About Group/Hen Parties

Are you organising a hen party weekend, family group get together or corporate team building event? We can help!  You can book out the site which can accommodate up to 24 people in our tents and Pods. Our site is ideal for groups with a communal kitchen, BBQ and campfire area.

Ideas for the alternative hen or group get together and available close to the site, include active pursuits like canoeing, forest camps or zip lining. For the foodie hen, we can organise chocolate making workshops, afternoon tea, wine tasting/cocktail making or a foodie tour of the area.  For the crafty hen, Thomastown has a range of craftspeople who can provide jewellery making, pottery, still life drawing and making flower crowns. Yoga is also available for the chilled out Hen. There are also options nearby for a farm experience.

I had a fabulous time at Butterfly Glamping. The facilities were very good and the scenery was amazing. Definitely going to stay there with the family again.

Took my 3 grandkids to Butterfly Valley for a short break before going back to school. We stayed in the caravan so it was a “half way house” between camping and caravaning! Caravan was spacious and clean – there was no bathroom in it but there was a kettle, toaster and fridge so we had breakfast out on our own deck. Lots to do in the area and we particularly liked the swimming in the river, forest walk to the Nore and Discovery Park in Castlecomer. Will definitely stay here again.

Just back from staying 2 nights in the vintage caravan – it was fab, place was spotless . We all thoroughly enjoyed it. We would have happily stayed longer.
