Glenarm Castle Glamping Site Receives Four-Star Grading From Tourism NI

Further Space at Glenarm Castle in Co. Antrim has become the first glamping pod site to receive guest accommodation certification and a four-star grading from Tourism NI.

"Well-Designed, Comfortable Accommodation"

Tourism NI quality and standards manager Samantha Corr stated, "Over 4.7 million bed spaces were sold across the accommodation sector in Northern Ireland in 2019. Our visitors are looking for high quality accommodation and memorable experiences. Further Space at Glenarm Castle pods are in an ideal position to meet that demand as they offer well-designed, comfortable accommodation in a unique setting where visitors can relax as well as explore all that Northern Ireland has to offer.

"Achieving four stars from their first grading assessment demonstrates the team's dedication and hard work, and their ability to go above and beyond for their guests. The whole team at Further Space and Glenarm Castle Estate have put in an enormous amount of work to achieve this award and I applaud their efforts."


Meanwhile, Further Space CEO Peter Farquharso commented, "We are so proud to have our pod site recognised with this grading as our vision is to go beyond the ordinary and let customers stay somewhere exclusive, cosy and stylish with nature on our doorstep. We work closely with our partners to provide a great experience for our customers, and Glenarm Castle is doing a great job of maintaining luxury levels of service. We have had over 100 amazing reviews already from customers not only loving the pod accommodation, but the overall experience."

"An Important Milestone"

Lady Dunluce of Glenarm Castle added, "Achieving a four-star grading is an important milestone for us as it reflects the pride in our estate, plus the luxury and the comforts we want our customers to experience. We have had many people from the island of Ireland travel and stay with us, but we have also received visitors from all over the world, such as the USA, Canada, Belgium, Netherlands, Australia, Italy, Germany, Spain and France, to name a few who are looking for this level of comfort, but giving them the option of something a little different."
