New Glamping Accommodation Opens In Co. Wexford

Glamping company Further Space has announced that it has opened a new glamping site in Co. Wexford.

Details
Six glamping pods have been installed on Forth Mountain.

Further Space, which currently has eight luxury glamping sites across Northern Ireland and Scotland, works in partnership with landowners on sustainable diversification projects. The micro-tourism company hand-picked the mountainside location, which is Further Space’s first site in the Republic of Ireland.

The Wexford launch comes as the Northern Ireland company prepares to announce a series of openings throughout the Republic of Ireland and Scotland over the coming year.

Statements By Landowner
Landowner James O’Connor, who owns Forth Mountain Stud, said that he is delighted to be welcoming guests to a part of Co. Wexford that means so much to him.

O’Connor stated, “Little did I know 30 years ago while admiring the views with my uncle Luke that I would be now able to welcome people to Forth Mountain with the help of Further Space.”

Statement By Further Space Co-Founder
Further Space co-founder David Maxwell stated, “We are delighted to be working with James for our first location in Wexford, and indeed for the Republic of Ireland. We go to great lengths to locate our Further Space pods in unique places which encourage people to reconnect with nature while creating greater health and wellbeing for our explorers.

“We pride ourselves on delivering ‘more than’ experiences at all of our Further Space sites and when our explorers choose to stay with us, they are also supporting the development of the local environment and community. Our spaces preserve cultural and natural heritage in rural areas supporting sustainable micro-tourism and promoting the welfare of the local community.

“We are excited to be working with James in a part of the world which obviously means so much to him.

“When you stand outside the pods looking across to Blackstairs Mountain and Mount Leinster, you realise there are few places more peaceful or beautiful while just a short distance away is Wexford town. We know guests will really enjoy their stays on Forth Mountain.”
