Leitrim and Sligo have some of the best scenery on the west coast of Ireland and both counties are passed through on the Wild Atlantic Way.
I’ve always wanted to rent a yurt for a night and finally, in July of this year, I finally got to. We were in Co Leitrim – well Co Mayo really…. but decided to go on to Leitrim to check out the yurts for hire at Tea Pot Lane Glamping.
It was about a 20 minute drive from Sligo town on the road to Letterkenny. We stopped at Yeat’s Tavern for a late lunch/early dinner – it never disappoints. The food is always top knotch.
It was a little tricky to find Teapot Lane Glamping but was a real treat when we got there. There were yurts, a vintage caravan, cabins and a tree house. The facilities were clean. The real surprise was the common area with tables, chairs, comfy chairs, rugs and a really well equipped kitchen.
Our yurt was clean and cosy with fairy lights and a heater. Lots of blankets and was quite spacious. The bed was very comfortable too.
We had a wonderfully social evening chatting to other guests over a glass of wine while munching on snacks. Some guests had a bonfire and toasted marshmallows around it, while others just relaxed and chatted. Kids read books and played board games – everyone had a relaxed evening and we all enjoyed it.
All the while, we were just a couple of miles from the coast and the Wild Atlantic Way route. Definitely a place to check out if glamping tickles your fancy!
