Beautiful custom-built wooden yurt 4 miles from Athlone town and right beside Lough Ree. Unique, peaceful space, perfect for a quiet retreat.

The space
This building was entirely hand-crafted out of hand-cut wood, and it's a work of art. The photos I've posted don't do it justice.

Aside from being beautiful and one-of-a-kind, it's comfortable. There is a woodstove that keeps it very cozy and warm. There's a very soft double bed, and an extra person can also be accommodated on a fold-out floor-bed. Electricity is supplied, along with basic kitchen facilities (mini-fridge, kettle, toaster, mini-oven and hotplate). There's a lovely eco-toilet cabin for your use right next door.

I don't allow dogs because I have chickens, ducks and cats living here; it's a bit of a mini-farm. You're welcome to hang out with them, they're great fun!

There is also a fire-pit, so you can have a fire and barbeque if you like. (I charge 5 euro for wood if you need it). And Lough Ree is right at your doorstep.

Please be advised, I live in a suburban area and the yurt is in my back garden. So it's not really in a wilderness area, but it is very quiet and private.

During your stay

The yurt is in my back garden, and my house is quite near to it. I am usually available to answer questions, suggest activities and deal with difficulties, but I'm also happy to leave you to your own devices!

There is an outdoor shower cabin, but in winter guests are welcome to use the shower inside the house if it's too cold to shower in the cabin. Washing machine and dryer are also available inside the house.

Athlone town has a lot of great restaurants and pubs. If you'd like to have a few drinks there, I can drop you off and/or collect you for 5 euro per trip, as long as you give me a bit of notice. The taxis can be pretty pricey otherwise.
