Co Down luxury glamping pod firm opens new site in Co Wexford

One of the six new Further Space glamping pods installed on the ancient Forth Mountain in Co Wexford.

LUXURY glamping company Further Space has opened a new site in Co Wexford.

The Co Down firm, which already operates 50 pods in eight sites across the island of Ireland and Scotland, has added six more at Forth Mountain.

The pods, which are manufactured from the company’s 20,000 sq ft facility in Carryduff, opened to the public on Monday.

Operated in partnership with landowner James O’Connor, who owns the well-known Forth Mountain Stud, the pods offer views across the countryside towards Blackstairs Mountain and Mount Leinster.

Further Space co-founder, David Maxwell said: “We are delighted to be working with James for our first location in Wexford, and indeed for the Republic of Ireland."

He said the company will announce a series of new sites throughout the Republic and Scotland over the coming year.

“We go to great lengths to locate our Further Space pods in unique places which encourage people to reconnect with nature while creating greater health and wellbeing for our explorers," he added.

“We pride ourselves on delivering ‘more than’ experiences at all of our Further Space sites and when our explorers choose to stay with us, they are also supporting the development of the local environment and community.

“Our spaces preserve cultural and natural heritage in rural areas supporting sustainable micro-tourism and promoting the welfare of the local community.

“When you stand outside the pods looking across to Blackstairs Mountain and Mount Leinster, you realise there are few places more peaceful or beautiful while just a short distance away is Wexford town. We know guests will really enjoy their stays on Forth Mountain.”
