Beautifully located in the magical forests of the Knader, surrounded by deep, clear lakes, mysterious mountains and rugged fields we welcome you at Basecamp! Our little homestead is only 5min out of the town centre and close to plenty local attractions yet you will feel yourself bounded by nothing but the great outdoors...Stay with us and clock out from the hectic daily life, lay back, refresh your spirit and dream about the great plains in our Native American Tipi:)

The space
Covid- 19 Update: in accordance with the government guidelines for re-opening the tourist sector we are delighted and excited to open our doors for you again on the 29.06.2020. So here is a little statement concerning post-corona life at camp:)
Health and Safety: Life at Basecamp Knader happens outdoors and here we have fresh, clean air in abundance:) All our listings are well distanced from each other and have their own space for guests to hang out outside. We will keep a maximum occupancy of 10 people so that there will be enough room to implement social distancing in the cookhouse. Appropriate cleaning measurements will be installed as well as hand sanitizers provided. If you feel that for your own personal safety and comfort you need additional personal protective equipment such as gloves or masks please, fell free to bring it along.
But most of all we would like you to enjoy yourselves, to offer you a break from all the crazy and provide you with the chance to relax, reset, re-boost and re-connect with what 's important and healing:) so change your scenery and come on over!

and now... the usual intro....:)

We are not a hotel, we are not your ordinary B&B, this farm and land is our home and we are very grateful for the privilege to be able to share the beauty and wildness of this wonderful country with friends, guests and travellers from all over the world.

As friends of the "wild west spirit" we provide guests with the opportunity to stay in a Native American Tipi...Our deluxe tipi holds one double and one single bed with plenty of blankets, hot water bottles and loads of room to stand up straight.. both beds have protective covers to keep away the occasional drip.

Sleeping in a tipi surely is a very unique outdoor experience...You fall asleep surrounded by the sounds of nature under the starry sky, let the wind sing you a lullaby and wake up to the chirping of the birds welcoming the morning sun...
Some call it spiritual or magical, some tell stories of wild dreams...
Come and see what it will be like for you here at Basecamp Knader - where Adventure's gone Wild :)

Our place is situated right along the Wild Atlantic Way and thus close to all sorts of attractions and activities...Whether you wanna head off after a hearty breakfast with homemade bread and free-range eggs and go ride the waves of the wild sea or swing yourself on the back of a horse, hike the green mountains or canoe the great lakes, go out for some action and do a bit of whitewater-rafting or cliff-jumping, or take it easy and follow the footsteps of famous Irish writers, poets and revolutionaries exploring the country's mysterious ancient and recent history - we've got you covered:)
we are looking forward to meeting you!

Other things to note
(please note that even though a tipi has a stronger structure than an ordinary tent, you will still be out camping..there is no heating in the tipis, you will be in nature and the weather at the north-west coast is unpredictable so we advise you to bring Irish-weather approved clothes like proper rainjackets, stronger boots and cosy sweatshirts that will keep you warm and dry if you are cold easliy:) we will give you big, warm blankets and hot water bottles but yet it's better to be prepared, right?:)..
if you wanna do a bbq or have a romantic evening we are happy to put on a campfire for you:)
please support us by bringing some extra logs from your walk in the forest or from the local petrol station..
