‘Immerse yourself in a stunning natural environment’
Do you want to experience something truly different? Then Bluebell Lane is the place for you. Nestled at the foot of the majestic Slieve Gullion mountain, within the Ring of Gullion in Northern Ireland. An Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Bluebell Lane is a haven of rest and relaxation.
Why not try one of our woodturning experiences. Stay a few nights with us at our bespoke glamping retreat and explore the myths, legends, history and culture of the area. It's more than a destination, it's the last undiscovered secret of Ireland.
The Wild Beauty of Slieve Gullion
This is a land steeped in myths and legends. Where the Cailleach Béara (Witch) peers out from the Cairn overlooking the Ring of Gullion. It is here where she tricked Fíonn to search the magical lake on top of the mountain for her lost ring, stealing his youth and leaving him with long grey hair,. It's where Sétanta slew the hound of Chulainn and earned his warrior title Cúchulainn, the Hound of Ulster.
Disconnect from the washing machine of life. Meander along Johnny’s Trail, listen to the birdsong and reconnect with nature, discover the pond, our Iron-age roundhouse and the bushcraft area along the way. Let the children busy themselves in our purpose-built playground and enjoy a spin in our tractor barrel ride - The Drumlin Express.

I did a 1 day beginners wood turning workshop at Bluebell Lane last autumn. It was a fabulous experience and I came home with a not too badly turned fruit bowl which continues to take pride of place on our kitchen table!We also stayed in a Shepherd’s hut on site for 2 nights which was fantastic.. What a beautiful place to stay and enjoy the locality.. I couldn’t recommend Bluebell Lane Glamping high enough.. We will definitely be back.. Its also a super place to bring young kids to!
