Hare's Leap is a luxury eco camp with five yurts and two shepherds huts based on the Rock Farm Slane, a 150 acre organic farm and eco tourism project situated on the Slane Castle estate in beautiful parkland opposite Slane Castle. The parkland is a designated Natural Heritage Area and Special Area of Conservation along the banks of the River Boyne.
The tents and camping experience is offered to you in partnership with Ireland's leading tent company Bohemia Tents.
The eco camp is situated on a beautiful hillside overlooking Slane Castle enclosed in a secret grove of parkland trees overlooking meadows and the Slane Castle demesne woods on the north bank of the Boyne. It is also home to a thriving population of Irish hares who are often seen leaping across the field on their way to neighbouring pasture or woodland. Our ethos is to offer you the best luxury camping experience while protecting and enhancing the local ecology.
With that in mind, we will continue to provide the best habitat for Irish hares and introduce more people to them. With regards to the farm itself, we will harvest our own rainwater, process our waste water through natural systems which feed into a landscaped wetland and provide renewable energy for the communal building for the campsite.

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.
