Sustainable glamping company, Further Space, has announced the opening of its luxurious new site in one of the west of Ireland’s most picturesque settings.
Launched recently, the Belmullet, Co Mayo site is its tenth location and its first situated on the world-famous Wild Atlantic Way.
The micro-tourism firm is “confident” that the four fully furnished pods will be “popular” with tourists for a coastal family holiday or getaway with friends.
The capital of the Gaeltacht region of Erris on Mayo’s Mullet Peninsula, Belmullet is famed for its golden beaches, rugged sea cliffs and picturesque mountains, which offer “some of the most stunning panoramas you will find anywhere in Ireland”.
The “stylish” and “super-comfortable” pods at Belmullet Glamping are “cleverly” designed to allow space for a sofa area in the day and a murphy-style Queen size folding bed for the evening.
They also include an ensuite shower room, a bunk room, and a kitchenette.
Landowner, James Lavelle, said he is “proud” to be able to share this “beautiful” part of Ireland’s west coast with visitors.
He said: “This is a very special area where people can come and enjoy a beautiful natural place practically untouched by development.”
“It really is one of the jewels in the crown along the Wild Atlantic Way.”
“You can visit some of our local beauty spots, such as the Inishkea Islands, Dun na mBo and walk across the golden sands of Blacksod Bay as you feel the revitalising spray of the Atlantic Ocean on your face.”
He said Belmullet provides the “perfect” balance of solitude, escaping into nature, hiking and water sports activities.
“But, if taking a dip in the bracing turquoise waters of the Atlantic is not your thing, we are also just a short walk to the local bar where you can always enjoy an evening of ‘craic agus ceol’.”
Further Space co-founder, David Maxwell, commented:
“We pride ourselves on locating our pods in unique places which help people reconnect with nature while boosting their health and well-being. Belmullet ticks all the boxes.”
“I know people will love the experience of sitting outside their pod and warming themselves by the fire pit or toasting marshmallows as the sun sets before waking up to the stunning Atlantic sky sunrise.
“Belmullet is one of those places which just takes your breath away, and when we first saw the site, we knew it would be perfect for Further Space.”
“Our spaces preserve cultural and natural heritage in rural areas supporting sustainable micro-tourism and promoting the welfare of the local community,” Maxwell concluded.
Further Space now has ten luxury glamping sites across Northern Ireland, Scotland, and the Republic of Ireland and works in partnership with landowners on sustainable diversification projects.
