The Friday night we all slept peacefully although we found that the pallets under the bed shifted and hubby kept falling out ! We didn't take...

This is the 2nd time I've stayed at Carrowmena- both times opting to stay in a glamping 'bell tent'. The kids loved this, and we got a good nights kip, too (win-win!). The bell tent has proper beds inside and slept the 5 of us, comfortably. It comes with a log burner (inside and out!) too, which we really benefitted...

This place was fabulous. The Bell Tents were lovely, really pretty. Aaron helped us all evening as we were a little bit unprepared (no lighter duh!), the children did 3 activities and Aaron and Stevie were great, I can not fault the place and we will definiatley be back. My only niggle is that for 2 adults and 4 children...

Stayed in the Bell Tent on a Saturday night, after having participated in the daily activities of Climbing Wall, Zip Line, Archery and Canoeing. I have to say that the organisation is excellent and all the staff members we dealt with were fantastic ambassadors for the site. I would particularly call out Joe and Stephen who went out of their...

Honestly I prefer a hotel with ensuite but I decided to give Glamping a go because of the kids. Well they are still buzzing and I had a great time too mostly because the kids found so much to do they were hardly near me the whole time. What was really good was out 6 yr old got to do...

Stayed for one night in the bell tent with 3 children. A great family experience - the children were able to play in safety whilst we relaxed beside the log fire! Would highly recommend for a family looking for something different!

We had 2 nights in on of the glamping pods. The pod is very basic as described on website but was clean and warm!! Staff friendly. Didn't do activities but looked fun. Toilets and showers very basic, I have seen better on other sites.
