We provide king sized duvets but you may wish to bring extra blankets/hot water bottles – remember you are camping ireland! Please bring your own towels. We have very little lighting around our site in our aim to limit light pollution so you may want to bring torches. Our kitchens are well equipped – just be sure to bring all foodstuffs you need.
