Purecamping is a close-to-nature eco-aware site re-connecting guests with nature on the wild west coast of Ireland.
It offers an escape from busy, complicated lives and attempts to give guests some peace and clarity. It has won many awards in its lifetime, including a gold standard Ecotourism Ireland recognition and an Irish Responsible Tourism award for “Best Small Hotel or Accommodation provider in Responsible Tourism”.
Stay in cosy off-grid eco-cabins or pre-erected furnished or un-furnished canvas bell tents. Alternatively, there are several limited pitches, with the option of being close to facilities or closer to nature in a woodland setting.
There is also a 4-bedroom self-catering wooden lodge with electricity.
Mingle in the fully equipped cosy campers’ kitchen and experiment with creating your wood-fired pizzas with friends and family. Enjoy a steamy session in the barrel sauna, topped off with marshmallows and star-gazing by the campfire. It sounds like s’more!
Facilities include a communal shower block, a chill-out cabin, DIY outdoor solar showers, a 10-acre native woodland and a stone labyrinth perfect for meditation and reflection.
On-site eco-technology includes an e-car charge point, reed-bed waste treatment system, solar hot water system with wood fire backup, rain-water harvesting system and solar lighting solutions.
There are also on-site yoga and meditation and e-bikes for hire locally.
