A Magical Glamping Experience at the Heart of Ireland’s Ancient East

Glamping Under the Stars is a truly magical place. This award-winning, family owned boutique glampsite offers a warm welcome and a relaxed, friendly atmosphere.  Here, you can toast marshmallows around the campfire, sit out under the night sky with a glass of wine, and let the kids explore the beautiful safe green spaces.

Just ten minutes from the pretty heritage town of Abbeyleix on one side, and the vibrant town of Portlaoise on the other, gorgeously quirky hand-crafted wood lodges sit alongside luxuriously furnished bell tents, setting the scene for a fairytale stay.

Perfect Laois Base

It’s the perfect base for discovering all that Laois has to offer: rolling green hills, enchanting forest walks and waterfalls, inspiring historical sites, (such as The Rock of Dunamase, Timahoe Round Tower and Emo Court), as well as great food, festivals, outdoor activities, and a thriving music, pub & restaurant scene.

In the evening, you can rustle up something delicious on the BBQ, cook dinner in The Glamp House, or just order a takeaway. As night falls, it’s time to gather around the campfire. You can tell a few stories, sing a few songs, or just  gaze at the stars and experience a sense of peace & wonder that is a world away from the everyday.
