Chleire Haven

Cape Clear Island, Skibbereen, Co Cork, Ireland,

At Chleire Haven, Cape Clear Island you have a choice for your glamping holiday accommodation, all exciting in their own right and very different, the choice is yours. You can stay in one of their luxury Yurts or our stylish Bell Tents. Alternatively, you could bring your own tent, but check beforehand as they only have limited pitches available.


Yurts originate from Mongolia and are made from natural fibres & timber. A wooden lattice forms the circular wall, with decorated poles pointing skyward to the centre window at the top. This framework is covered in thick felt and protective materials to make a warm snug, calm environment, perfect for you to relax in. Light your log stove, shut your wooden door on the elements and bring out your guitar or favourite book.

Evenings in a yurt are an experience not easily beaten for cosiness and comfort! With soft furnishings, large scatter cushions, beanbags, real beds and log-burning stove - you can picture it now can?t you?

Star-gazing through the top clear circle of the yurt, sitting out on the decking on balmy evenings or chatting round the stove, the peace and tranquillity of the island will envelope you.

Fresh linen and cosy duvets, with pillows, on a double bed and on the two single beds if required. Your stove ready to light with fuel for your first night. Gas cooker with all cooking utensils, pans, cutlery and crockery. Fire extinguisher and fire blanket for your safety. Solar powered lighting and a cool box for perishables. Solar heated hot water with wet room showers and separate toilets. All the fresh air and open Atlantic views that you could wish for.


Staying in a canvas bell tent with family or friends, is a mixture of old fashioned camping in a beautiful place, with a very modern desire to be more environmentally friendly than just about any other holiday could be.

Waken in your Bell to the sound of waves gently lapping at rocks below you, then cast back the door to the amazing views across the sparkling waters of South Harbour to the hills with their quaint meandering roads and stone built walls, showered with wild flowers and gorse. With the sun seeping through the weave of the canvas, enjoy your leisurely breakfast while you plan your day, or prepare for your own personal pow-wow. Relax, you can always go for a walk to the lighthouse tomorrow...

On entering your yurt or Bell, instead of turning your back on nature outside, you will become closer to it, sheltered in your canvas cocoon.
Chleire Haven is located on Cape Clear Island, a unique, peaceful and adventurous opportunity to leave the mainland and your worries behind.

Being Ireland's most southerly Irish speaking inhabited island, situated some 8 miles off the coast of West
Cork, makes Cape a pretty special place for your holiday.

Take the 45 minute ferry trip from Baltimore and relax amongst the romantic scenery, while absorbing the tranquil beauty of the island, with its rolling hills and shimmering harbours.

The ever changing colours of the hillsides, where wild flowers mix with yellows and purples of gorse and heather, turning to the rich autumn gold of bracken.
