Galway Glamping

Last weekend I had the honor and privilege of being chief bridesmaid for my best friend. But as you know one of the duties of a bridesmaid is to organise a kick-ass hen party! So I wanted to do something a little special. Even though my first choice would have been to jet off somewhere special, Budget was the main factor in my decision making this time.

We are at that age where every second person we know is getting married (I’ve been invited to SIX weddings this year!) so I was looking for a location that was cheap and cheerful, but above all fun!

The bride is adventurous and well travelled so I hit the jackpot when I came across Galway glamping, a super cool spot just outside of Tuam. I booked us into their Mongolian Yurts for the night and decided to pay homage to my friend’s travels by organising a full-moon theme!


The Accommodation was so quirky and cool and not at all like camping, complete with proper beds, showers and and fully plumbed toilets. We were also given our very own social area and a cute swing and the option for a campfire.




We opted for the team building style activity and were put through our paces with a blindfolded obstacle course, which was absolutely hilarious! We followed this up with a Yummy BBQ that was organised onsite for us and then got ready for the night ahead.

Of course it wouldn’t be a full-moon party without the essentials, UV paint, Glo sticks and buckets full of booze. We were allowed to bring all of our own food and drink and this helped with the budget a lot.

The owners helped us to organise a bus into Galway city where we danced the night away and got up to all sorts of mischief…..

I would highly recommend Galway glamping for a hen party or a girls night, the staff took excellent care of us and left us to our own devices and most importantly, the bride and her hens had a ball 🙂

Love from the girls x


  1. Thanks Clair for the very kind review of Galway Glamping! Happy to read that you all had a good time. We very much appreciate for taking the time to write about us and hope we see you on site again in the near future.


  2. I've been addicted with the glamping idea, in general. I love your chosen spot and party theme! 🙂 Galway glamping is certainly a right choice. You did a great job as a bridesmaid.


  3. This glamping gave me a new perspective at camping! Who knew camping can be this posh? Whenever I hear someone say camping, uncomfortable sleep and mosquitos are what crosses my mind instantly but glamping seems so much fun! I would love to experience glamping someday.


  4. everything is so pretty! I love the hut by the way I've never seen like that before. Looks like you girls had so much fun. Wanna experience that too!


  5. It's so nice to see you gals enjoying your party! Sure you are an awesome chief bridesmaid. Glad you made your time free for this awesome hen party for your bestfriend.


  6. I've been a bridesmaid thrice already but I have never attended a bridal shower, isn't that weird hahaha.. I think I've been missing out. How come bridal showers are not really a thing here in my country. Maybe I should organize it myself the way you did. Looks like it's a lot of fun.


  7. This is so cool! The place looks comfy and indeed quirky. It's like playing with your friends. Congratulations on the wedding of your friend and to you too for doing a good job in her glamping party 🙂


  8. That looks such a fun party! And I love that you were able to come up with something within the budget. Looks like everyone had fun! I also love those glow in the dark paints!
