First Glam­po­tel opens in Red­cross

Wicklow People (West Edition) - - NEWS -

A LARGE crowd gath­ered last Thurs­day at River Val­ley Hol­i­day Park in Red­cross Vil­lage for the of­fi­cial open­ing of Ire­land’s first ‘Glam­po­tel’.

Min­is­ter of State An­drew Doyle was present to cut the rib­bon as guests wan­dered in and out of the var­i­ous themed glamp­ing units.

Min­is­ter of State Doyle praised the com­mit­ment, drive and in­no­va­tion of ev­ery­one in­volved at River Val­ley which has led to the devel­op­ment of a suc­cess­ful camp­site and car­a­van park which now boasts Ire­land’s first lux­ury Glam­po­tel.

‘The ac­com­mo­da­tion which is de­scribed as a cross­over be­tween a bou­tique ho­tel and lux­ury glamp­ing com­prises of 16 units to suit 4 or 5 peo­ple per unit,’ said the Min­is­ter of State.

‘It will open all year round and will hugely com­ple­ment the other of­fer­ings in the vil­lage of Red­cross, where pre­vi­ously there was a short­age of ac­com­mo­da­tion op­tions.

‘Given its prox­im­ity to Brit­tas Bay, Kil­macur­ragh, Wick­low town and Ark­low, as well as the vil­lage of Red­cross it­self, there is plenty to en­ter­tain all year round and I wish the best of suc­cess to the hard­work­ing and en­thu­si­as­tic team at River Val­ley,’ said Min­is­ter Doyle.

Guests will en­joy pri­vate, en­closed out­door bar­be­cue ar­eas, which lead into open plan liv­ing rooms with rus­tic kitchens at­tached. Each unit is burst­ing with wooden char­ac­ter which is em­pha­sised by an ac­tual tree inside reach­ing from floor to ceil­ing. Kids will also in for a treat as each unit has its own theme in­clud­ing bunny rab­bits, bears, fairies and jig­saws.
