hen we spoke with James Connolly up at Tinakilly House back in May, it was clear that their glamp site would be a perfect fit for Greystones.
Especially given that the bould John Byrne had a grand stretch of land down behind The Beach House.
Luckily, Wicklow planning feel the same way, giving the planting of five bell tents down at the harbour the thumbs up. With one or two conditions.
Oh, and a bill of few thousand quid for the inconvenience of having to chew this one over.
“The conditions are just small details,” says young Byrne, “so, we would hope to start putting these yurts in place around September or October. It’s going to be a great addition to the area, and given that there are so few places to stay around Greystones, I’m sure they’re going to be popular with people far outside the town too…”
The details of the approved WCC planning application 21455 reads: 5 bell tents, each of which are situated upon timber deck bases with new toilets providing individual facilities for each tent, situated in existing shed; new connection to existing public sewer in addition to new site access, dedicated parking at existing carpark and all necessary ancillary works to facilitate this development.
Which sounds like a fab agus groovy way to spend a weekend. You can find out more about Greystones’ glamping site here.
