We had 2 nights in on of the glamping pods. The pod is very basic as described on website but was clean and warm!! Staff friendly. Didn't do activities but looked fun. Toilets and showers very basic, I have seen better on other sites.

Visited Carrowmena Activity centre for an overnight stay in the bell tent and activities the following day. Had a fantastic time and will definitely be returning again soon. The staff are all very friendly and helpful especially Angie who was on duty the evening of our stay and also took the activities the following day.

I have been to carrowmena twice already this month and plan to go back next week. The bell tents are a wonderful addition to the site and are very luxurious. This site although small is full of an array of activities and onsite facilities. Cannot wait to take my family for a great experience.
