Our Reviews

Best stay I've had in Donegal! The pods are clean, comfortable, warm, and close to everything! Right next to Leo's tavern (fantastic food and live music) we were able to see all the sights nearby in Bunbeg and Dunfanaghy (hosts gave us some wonderful tips of places to see). The pods come with a fridge, kettle, microwave which meant we were set up for our three night stay (the plugs with USB ports next to the bed were so handy)! The bed was large enough for myself and my partner to sleep very comfortably and we were able to have a lovely hot shower morning or night! I have stayed in AirBnB's in the area before along with some hotels and this stay was the best by far; I look forward to booking again in the near future. Photo is of our New Year decorations!

WOW ...stayed at this AMAZING glamping park in west Donegal. These pods are just the last word! The location beside Leo's Tavern (home of Clannad and Eyna) is just ideal for visitors and the food here is just exceptional. Tessie's charming and quaint pub is also just across the road and there is plenty of walking trails along the river for those more active! These pods are evidently new, absolutely spotless and situated in a quiet woodland setting in harmony with nature. Also noticeable is just the shear space allocated to each pod - making them private and unobtrusive to each other. This is a hidden gem for anyone looking for a break in Donegal... can't wait to visit again!!

Stayed at Meenaleck Glamping for a girly night away. We had the best night here. The Pods were spacious, extremely clean and had everything you need in them even a coffee machine as I love My ☕️. The host was so friendly and clearly pays attention to detail. We had food and drinks in Leo's traven which is beside the pods. Food was delicious and a great nights crack.I will definitely be back here for another weekend. Would highly recommend 👌

Would highly recommend these pods to everyone! Just stayed at the weekend and really enjoyed. The host has a real good attention to detail with everything finished to a high standard! Beds were very comfortable and pods are more spacious than I thought! Grounds very nice and based in such a nice place so relaxing. We also went to Leo's for our dinner which was absolutely great and enjoyed the music and atmosphere. For anyone wanting a gey away this is a place not to be missed! Will definitely be back again. Thank You again 😊

We had the nicest stay at the Meenaleck Glamping pods. The pods were so cosy, immaculately clean and beautifully furnished. Every little detail was thought off. The perfect get away for our girls weekend. We had a meal in Leo's Tavern which was a very short walk from the pods. The food was delicious with lots of choice. I will definitely be back to stay again. Thank you.
