About this listing

Sample the 'off grid' life and get back to nature in your own self contained yurt on a Permaculture smallholding! There's solar lights and a composting toilet nearby but not that much more... just the stars to see at night and the dragonflies to watch on the pond outside the front door and of course a comfy bed too.

We are just 15 minutes from Knock International Airport, an hour from Galway, an hour from Westport and an hour from Sligo.

The space

The space is 6m yurt, simply furnished with a double and a single bed, which can also be arranged as 3 single beds if needed. There is an outside seating area, and also table and chairs inside the yurt too.

We are set just on the edge of a bog in the wild countryside of County Mayo, where you can walk and we also have bicycles that you can borrow to explore the surrounding lanes. Although we are just 3 miles from the train station and town we are deep in the quiet, peaceful countryside.

Guest access

Guests have access to a nearby composting toilet and a shared camp kitchen. There is no indoor shower or bath facilities. Bathing can be described as 'adventurous' and involves a kettle.

There is no electricity or wifi to the yurt but we can also charge your phone for you at the cottage if needed :-)

Other things to note

We have lots of animals; chickens, guinea fowl, ducks, a nanny goat and her kids, a dog and 3 cats... and 2 hives of bees.

We can offer you fresh organic eggs and seasonal greens and berries for your stay. We can also offer you breakfast if you want it!

We are very sorry but as there is a large pond next to the door we don't think the place is suitable for small children, and to maintain the peace and safety of all our animals only quiet, calm, well behaved dogs kept under close control can be accommodated. Please message us before booking if you wish to bring a dog.
