Rental description

Experience a holiday full of outdoor activity at a glamping cabin in west Ireland. Esther and her team have the perfect set up for you.

The glamping cabin is an A frame with a double bed in the loft and living area with a wet bathroom below. Surrounded by trees and birdsong, you can feel that you are immersed in nature while only sleeping a stone’s throw from the comfort of the Eco House.

For those that prefer an even more off the grid experience, the Playground Hut is a quaint one room timber chalet with a double bed and table. The hut has the option of a single bunk bed above the double. There is electricity and campers toilet, shower and cooking facilities are only steps away. The Orchard tipi is glamping at it’s finest with a double bed and candlelight among the apple trees. Again shared camper facilities are right at hand.

Esther and Merel also offer modern eco-guestrooms.

Sustainability criteria

The site’s main building, the Eco House, is finished to the highest energy efficient standards, with eco-foam insulation, low energy lighting and low flow toilets, showers and sinks. Wastewater is treated on site in a natural puraflo peat moss treatment system. Guests will find re-useable drinking bottles in their room, souvenirs to take home to discourage plastic water bottle use.

The restaurant is one of only 2 in all of Ireland to have earned organic certification. Two acres of ground is also certified organic garden – all of the harvest is used in the restaurant. From April to October, every Friday night is pizza night, where the clay oven is fired up and guests make their own delicious organic pizza. Afterwards, homemade breads are baked in the oven, and most weddings feature whole organic salmon baked in the clay oven. And Nothing goes to waste here, with food scraps contributing to Eileen the pot bellied pigs diet or the compost heap, where horse manure is mixed in to fertilise the grazing fields and gardens. Broken tiles become artistic mosaic tables, fabric scraps are sewn together and filled to make draft blocks for doors, old furniture is lovingly restored.

Rainwater is harvested for use in the garden and stables and laundry done on site is air dried. The centre believes in a chemical free environment and therefore provides Irish organic toiletries for guests and only uses eco-friendly cleaning products. No chemicals are used on the land.
The centre is proud to support CELT (the Centre for Environmental Living and Teaching). This organization holds 2 weekends of traditional skills workshops each year hosted by the centre.

Set on 35 acres of rolling farmland, the center is an escape to the tranquility and beauty of the natural world. With warm natural light, a spacious interior and lots of curves, the Eco House and Organic Kitchen is a stunning retreat in this area. The adjacent 2,000 acres of state forestry is a mix of plantation forest, native forest, river zones, and stone remains from villages of long ago. The centre has marked 4 self-guided trails that bring you to unique parts of the forest including rivers, native woodlands, and celtic ruins. The land has an abundance of deer, birds, endangered red squirrel, pine martin, fox and more and the centre has an area of special conservation for the hen harrier.

Nearby, the village of Ballinakill is home to the Burke mansion known as Marble Hill House. An excellent example of the aftermath of English rule and conflict, this ruin has a colourful history as well as standing remains of the main house, stables, church, courtyard and ice house. Travel a bit further to Portumna and Portumna Castle and Gardens on Lough Derg makes for a lovely day out. While you are there the Portumna Workhouse is worth a visit as the only remaining example of these famine time shelters, and the fishing on the lake is very good.

The city of Galway is a highlight with its cobblestone shopping street, numerous pubs, and proximity to the sea. From Galway head south for the infamous Cliffs of Moher, or north to reach the wild and scenic Connemara landscape.
