Glamping is essentially glamorous camping, typically in a beautiful, scenic and remote location. 

It is a style of camping with amenities and services not usually associated with "traditional" camping. It combines escapism and adventure recreation with the luxury of hotel accommodation.

Bright Ridge Studios are one of the few companies providing glamping in Ireland and combine the remote beauty of the Tipperary hills with the comfort of luxurious glamping facilities. Boat building and furniture making are also available to visitors.

Boat Building

Boat building is an ancient craft that is undergoing a renewal in Ireland in recent times. 

Tim Davis is a skilled and experienced boat builder and is now passing those skills on to the next generation.

Tim offers boat building courses on his premises in Tipperary, course participants can choose to travel each day or stay in either his on site glamping facilities or in his farm house self catering accommodation.

Courses and workshops take students on in small groups and this allows for one to one tuition.

Boat and Furniture Sales

Tim is currently taking orders for bespoke furniture and also for custom made boats.

It has become more and more difficult to avoid mass produced products and in many cases the quality that was taken for granted in the past is now very difficult to find.
