to accommodate up to five people in five single beds.
Their spacious self-catering holiday home is situated right next door and can accommodate 15.
It can also comfortably cater for groups of up to 35 for the exclusive use of their site if you fancy booking it for a birthday or other special event - though this option may not be possible this summer due to Covid.
The glamping pods are usually available to book Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday nights from €100 per night. Right now, only those living in Mayo can avail of the pods, but we're hopeful that a few staycations will be on the cards later this year.
