Beds of Silk

Luxury Glamping on the Shannon Estuary Way

Rewind, Retreat, Relax in County Clare

Silky Saddles Bike Hire is all about taking your time and enjoying what our local area has to offer from the comfort of a silky saddle!
We are all about sustainability and our pre-loved silky smooth push bikes have been carefully sourced from the Netherlands where they know a thing or two about cycling!

The Labasheeda Peninsula, the Shannon Estuary and West Clare have always been popular cycling routes but the roads around here are lightly trafficked compared to busier parts of the county. There's something new discover along each and every by-road with hills and hollows, flat routes and incredible views aplenty.

Book your 'Silky Saddle' online or contact us at the Beds of Silk depot and pick up your rothar!

Tóg go bog é!
Welcome to our part of the World!

Each hut contains a pumped rain shower with constant hot water from our BioGas powered Boiler. A WC and natural stone wash hand basin are contained within the snug bathroom. The main room of the hut has a King sized bed for two with fresh bedsheets, a kitchenette with microwave, kettle, toaster, plug-in induction hob, pots, pans, & cutlery.

Just bring yourself and some food to cook! There is a gas barbecue outside each individual hut also for those rare but beautiful sunny days. Let us know if there is anything else we can provide and we'll do our best to meet your requirements.

The Labasheeda Peninsula has a rich archaeological record, stretching back almost 2,000 years, with several stately homes, ancient churches, holy wells, Napoleonic Era military constructions and more, all within easy reach (and on barely-trafficked roads) by bike, car or on foot from your Beds of Silk base.

The Wild Atlantic Way is a 2,500 km (1,553 miles) tourism trail along Ireland's rugged west coast. It features world-famous sights such as the Cliffs of Moher and Loop Head (both short drives from your Beds of Silk base).

The route has 157 discovery points in total, with more than 1,000 varied attractions and over 2,500 activities. Passing through nine counties and three provinces in total, the WAW stretches from County Donegal's Inishowen Peninsula in north Ulster all the way to Kinsale, County Cork, in Munster, on the Celtic Sea coast. The route is broken down into 5 sections:

  • County Donegal to County Mayo
  • County Mayo to County Clare
  • County Clare to County Kerry
  • County Kerry to County Cork

From your base in Labasheeda, County Clare, you are perfectly situated to take advantage of the incredible scenery on offer on two of the sections: to the south and across the Killimer-Tarbert Ferry lie the splendours of County Kerry, while to the north and west are all of Clare, Galway and Mayo's best natural spectacles.
