Willowbrook Glamping And Hideaways is a family friendly camping and glamping site on 21 acres of pristine landscape between the towns of Ballaghaderreen and Castlerea, Co. Roscommon in Ireland’s hidden heartlands. The site features a small man-made lake and banks onto the river lung along it’s southern boundary. No permit is required to fish on the river. Kayaking tours on the river are available and run by local operator Pmacs kayaks (booking essential). Willowbrook is a quiet and peaceful site with lots of open space, interesting features and an artistic and creative theme. Ideal for couples or young families who wish to spend some time together in nature. We are not a party site and have a very strictly enforced midnight curfew.
Accommodation includes 3 fully insulated and cladded Mongolian yurts, each with its own large covered over outdoor deck, and one of which has a private wood fired hot tub. A converted farm building and static unit make up the remaining accommodation. Both powered and unpowered camping pitches for tents, caravans, campervans and motorhomes are also available on site.
Site facilities include a well equipped campers kitchen, a toilet and shower block, and a toilet emptying facility all of which are free of charge for guests. There is also a wood fired pizza oven on site and pizza packs are available on site for guests who would like to prepare and cook their own pizzas.
The Willowbrook natural healing clinic is based on site and offers various massage and acupuncture treatments as well as a regular weekly tai chi class.
For the kiddies, there is a weekly art class on a Saturday, a faerie garden, a mud kitchen, a faerie door trail around the site, an orienteering course with 2 levels of difficulty, and lots of space to let the imagination run wild in nature.
The site also has a small events centre which is the venue for various events throughout the year such as a creative writing retreat, a board games retreat, teenagers drama camp, childrens arts & crafts summer camp, etc. The venue is also available for group bookings who would like to book a class in tai chi, yoga, meditation & mindfulness, arts and crafts, jewellery making, drumming and percussion and more.
