= Glamour + Camping!

Glamping at Ballyvolane is not only glamorous but also a luxurious and romantic way to experience the magic of nature without forgoing your creature comforts! Glamp in the garden from May to September.

Glamping Tents & the Pig Ark

Our 4-metre bell tents are designed to accommodate 2 people while our 5-metre tents comfortably sleep 2 adults + 2 children. The Glamping Ark, modelled on the traditional pig ark but a lot comfier(!), also sleeps 2.


Ballyvolane House Glamping is a self catered glamping experience. Guests will have full access a large communal kitchen along with utensils, crockery and basics such as oil, tea, coffee and hot chocolate. There is a beautiful dining terrace for you to enjoy your meals in. We are also always happy to recommend some great restaurants nearby.

On arrival at their tent our ‘Glampers’ will find towels, matches, water, a jar of homemade chocolate cookies, maps of the estate, a torch/head-lamps. Free Wi-Fi is available in the converted barn.
