Sustainable glamping company Further Space has announced the opening of a new site Co. Mayo.
The Belmullet site is Further Space’s tenth location and includes four fully furnished pods.
Landowner James Lavelle said, “This is a very special area, where people can come and enjoy a beautiful natural place practically untouched by development. It really is one of the jewels in the crown along the Wild Atlantic Way.

“You can visit some of our local beauty spots, such as the Inishkea Islands [and] Dún na mBó, and walk across the golden sands of Blacksod Bay as you feel the revitalising spray of the Atlantic Ocean on your face.
“Belmullet provides the perfect balance of solitude, escaping into nature, hiking and water sports activities, but if taking a dip in the bracing turquoise waters of the Atlantic isn’t your thing, we are also just a short walk to the local bar, where you can always enjoy an evening of craic agus ceol.”
Further Space co-founder David Maxwell said, “We are delighted to be working with James for our first location in Mayo. Belmullet is one of those places which just takes your breath away, and when we first saw the site, we knew it would be perfect for Further Space.
“We pride ourselves on locating our pods in unique places, which help people reconnect with nature while boosting their health and well-being. Belmullet ticks all the boxes.
“I know people will love the experience of sitting outside their pod and warming themselves by the fire pit or toasting marshmallows as the sun sets before waking up to the stunning Atlantic sky sunrise.
“We go to great lengths to offer ‘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.”
