Glamping at Rock Farm Slane
The luxury Eco Glamping is nestled on a beautiful hillside overlooking Slane Castle, enclosed in a secret grove of parkland trees overlooking meadows and the demesne woodlands on the North bank of the River Boyne. The Glamping boasts quick access to the beautiful Boyne Meadow along the River Boyne and the Boyne Navigation Ramparts Walk below which will take you into Slane or along the river to Navan. The parkland surrounding the boutique campsite is a designated Natural Heritage Area and Special Area of Conservation and includes an interesting bird population (herons, cormorants, egrets) and a thriving population of Irish hares who are often seen leaping across the field on their way to neighbouring pasture or woodland.
If you are planning to stay in a group larger than 6 please contact us for details. We are delighted to create packages for you on request.
The whole Glamping area is available to book for private hire. We also have the Lime House (with 6 en-suite rooms) and the River House (with 5 bedrooms) for whole house hire.

Stayed at Rock farm recently for my husbands birthday. We booked the entire site and invited friends and their children. We had a fantastic weekend and all who stayed complimented the location and the facilities. Some had never camped or glamped before and were blown away – words like “the best weekend of our life”.
My partner, six month-old daughter, and I stayed in Hazel Yurt for two nights as part of a wedding party. The yurt felt very private and was in a beautiful spot. It was lovely to hear the wind, birds, rain etc from outside while being cosy inside.
Rock Farm Rocks
Thanks so much Rock Farm, we had a fab time as part of our annual reunion for Groovefest. The kitchens were spotless and really well equipped. The camp kitchen was an easy social space and we had music and dancing overlooking the hollow with views of the Boyne… it was idyllic.
