What is the concept?
We offer overnight stays in cosy Gypsy Caravans on our 100 acre farm in County Wicklow.

The concept of a Glamping Caravan is to provide a quirky and fun place to overnight where you can get close to nature and at the same time enjoy a touch of comfort.
Our Glamping Caravans offer a unique retreat where you can relax and immerse yourself in farm life or they can be an ideal base from which to discover all the attractions and activities that County Wicklow has to offer.

How can we book?
Once you know the date for which you want to book, e-mail, phone or write to us and we will hold a glamping caravan booking provisionally for ten days in your name. We can fully confirm your booking on receipt of a 50% payment which can be made through PayPal on our Prices Page or via Bank Transfer (please email for bank details). We expect you to pay the remaining 50% either 2 weeks before you travel or on your arrival in Euro cash. We do not as yet have a facility to accept credit or charge cards on the farm.
Many visitors come to us via Travel Agents and Tour Organisers. These companies feature us in their brochures and invite the public to book a holiday with us through them. Because they ‘package’ the holiday with local, access and foreign transport, with transfers and accommodation combined with an expertise in their trade, they are an excellent choice when intending to book a holiday.
What does it cost?
We offer the glamping caravans on a nightly per caravan rate.
when do we check in / check out?
Our check in time is 4pm (16.00)
Our check out time is 11am
We can be flexible on this and try to adapt to our visitors’ needs, so please just inform us of your plans and we will try to accommodate you.
What should we bring with us?
Active outdoor wear and Jeans and pullovers are the most suitable clothes. Hiking boots or wellies/rubber boots are strongly recommended but strong outdoor sports shoes can be a good alternative. A set of rain gear is also advisable, but with changeable Irish weather don’t forget the t-shirts and shorts either!
We recommend you also bring a torch or head torch, an adapter for your electrical appliances and sun cream.
How to get to the glamping caravan base at Cronybyrne?
While having a car is more practical for our rural location and allows you the freedom to discover the area and shop for supplies etc., it is also possible to travel to us with a taxi transfer or by public transport.
For those planning to travel to us with a rental car, you can find directions and a map on our Find Us page. We offer parking on our farm but please be advised that it is at your own risk.
We have a transfer arrangement with local taxi companies which transport our visitors to and from Dublin, Dublin Airport, Dublin Ferry-port, Dun Laoghaire Ferry-port or any nearby accommodation provider. Visitors booked on a transfer from Dublin Airport should note that they should find their driver in the terminal in which their flight lands (1 or 2). The driver will wait at the opening from the baggage claim/customs in to the arrival hall and will hold a card with your name. In order to book the airport transfer we need the flight number, terminal number and arrival time. The driver will stop on route to allow you to do some food shopping as we have no grocery facilities on the farm.
It is also possible to travel to our farm by public transport, both by bus and train. From Dublin airport or Dublin city you can travel with Bus Eireann bus number 133 to our local village of Ashford. In Ashford you can shop for supplies in the CENTRA shop approx 100m from the bus stop. We can organize a taxi to bring you from Ashford to the farm once we know you have arrived there (you can ask a member of staff in the shop to call us). This taxi run costs approx €25.
Alternatively, you can travel with the Dublin/Rosslare train to the village of Rathdrum. You can shop for provisions in the village and we can organize a taxi to bring you to the farm once we know you have arrived there.
What about telephones, electricity, currency, etc.?
- Ireland has adopted the standard GSM cellular mobile phone system and good coverage is given with the exception of some narrow valleys in the more mountainous parts of County Wicklow. Public telephones are to be found in nearly all villages, guest houses, hotels and pubs.
- The standard for electricity supply in Ireland is 230 Volt 50 Hz. AC as it is elsewhere in Europe – but not on the caravans; they only have butane gas.
- The Euro (€) is legal tender here; 1€ = 100 Cent. Banks are located in Wicklow, Arklow and Rathdrum and are open Monday to Friday for slightly shorter hours than other businesses.
- Pharmacies are also located in these towns as well as in Ashford.
What about insurance?
Please take out a third party holiday insurance and an accident insurance before you leave your own country as we cannot arrange this here.
Sometimes our visitors’ own household insurance cover can be extended by them to cover their holiday risks – visitors must check this themselves as they are responsible for ensuring that they are properly covered.
Our insurance does not cover our visitors against claims against them for any damage they may cause to other persons or their property.
