Dog Policy at Purecamping

We think that we are dog friendly, but we have some restrictions. Over the years, we’ve tried everything from doggie tents within tents, but experience has shown it to be difficult to manage well if folks are not in their own tent.

Over the years we’ve tried to accommodate dogs and puppies with varying levels of success. We’ve had mixed experiences. For example, at the extreme end of things, we have had one of our cats mauled and killed. Not the dog’s fault, just its owner allowing a child to be in control of the him πŸ™

So, we still welcome dogs, but not currently in our furnished bell tents or cabins (with the exception of the Holly open plan cabin), as we’ve had problems with removing every doggie hair and doggie trace in the past. The problem arises with subsequent guests being allergic to animals. πŸ™

As an alternatively, we have a local dog-minding service, where your dog can stay with Sandy at night (doggy B&B) and be with you and yours during the day. Contact Sandy at 089 438 1247. Sandy is based in Doonaha, which is about 5km from us. Sandy offers day care, full board, and doggy B&B. Sandy is on FB at: https://www.facebook.com/Sandys-Dog-Walking-Pet-Care-Services-1056594101150227/

When on site (even the woodland), as we have a responsibility to our own dogs, cats, hens, and donkeys and we just ask that dogs be on leads and that any deposits be moved off the paths into the copious amounts of bushes that we have… We find this preferable to wrapping in plastic bags and sending to landfill…

I hope that you understand our current policy. It’s not that we haven’t tried… We’d bought doggie cages so that pups could sleep in our tents at night, but inevitably soft furnishings are irresistible to all dogs and it’s difficult for guests to 100% police the situation.

A Birds-eye view. A birds-eye view over our wild camping site. We share the space with nature. Nature get's the most space, which is only right in a biodiversity crisis πŸŒΏπŸπŸ¦‹πŸŒΏ.

Lizzy, a favourite amongst many of our guests. Gentle soul giving unofficial therapy to those needing some quiet space. She's getting old now and getting white around the face, like ourselves.

Her mother is an Irish Red Setter and her father is unknown.
We love her.

The making of 'Pure Stuff' cider. 🍏 Pure Stuff 🍏 came from the Purecamping orchard in the haggart by way of the few apples that the crows chose to share with us.

It's a brew that takes some effort so it doesn't happen every year. Thanks to Tony for being the catalyst in 2020. We had to have at least one good story this year!
To be enjoyed at your ease and wait for a sunny afternoon if you're able 😎
