We organise Tipi, Hammock and Tree Tent camping at our private wilderness site located close to Rathdrum Village in Co. Wicklow. The site is in a woodland forest where scenes from the popular TV series Vikings were filmed and is bordered by the beautiful Avonmore river. An opportunity to experience a true wilderness camping adventure in a tranquil location with its own private entrance and car parking. A place to recharge your batteries and a time to enjoy and create memories that will last forever.
Whether it’s learning some fundamental outdoor skills; taking part in one of our accredited courses; embarking on one of the stunning local hiking routes or simply spending some time around the site with your nearest and dearest, there is something here for everyone! We have themed events throughout the year, such as our Festive Feast in the Woods, Halloween in the Woods, Surf & Turf weekend. It’s all about enjoying our great outdoors! Follow us on Facebook and Instagram for up to date information on events and offers!
Join us for a team building program that will keep your team talking for quite some time! Get outdoors and spend the day in the woods along the banks of the river Avonmore. A beautiful and natural wild environment and a perfect place to unwind. Learn some outdoor skills and have a chance to reconnect with nature. We can create a custom program based on your company’s preferences, that draws out your strengths while challenging them in numerous ways.
Tipi Adventures Ireland is inspired by love for the outdoors. Camping with family and close friends allows everyone an opportunity to wind down and enjoy each others' company with the simpler things in life.
Our Norwegian single pole tipis provide ample space and offer protection from the elements in line with a wild camping experience. We facilitate private gatherings, schools, clubs and corporate groups with the exclusive use of our site and equipment.

The river Avonmore and a small stream meanders through the site and there is a gravel beach for everyone to enjoy. During the evenings and early summer mornings, wild brown trout can be seen feeding on the surface and one could be lucky to witness a herd of wild deer in the woods or crossing the river. Other animals you might also see are pine martens, usually making their way along the water's edge.
The experience our guests take away with them is one of adventure, re-connection with nature, new skills and above all else, a feeling of well being and fulfilment. We like to add an educational aspect to everything we do on site and our Natural Living Skills programmes is a great foundation for those who would like to further their knowledge by doing our accredited courses - Level 2 and Advanced Level 3 Bush-craft Awards.
There is something special about sitting around a fire with those close to you. The dancing flames, crackling and hissing noise from burning wood brings everyone together especially if there is the added aroma of food cooked over hot embers. In the evenings, it is the place to be, toasting marshmallows or simply enjoying the warmth and glow of the fire.
One of the things we love to do in the forest, is to cook over the open fire. With the sounds of the rustling leaves, the flow of the river and birds singing in the background, food always seems to taste so much better. By combining creativity, fresh locally sourced ingredients, an open fire and a whole load of passion, this enables us to offer a unique food experience. A choice of catering options are available to be booked for your stay. We also offer bespoke menus for feasts in the woods suitable for larger groups or private events. Using our roasting boxes, smokers, steamers and Asado cross we cook large cuts of meat the South American way. Food is normally served 'Street Food' style using biodegradable cutlery and packaging. Every Sunday from June we will hold a BBQ Picnic in the Woods. A perfect day out with the family!
Brilliant experience. Very interesting and entertaining. Loads to learn, do and experience. And also, those guys are very passionate about what they are doing. I enjoyed every second! Highly recommend to everyone!
