Your glamping trip is fast approaching, and it’s time to get packed and organised. So we’ve put together this list of what to wear glamping to help you pack everything you need for a comfortable but stylish glamping holiday with us!

After all, glamping is glamorous camping!

Your glamping outfits will depend on the weather, and the activities you have planned, which will help determine what kind of clothing to pack.

If you have spent any amount of time in Ireland, you will know the weather can sometimes be a little unpredictable. But we all know Irish weather is what makes Ireland so beautiful, green and rugged! So worry not; as long as you are prepared, you can enjoy the outdoors come rain or shine.

To make sure you are prepared, it’s a good idea to keep track of the weather forecast coming up to your stay. You can keep an eye on the 10-day forecast via this app and set the location to “Thomastown, County Kilkenny”. This will help you plan activities and what to pack for your glamping trip.

We’ve taken all weather conditions into account for this post. So whether you are chilling out, or have lots of activities planned, use our what to wear glamping checklist to make sure you’ve packed everything you need!

What to Wear Glamping: Essentials

When packing clothes to wear glamping, consider items that will work well with each other to prevent overpacking. Adding accessories can help change things up, and layering is best. So pack lots of T-shirts, chunky cardigans, or sweaters.

To give your glamping wardrobe the classic boho vibe, maxi dresses work well with both pumps or boots in mid-summer.

Remember to take into consideration any activities you might have planned or if you have a romantic dinner date in the evening time. Be prepared for cooler evenings with woollen jumpers or fleeces for sitting around the campfire. You can also pack a jacket that will work well with every outfit if you want to dress things up a little.

We recommend packing these essentials to wear on your glamping trip so you’re covered no matter the weather.

  • Sunhat
  • Sunglasses
  • Comfortable footwear
  • Raincoat
  • Baselayers
  • Underwear
  • T-shirts
  • Long sleeve tops
  • Jumpers or a fleece
  • Comfortable trousers
  • Comfortable shorts
  • Woolly hat
  • Socks
  • Backpack or a bum bag

What to Wear Glamping: Footwear

Your glamping footwear is a really important aspect to consider; leave those stilettos at home!  You can still be stylish when glamping, but you need to be comfortable and unrestricted by your shoes.

You will want to make the most of the great outdoors when glamping, so it is essential to pack comfortable walking shoes. You’ll also want to ensure you pack sturdy footwear that is suitable for all terrains so you can explore the local area.  Make sure you break those hiking boots in well before your trip, so you don’t spoil your holiday with sore feet!

If heavy rain is expected, you should also consider packing wellies. Hunters are my absolute fave for a “glam” glamping vibe!

A pretty and practical pair of sandals or sneakers will work well both day and night-time and look perfect for a dinner date too.

You’ll also find having a slip-on pair of shoes comes in handy for walks around the glamping site and a quick night-time trip to the bathroom. Love or hate them, Crocs are ideal for this, but any slip-on shoe will do!

And make sure you pack extra socks in case you manage to get your feet wet whilst out exploring. There’s nothing worse than soggy socks and wet feet!

  • Wellingtons
  • Hiking shoes or boots
  • Walking shoes or trainers
  • Flat sandals or sneakers
  • Slip-on shoes
  • Extra socks

At Legan Castle Farmhouse, we want you to have a comfortable night’s sleep on your glamping stay with us. Our comfy beds with duck-down duvets will help keep you warm and cosy throughout the night, but it’s important to pack nightwear that is both warm and comfortable for cooler nights. You might even consider wearing an extra base layer, long-legged pyjamas and a warm pair of socks to keep extra snug.

If you are a light sleeper, you may also want to pack an eye mask and earplugs to avoid early wake-ups when the sunrises and the birds start chirping.

  • Baselayer
  • Long-legged pyjamas
  • Warm woolly socks
  • Eye mask
  • Earplugs

What to Wear Glamping: Activities

If you’d like to take part in activities like kayaking on the river with Pure Adventure, or you’re into wild water swimming and fancy a dip in the Thomastown Weir pool, you’ll need to make sure you pack swimwear to avoid a mad dash to the shops on your trip.

This applies to lots of different activities you might do in Kilkenny while glamping with us. For example, you’ll want to ensure you’ve got stretchy trousers or leggings for things horse-riding, walking, hiking or cycling.

You can check out our guide on things to do in Kilkenny to get an idea of what’s available and inspire your glamping wardrobe, or pack the clothing below so you’re ready for anything you’d like to do!

  • Swimwear
  • Stretchy pants or leggings
  • Raincoat or shell jacket
  • Fleece
  • Bum bag or backpack
  • Water bottle

Glamping Clothes for Children

Just as adults need to consider practical and durable clothing when glamping, you’ll want to ensure your children are comfortable and able to enjoy exploring the outdoors.

For glamping clothes for children, pack items that are easy to layer, like t-shirts, long-sleeve tops, sweaters and fleece jumpers or jackets. You’ll also want to pack them an extra warm layer for sitting out at night toasting marshmallows!

Be prepared and don’t be fooled by the Irish weather. Even on duller days, there is a risk of sun damage, so it’s essential to remember items like, a hat, full-factor sunscreen and sunglasses. For warmer summer days, pack fuller coverage swimwear that will protect children against UV rays.

Ensure you’ve packed all of these to cover your bases.

  • Sunhat
  • Sunglasses
  • Swimwear with UV protection
  • Suncream

Think denim jackets, floaty, floral print dresses and cowboy boots with a heavy knit cardigan to throw over for when the sun goes down for a chic and comfortable look. Casual dungarees, a t-shirt and pumps also make a cute outfit! You can accessorise your looks with jewellery and a hat, and bring a large shopper bag to throw everything into when you’re out exploring.
