Many agree that our warmest months with long sunny evenings and lush green foliage, wild flowers and milder weather make summer the most popular time for weddings. As a result many of Ireland’s summer brides to be get the girls together in Spring and enjoy their special weekend of freedom before their joined to their man for ever!
Teapot Lane has been hosting such weekends for almost 6 years as the first ever Glamping spot in Ireland we like to think we have perfected the Hen weekend and offer the best weekends in Ireland. When booking a Glamping weekend early in the season, be aware of the following facts on Glamping before choosing your venue:
Like With Like; find out what the accommodation is and the differences involved.
Tip – Find out if your yurt is insulated and if it has a good stove for warmth will fuel provided? Ask if there are beds in there with bedlinen provided and if the fuel for the stove is included in the cost.
Tip – Bell tents are a cheap alternative to the yurt and are a fraction of the cost to buy and unlike a yurt are not designed for long term use so can and should be much cheaper to stay in that a yurt
Facilities – Ask What communal facilities there are
Once you have established what accommodation is on offer for your Glamping weekend it is time to look at the facilities! Is there sheltered space for the Gang to hang out if the weather aint so good, let’s face it our little Island is no stranger to a drop of rain! Are there kitchen facilities and if so how well equipped are they?? Does the kitchen have all you need? Plates, Cups, glasses, utensils, Tea, Coffee Sugar condiments etc?
Is there entertainment or catering available? – I’m not showing off but Teapot Lane have caterers come cook a delicious buffet BBQ style and we bring in a live DJ to play you tunes so you can dance the Buffet off under the stars (or our cool dining shelter if the weathers no playing ball!)
Is there a Campfire? One of the loveliest things about any Camping/Glamping trip is sitting by the campfire at the end of the day, chatting, swapping stories, sipping a nice vino or a hot chocolate and scoffing toasted marshmallows!
Ask if your Glamping site has a campfire and if fuel is provided for this.
Tip – Find out if the site has gravel pathways or will you be walking through wet grass or mud to get to your accommodation or the loos
Finally Be sure and bring your warm clothes, fleecey Jammy’s, all your favourite food and drinks. Relax and have a laugh and make it a weekend to remember forever ♥
