Oaklane Glamping

Kenmare, Kerry, Ireland

Céad Míle Fáilte - which means a hundred thousand welcomes - is a popular Irish greeting for arriving guests. The Irish are known for their warm hospitality. Catriona and Declan Brown are no exception. The two opened their Oaklane Glamping in the summer of 2022, fulfilling a long-cherished dream. Ever since they took over Declan's parents' sheep farm, they've been looking for a way to share this idyllic place with other people.

The houses, which are furnished in a minimalistic way and at the same time with every comfort, literally stand on the pasture. From the luxurious double beds you can already enjoy the spectacular view through the glass front in the morning with the first coffee in hand. The small kitchenette is equipped with a sink, refrigerator, coffee maker, kettle and toaster. A basket with some cooking basics and local surprises is ready for guests upon arrival. The en-suite bathroom includes a spacious gas-powered shower and some beauty products.

One of Ireland's prettiest towns - Kenmare - is only a twenty minute walk away and has plenty of good restaurants. Famous walking and touring routes such as the Wild Atlantic Way and the Ring of Kerry are literally on the doorstep. After eventful excursions you can then enjoy the sunset over the bay of Kenmare every evening on the terrace with a fire bowl.

The light in the west of Ireland is said to be magical, and the starry sky certainly is on a clear night. Thanks a million - by the way, they like to say goodbye here.

ArchitectureThe houses were built without a foundation and are only fixed to the ground with a few pillars, so they could be removed at any time without harming nature

FoodA small welcome basket with local products is available for guests upon arrival. Food tours with Karen, who is a friend of the Brown family, can be arranged in and around Kenmare.

EnvironmentGuests are encouraged to help conserve resources such as water to wash towels. Lukewarm water and vinegar are used for cleaning. The waste water is cleaned with a modern sand filter system. More trees are to be planted and the farm is becoming more and more ecological.
