Aislinn O’Donnell and David Kelliher check out the pods at Coach Field Camp on Sunday.

A TRALEE native has started a business in Camp which he hopes will bring something different to the area for tourists.

Coach Field Camp is expected  to boost the number of holidaymakers to the local area, by giving those who like the adventure of a camping holiday but still want comfort, another option.

Tommy Dowling and wife Marcella Herlihy.

“The pods are handcrafted in the age old tradition of the vardo horse drawn carriage which visited this same site many years ago,” he said.

“The difference now is we offer all the home comforts we have grown to expect. Each pod has a full supply of power, free WiFi and tea/coffee making facilities. We  already have a number of booking for the coming weeks which is a great boost to businesses in the area.”
