We are big fans of all things ecotourism, so the opening of the new Hare’s Leap boutique campsite at Rock Farm Slane is welcome music to our ears. Situated in the grounds of Slane Castle and on the banks of the River Boyne, this new initiative comes from a collaboration between Bohemia Tents (who bring us The Salty Dog stage every year at EP) and the ecologically-focused Carina and Alex Mountcharles. Situated in a Designated Natural Heritage site in Meath, with numerous walking trails and Newgrange nearby, this is an ideal location for an outdoorsy weekend. What sets it apart is the comfort and fun of the fabulous boutique camping. Done up cozily with a bit of tongue-in-cheek, it’s perfect for anything from romantic getaways, to parties, to weekends away with your girls. What’s more, Hare’s Leap gives you the added pleasure of the luxury camping experience while protecting and enhancing the local ecology, through the use of rainwater and by maintaining the best habitat possible for the Irish hare. Pampering with a bit of extra soul.

Two nights for two people priced at – 240.
