We stayed at the Old Forge with 2 couples and 2 kids and simply had a fantastic time! The location is stunning, set on a elevated area which gives beautiful views of the surroundings. The tents are great, all with good views, and set in a corner of the garden that provides shelter in case of wind and rain. The...

Myself, two daughters and their six children (aged from 14 down to 4! ) stayed in the Old Forge last August. We had a marvellous time there and were sorry we could not stay for a second night, but we will return! It was the children's first experience of 'Glamping' and what an introduction! Belinda made us so welcome, they...

Words can not describe the beauty of The Old Forge Glamping site. I recently stayed here for one night with some family and friends for my sister's Hen! We had an amazing experience and everything we needed was on site! We had brought food to barbeque for everyone and had access to a large coal barbeque to cook on as...

Stayed with my family (children aged 12,9 & 4) for one night. The yurt was beautifully laid out and was warm, comfortable and welcoming,. The kitchen was very pleasant and well equipped. Another family had lit the stove and there were candles lighting everywhere. We lit the campfire and the children toasted marshmallows while the adults relaxed over a glass...

I visited the old forge with my young family ages 9 , 8 and 6 and to say we loved it was an understatement. What a fantastic and beautiful and tasteful place. Myself and my husband aren't campers so this was perfect for us. The kids loved to see us lighting the campfire and toasting marshmallows. When we were there...

First time Glamping and we loved it. Beautiful picturesque grounds with great facilities. All you need to do bring your food for the barbecue everything else is to hand. My kids loved exploring the grounds and the novelty of sleeping in a Teepee. Lots to locally too so if looking to get away from it all come here, switch the...

We had a magical time, the place is beautiful and my 7 year old was delighted with the presents she found from the fairies. Thanks Belinda. We stayed in a yurt and it was perfect in the evening as we got the weather to sit outside while the kids slept (1 year old and 7 year old).

We had breakfast in the shared kitchen ....had everything you need to cook with. We bbq'd at night, sat by the fire for a sing song and topped it off...

Had the most amazing weekend with friends and horses! Stayed in a bell tent, really comfortable & cosy, stove & hot water bottles to keep us warm, perfect. Enjoyed the campfire/Hendricks Bar at night and the Munny Trail during the day. Cannot say enough about Belinda & Lorcan and their hospitality, nothing was too much for them. It is a...
