Me and my Family recently stayed at the Butterfly Glamping, we stayed in the most comfortable, amazing Yurt. The weather was a bit windy and rainy, and we still had such an amazing time, we were very welcome and Mary the owner is very nice and easy to chat to and made us feel very welcome. recommended Places to eat, parks for walk and the river in thomastown for the waterbabies like ourselves. There is a lovely Spotless communal kitchen with everything you need, from microwave, oven, kitchen all equiped, even the campfire that logs and all are left out for use. Showers and toilets are very clean and easily accessed at all times. My mam, aunt and daughter stayed there for 2 nights in the Yurt last weekend, and middle of July we will be revisiting again and taken up residence in there beautiful pods. they is great perks to here, it is your perfect get away from your busy life to relaxation at your leisure. shopping kilkenny only 20min drive. Thomastown 1 minute drive, maybe walk, whichever suits each person. Great Views over the mountains too.

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.
