In the mood for a romantic retreat? Our charming hut is the idyllic romantic getaway for two! Relax and rejuvenate as you take in the gorgeous natural surroundings.

Lovingly handmade, charming and restful interior. Feather duvet, pillows and double bed. Outside seating area with fire pit/bbq, blankets and cushions. There is an abundance of wood for the fire. Tea/coffee provided. Feast on a luxury breakfast hamper.

This little gem makes for a cosy, colourful and chic staycation.

The space
The Hut is situated in a new damson orchard close to the main house and Hunting Lodge. The only company you have are cows, horses, birdsong and the stars!

The Shepard’s Hut is ideal for couples; it has a retro, cosy feel and is bright and airy with lots of windows that bring the outside in. The hut is kitted out with lovely soft furnishings; plush duvets and luxury bed linens, as well as electric lights; all which remind you that this is luxury glamping not camping!

There is a fire pit which doubles up very nicely as a BBQ, so you can cook a meal while you relax in the countryside. A breakfast hamper that arrives every morning to put your day of relaxation on the right track.

You are welcome to bring one child and put a fold out bed on the floor for a supplement. Outdoor shower and toiltet a short walk from hut.

While on the farm, take a walking tour to brush up on your knowledge on everything from rare-breed cattle and heritage orchards to bee keeping and hedge laying.

Mingling with the resident dogs, horses and rare-breed cattle also comes as standard.

Located about an hour and fifteen minutes from Dublin, far from the well-trodden tourist trails yet a superb hub from which to explore Ireland’s Ancient East

Hi! My name is Margaret and I run my family's certified organic farm; Mount Briscoe in County Offaly just over an hour from Dublin, it is a beautiful Georgian Irish country house. The present house, built in the 1750’s has been lovingly renovated whilst preserving its architectural features. This handsome residence is situated in its own grounds, substantially set back from the road along a beech lined avenue. Mount Briscoe’s is about handmade, homemade, artful and unique. Come, stay & experience warm hospitality, crackling fires, farm life and extensive outbuildings, all giving rise to a unique Irish experience. Your host Margaret is actively engaged in farming, breeds & shows native Irish Moiled cattle plus Irish Draught horses and has a delightful Jack Russel ‘Max’. If you are lucky you will see our resident red squirrels, barn owl, pine marten and we are awash with Irish hares (protected). Margaret loves crafting whether seasonal wild wreaths, willow sculptures, foraging for wild foods or tending her bees. She returned home after a career in the Arts. Margaret is passionate about organic farming, preserving the built heritage at Mount Briscoe, the envirnoment & nature. Woodcraft is my new thing! As I now produce custom homemade live edge cutting boards, servers, platters and kitchen accessories.
