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

A spacious 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.

There's a single gas ring, kettle, frying pan, saucepan, plates and cutlery. Simple camp cooking facilities but it's plenty to make a simple meal.

There is a shared camp shower cleverly disguised in a nearby horse trailer and guests also have access to a nearby composting toilet

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

There is no electricity or wifi to the yurt but we can charge things 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, and also you have the option of a tasty homemade one pot meal prepared ready for you to reheat on arrival!

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.

We had a really lovely stay at Claire's place. Claire is a great host. The directions to the yurt were spot on and there was no issue with us adjusting our arrival time so really appreciated that. The yurt is a really wonderful escape from the city. The furnishings and the addition of the wood burning stove make it a cosy place to stay. Really great to meet Claire and hear about her plans for the place and meet all of the animals. All in all, a really lovely experience, highly recommend!

We spent two nights in Claire's yurt and had a great experience. The yurt was decorated beautifully with lots of blankets and duvets so even with the cold nights, we were well wrapped up. Claire is a lovely welcoming host, and was always available to answer any queries we had. I would definitely recommend staying here!

What an experience definitely a must do if you want to get back to basic and forget about the world. So quite and calming and a nice little farm vibe with the animals too. For anyone looking for an adventure this is it

Beautiful scenic stay in Claire's yurt. An experience worth doing. Claire was attentive and incredibly friendly. Ended the few days with an amazing sunset walk with Erin the dog and the 3 goats. Beautiful.

Exceeded expectations! The yurt is spacious, comfortable and thoughtfully decorated - like we were living among fairies! We got beautiful pictures by the pond (right outside the door of the yurt), enjoyed tea and coffee in the morning (would recommend the breakfast offered by Claire - delicious crispy bacon, organic eggs, homemade bread and the best homemade honey you’ve ever tasted!) and had a fabulous walk in the surrounding bogland. Claire was helpful in every way and really friendly and welcoming - good chats to be had! The animals (ducks, goats, cats and Erin the dog) added to the rustic countryside experience too. A fabulous getaway!

Loved it, quite, rugged wilderness just 2h from the chaos & noise of the big city. Would like to come back & try some of that organic honey. Lovely dog, horses, birds & goats around. Best Irish sunset ever!

Claire's yert is a fantastic place to stay. We sadly only had one night but could have stayed longer as there was so much to see. The yert is beautiful and comfy and Clare was helpful at every step of the way. Ballyhaunis seems to be a well worth a visit too. Thank you for your hospitality Clare!
