Open April to October

 

Accommodation

We offer “Cosy Camping” or “Glamping” in our cool canvas Bell Tents and off-grid wooden cabins. Limited Pitches for tents and camper vans. You will wake to the sounds of country life and find peace and quiet in our fairy tale woodland. Take the plunge at the tranquil Querrin shore, only 15 minutes walk away. Or a 20 minute bike ride will take you to Kilkee. A true getaway. 

Yoga/Retreats

Why not try some Yoga or meditation while you are here? Weekly drop-in Yoga classes run in our bright cosy Yoga room with Trea. We host a number of retreats throughout the year. Our Yoga and cookery retreat is in June and again in September along with the ‘Suaimhneas’ Yoga days and weekends. A Yoga class may be the perfect group activity for your escape with friends so let us know and we can arrange a class.

Things to Do

At our retreat space, we offer a selection of experiences that keep you firmly connected to the outdoor environment where you can enjoy all the benefits of nature bathing. Spending time in nature has been proven to enhance wellbeing; physically, mentally and emotionally for young and old. Some events are off-site activities such as Dolphin watching or Horse-riding.

Testimonials

A great family campsite!

We had a fantastic time at the Purecamping site.

Excellent

Great campsite. The bell tent was very nice. Even though the campsite was full when I was there it was still well spaced out and they don’t allow the place to get overcrowded.

Wild and wonderful

What a wonderful campsite. This is our second time back and we love it even more.

Pure magic

Back again to Pure camping. We’d been there two years previous and felt that we needed our fix!

Great campsite for bicycle touring

This is a great campsite and perfect for bike tourists for a few reasons…

Great for novice and experienced campers – wonderful owners and fantastic site

Kevin and Trea are fantastic hosts and can be proud of all their work on this lovely site. There’s such a lovely vibe on the site and you can see everyone enjoying themselves.

Magical campsite!

Camped in the woods amidst native Irish woodland. Woken by beautiful birdsong at dawn, including a cuckoo! Our clearing was next to an ancient ring fort (beware of the fairies!!) and had a small fire pit, for which you can buy wood to burn.

Natural camping experience

Trea and Kevin are lovely hosts and make you feel welcome on this beautiful piece of land. The campground is beautifully located and it almost does not feel like you are on a campground at all.

nice welcoming place

A friend mine told me about this place referring to it as a “hippy campsite” ? , so I decided to stay there on my cycle tour. It’s not actually a place where hippy’s hang out, but it has that kind of vibe I guess ?

This is an opportunity for some quiet time in the nature retreat space of Purecamping.🌿🦋🌿

🧘‍♀️The morning starts with a cup of herbal tea and a welcome to Purecamping . Some nice Yoga Asanas or postures. The postures are taught in a progressive way building stability, strength and mobility taking into account all aspects of your being; physical, energetic, emotional and mental.

Your Asana practice will be followed in the traditional way by pranayama (breathwork), meditation and Yoga Nidra leading you in to the peaceful quiet state of ‘Suaimhneas’ or contented bliss.

After a healthy and wholesome lunch, you’ll have time to experience the Loop Head Labyrinth, setting your intentions for the next few weeks and months 🙏
Cost: €45

The Labyrinth can be walked in many ways. Sometimes, it's quiet and reflective, sometimes it's a little more energetic.
🐶Jasper and Daisy are guarding Danu from Freya... I think....
🐕Lizzie is up on the bank investigating the wild smells.
🐶Freya is able to negotiate the Labyrinth walls like no other. Not recommended for humans, but those light footed creatures dance across and through the circuits.
The light is coming back 🌞

Day 12 of 12: Solid foundations required for rebuilding.

The mammalian and avian residents of the Purecamping woods rely on a diverse and healthy foundation of plants and insects.

If you want to help our threatened wildlife, you need to do little more than do less!

Keep some areas untended; let wild insects and plants thrive, and let Nature lead in healing us and itself.

Our biodiversity crisis, notwithstanding climate pressures, is a crisis that can be potentially resolved within decades (which is a very short space of time) 😁💪🏼.

Nature is resilient, let's work with it!

This particular footage is from the Purecamping woods courtesy of Canola Pictures. 🙂 Thanks Tony!

We hope you've enjoyed the few posts over the holidays. All the best to you all and to nature in 2023!

Day 11 of 12: The Irish Hare, a protected species... Irish style 🤦🏼

A compilation of hare clips (😉) from the Purecamping woods. To my mind a species of the open fields, it seems perfectly adapted to the woodland environment too. Well able to leap too, by day, or by night!

http://www.irishhare.org/

On a more sober note, this protected animal is counter-intuitively considered a game species and can be hunted or captured for coursing under license. Annually hares near us are rounded up from the wild, caged and 'trained' for more than a month, only to be released into a coursing arena to be quarry for two greyhounds, which facilitates betting on which dog might 'turn' the hare first.

A practice defended as being 'traditional', but surrounded by secrecy. Deliberately subjecting an animal to suffering for human entertainment is a tradition that I'm happy to let go... The irony being that the sport was introduced to Ireland by the British army in 1813! How's that for tradition? 🤦🏼

It's not like we don't have greyhound tracks to meet the needs of adherents.

Just because we've always done something a particular way, it doesn't mean that it's right!

No hares were harmed in the production of this piece 😉

Day 10: Defending territory

A dunnock (aka hedge sparrow) and a robin giving a busy blackbird territorial headaches as it defends its patch. Health is all about access to adequate resources. The battle for survival is daily. Data show that our wild neighbours are losing the battle. What are we at?

Enjoy the hustle and bustle, right up to it shooing off a thrush at the end. Simple stuff! 😁

Day 9: A celebration of the pine marten

A pine marten minute to enjoy. We've had only a few clips of the pine marten in the last couple of years. It's always exciting to get a brief view into the mysterious world of the elusive pine marten.
At one time hunted to near extinction, they have been making a slow come back since they were protected in the late 1970's. One of our top predators, a force to be reckoned with for sure :-).
We had a rescued pine marten released in our woods in 2020 under the supervision of the NPWS, but that's another story. These clips don't feature the NPWS pine marten, which reassures us that our woodland provides adequate resources for the pine marten successfully forage. The daytime footage shows a pine marten investigating one of our hens that we posthumously put in the undergrowth with a trail cam documenting its return to nature. You'll note that the pine marten didn't commit. Successful wild animals are rightly suspicious 'free food' and will typically be slow to take offerings without, being desperate, or having checked out the offering thoroughly on a number occasions. This is footage from May 2021, so presumably a time of year when live 'natural' prey is readily available.
