House rules
This place isn’t suitable for children under 12 and the host doesn’t allow pets or smoking.
Meadowsweet Hill Lodge is nestled in the hills of Donegal near Fintown in a secluded woodland area. This is the "Honeymoon Suite" in our Lodge (book one of the 2 rooms or the whole Lodge plus Gypsy Wagon). - Come and enjoy a retreat in your own cozy space with a King size Futon bed and combine this with the flair of a hostel meeting and interacting with other guests in the shared kitchen, lounge and sun room facility.
We want you to feel cozy and welcome in a place immersed in nature.

The space
Please note that the Honeymoon Suite is a loft room with a low ceiling (not everybody can stand up in it) with a narrow staircase leading up to it. Please see the photos.

The Lodge is situated in a very quiet, hidden away and peaceful location. It is tucked into a scenic woodland well off the beaten track. It is part of an organic farm where we grow our own veg and produce homemade herbal teas.
The Lodge itself is entirely self-build, a project of love and passion! We used wood wherever we could and wanted to make sure it is as cosy as it can get. In the common room/kitchen you find a wood burning stove to add to warmth and cosiness and you find all facilities to cook up your own meals. Added is a wrap around sun room so you can be as close to nature as possible even on a rainy day.

Guest access
Our guest's will have access to our farm with places to just sit and relax and to enjoy the beautiful surroundings.

Other things to note
A small fee of 3 EUR applies for the use of the wash-machine and dryer (per load per machine).

Location

Fintown, County Donegal, Ireland

We live about 5km outside the next small village of Fintown and are linked via a mountainous back-road to the picturesque town of Glenties (half an hour drive). We are surrounded by forests, lakes, streams and rivers on the foot of Aghla mountain. We are located right beside a waymarked walking way called "The Gaeltacht/Sli na Finne Way", which makes it a great place for walking and exploring. About half an hours drive from us we have several stunning beaches. The highest cliffs of Europe are nearby as well as Glenveagh National Park.
This is also an area well renowned for traditional music. Some famous fiddlers are living nearby and you will find regular traditional music sessions especially in the Glenties area.

Hello, we are a family of 4: Declan + Marion with our two children. We loved our first experiences as Airbnb hosts with our B&B. We met so many wonderful people and it as was a joy and pleasure to invite each one of them to our home, to get to know them and to make them feel welcome. That's what we want to continue to do. With our first listing (Relax in the hills of Donegal) closed we now offer the following exciting listings: Our "Wonderly Wagon", a lovingly restored original bow-top gypsy caravan and our newly finished Meadowsweet Hill Lodge where you can either choose to book one of the two private rooms or the whole Lodge. We put all our passion into the self-build Lodge connected to our dream to own one day Ireland's smallest hostel. But it had to be so much more than a hostel where people meet and get together, it had to be something special and extra cosy! See for yourself! We have often volunteers from all corners of the world staying with us in our home to help with different projects and in the garden. Our very next project will be to restore an old fishing boat into an accommodation with the theme of a pirate ship! We all love and often play Irish traditional music together. I love and write poetry (one book published in Germany), I'm also a herbalist and a very keen gardener producing herbal tea's. Declan and I visited this area some years ago and fell straight in love with the nature, culture and people here. And now we simply want to share this beautiful experience with you!
