We may have the perfect solution for you and your family. Dick’s Bike Hire is located on the grounds of Pod Umna, Ireland’s first urban glamping village

To Glamp or not to Glamp…

Whether you’re an experienced ‘Glamper’ or ‘Podder’ or you’re brand new to it, you should also know about one of Ireland’s best-kept secrets: the town of Portumna in South East Galway, with its Castle, Abbey, historic Workhouse and Forest park, the River Shannon and Lough Derg, and a great range of shops, pubs and restaurants. Put them together and you arrive at Pod Umna, a unique Pod village, one of Ireland’s most innovative and creative ‘Glamping’ sites.

The ideal base for your biking break…

Set in Heart of Portumna Town, Co. Galway. Pod Umna Glamping Village offers visitors a very rare and unique experience, all the fun and feel of a woodland setting with the added convenience of a Town central location. If you haven’t experienced it yet, ‘Glamping’ is a great way to go camping. You stay in Pods, Huts or Cabins, not tents. So there’s no canvas. There are no poles or tent pegs, no damp or draughts. Just all the fun of camping, without the hardship. Don’t worry, we also have en-suite rooms in the main building if you are not yet ready to take the glamping plunge.
