If you’re looking for the outdoor feeling of glamping with all the elements of comfort and luxury that you might expect from a hotel then The Wild Rooms at Tara Hill Estate might be the perfect getaway for you. When the lovely people at Tara Hill Estate invited me to try out their Wild Rooms I was ecstatic, I’d seen them all over Instagram and had already added them to my bucket list of places to stay in Ireland. So what did I think? Read on to find out.

A Weekend Break in Wexford – What You Need to Know

About The Wild Rooms and Tara Hill Estate

Sipping prosecco and admiring the view at The Wild Rooms.

The Wild Rooms is an adults only, boutique hotel experience that somehow manages to mix all the best of a cosy wilderness retreat and a modern luxury hotel. It’s the perfect coastal destination for a romantic, relaxing break. It would also be ideal for a soothing solo retreat.

There are three private Wild Rooms (Stargazer, Stormchaser and Sunriser), each set on their own private outdoor area surrounded by flora and with a private stairway entrance. Each Wild Room has a stunning view over the Irish sea and surrounding area thanks to the large viewing window at one end of the room.

Look at that view of the Irish Sea!

One of my favourite features is the outdoor shower. There is, of course, a very spacious private indoor bathroom complete with shower. However, the outdoor waterfall shower is perfect for those warm summer days when you’ve just come back from the beach.

There’s a lovely seating area in the outdoor space where you can pour yourself a glass of something cool and fizzy (prosecco anyone?!), sit, take in the view and relax. There is also a picnic area on the property which, if you decide to walk to, will reward you with more incredible sea views.

The Wild Rooms are secluded and private.

The rooms are fully self-catering with a fridge, hob, kettle and basically everything you need. While we’re talking practical – there is on-site parking, good Wi-Fi and The Wild Rooms are only one hour’s drive from Dublin.

Now you may be worried about them being cold, but they’re incredibly warm and cosy. There is underfloor heating through out the room and you’ll be perfectly toasty at night.

Honestly, I cannot think of a single negative thing to say about The Wild Rooms. 10/10 – would recommend, would stay again!

The beetroot hummus from Hungry Bear tasted even better than it looks.

There are plenty of things to do around Tara Hill. Gorey is just a 10 minute drive from Tara Hill Estate. The town is full of lovely independent shops, cafes and restaurants. I particularly recommend breakfast/brunch at Hungry Bear. I had the roast beetroot hummus and it was divine.

The sense of community at Ballymoney Beach is so lovely to see!

If you’re looking for sun, sand and the sea then Kilbegnet Bay/Kilgorman Beach is an easy walk from The Wild Rooms. The much-loved Ballymoney beach is also just a short 5 minute drive from Tara Hill Estate. There is a lovely sense of community around Ballymoney beach with hooks on the wall to hang your belonging while you go for a sea swim.

You won’t regret walking up to the picnic spot at The Wild Rooms.

If you want to stretch your legs you can hike one of the two trails up Tara Hill. There’s a Blue (more demanding) and a Red trail which both afford stunning views of the sea and countryside.

The lovely people at The Wild Rooms can also organise various activities for you such as wild yoga and a luxury picnic basket.


There are plenty of other outdoor adventures near by such as walks through Courtown woods, Ballymoney woods and Raven Point Wood at Curracloe (one of my favourites).

Got any questions? Feel free to send me a message on Instagram – I’d love to hear from you.
