After working closely with Tipperary County Council and An Garda Siochana to provide an accommodation solution that will work for both the powers-that-be and the concert-goers, the Thurles Racecourse Eco-Glamping Village is now ready to take bookings.
The site has a leave-no-trace eco-policy and all three glampsites will feature pre-pitched tents manned by professional glamping companies, whose main objective is the safety of the glampers and the environment that homes the glampsite.
All amenities will be provided, clean toilet and shower facilities and the fantastic Tipperary Festival Foods Pop-Up, supplying amazing food options for glampers – the fun will begin as soon as you want it to!
The three tiers of Glamping accommodation goes a little something like this:
Site One: Gold Level Glamping in association with Hearthworks.
Choose from 3 sizes of pre-pitched Tipis and 3 sizes of Yurts, catering from 2 to 9 people.
The Gold Glampsite offers the highest level of luxury at the Glamping Village. This site is located closest to the Stadium and Car Park, with ease of access to the hot showers and the Tipperary Festival Foods Pop-Up serving mouth-watering breakfast, lunch and dinner. Each booking will receive Prosecco and Strawberries awaiting on arrival, and acoustic performances by surprise Féile Classical artists during the day!

Site Two: Silver Glampsite in association with Yippee Tents

For those who like to put the glamorous in camping, the Silver Glampsite is luxurious, but a level down from the crème de la crème of the Gold experience.
