#1 of 6 Speciality lodging in Belmullet
Luxury Glamping pods set in a stunning location overlooking Trawmore bay and Belmullet town. Access to Claggan Island is via a causeway/beach and is accessible all year round. We do however have to allow for high tides, we can get cut off for 1-2 hours during spring tides (3 or 4 days per month for 1-2hours each day) The pods have been located to provide our guests with stunning views combined with the peace and tranquillity that only island living can provide. The Pods are set in the heart of a working farm where cows & calves will be grazing only yards away from where you sleep. The farmyard is full of a variety of hens & ducks of all breeds. We also have a thriving rabbit population on Claggan island. The pods are ideal as a romantic getaway or for families with small children. The pods are a 5 minute walk from the beach, where both beaches are safe for children to play and the sea is safe to swim, with no dangerous currents. The pods have been arranged to provide luxury accommodation in a stunning location, they each have a double bed and pull out couch so can easily sleep up to 4 adults or 2 adults and 3 small children. Each pod is also equipped with a toilet and whb, 4 double sockets & an oil heater to keep you cosy in winter. There is a communal kitchen/shower area in a converted barn 70 yards from the pods. There are 2 shower rooms with pumped showers & shaving points. The kitchen/dining area is equipped with dishes, cutlery, pot & pans, BBQ equipment, fridge, 4 ring gas hob, microwave, kettle & toaster. It also has a solid fuel stove for the cold winter months. The barn offers stunning views of Blacksod Bay & Achill Island. We also have a gas BBQ available to rent. We do not cater for large groups or parties, it is all about enjoying the peace and quiet and of course the stunning scenery Erris has to offer.

We have just returned from our trip out to Claggan island and I couldn’t recommend these pods enough, with one pod comfortably sleeping four adults. Lawrence and family go above and beyond to make you feel at home, we had a lovely fire to sit around each evening and the views are just spectacular!

We are just back from a 3 night stay. Absolutely amazing haven, spotless pod which easily slept 2 adults and 2 kids. Lawrence Senior and Junior are never far and always available for a chat or info on the area. We wanted a quiet break during these uncertain times and that is exactly what we got. The beaches have to be seen to be believed, so quiet, we had them to ourselves. There is a shared kitchen and shower area available for the 2 pods which are spotless. Everything marked for each pod so there is no crossover of use with the other visitors. Lovely restaurants with outdoor dining available in nearby Belmullet. We will definitely be back.

We are only back from a 2 nights stay in the luxury pods! They are absolutely gorgeous, despite the weather we made the most of it the views just speak for themselves! The family that run them are so nice and helpful! We will definitely be back and we can't wait. If your looking at somewhere just to relax and unwind i definitely recommend these pods!

We stayed in the Pods as a family of six. We received a very warm welcome from Laurence Senior who had the stove lighting for us in the communal area. We had this to ourselves as we rented both Pods and the facilities for cooking and relaxing were spotlessly clean and the showers and bathrooms were very good with plently of hot water. There was a four ring gas hob, oven, toaster, nespresso machine and fridge with separate freezer for our own personal use so felt really at home and cooked on our first two nights and ate out on our third night. The tranquility of the island was something we all really enjoyed and appreciated and makes it a very unique experience. The beaches are beautiful and we had these to ourselves and swam in the ocean. The animals all around were very special we loved getting to know them. We all agreed that three nights was not enough so we hope to return for a week next year. You will leave feeling refreshed and very well taken care of. The CGS is in close proximity to The Erris Loop trail and Ceathru Thaidhg which are a must when visiting Belmullet. You may not want to leave the little oasis that is Claggan Island and there would be nothing wrong with that either! Looking forward to another stay already. I would highly recommend a stay here it has all you need for a unique and upmarket glamping experience with a truly home from home feel to it. Thanks to Laurence Senior and Junior for a memorable family trip. Wishing you the best in these very difficult times. Best Wishes, Healy-Erkena and Byrnes Family.

I would highly recommend staying here. The pod comfortably slept two adults and three children under nine years old. It was very clean with a good size bathroom with a shower. On site was a well equipped communal kitchen. Lovely location and walking distance from town.
