The cabin is only 40 mins from Knock airport ( Ireland West airport) and is nestled in a beautiful, mature yet private garden.
It is an ideal space for those looking for rest, quiet, peace and easy access to many amenities in Sligo and Mayo in the North West of Ireland. It is located half way between Ballisadare in Sligo and Ballina in Mayo on the slopes of the Ox Montains with stunning views of Queen Maebh’s mountain - Knocknarea and Ben Bulben.
Made entirely of wood, this quaint garden cabin with stove and electric heating offers a retreat space for artists, writers and lovers of the outdoors. It is a beautiful quiet, meditative space where the sound of the stream, birdsong, sheep and cattle grazing and the wind whistling through the surrounding trees are the only sounds that can be heard. It is 10 minutes from the sea where surfing, body boarding and cliff walks abound and there are also many beautiful walks easily accessible.
Sligo town is 30 minutes away and the sacred sites of Carrowmore, Carrowkeel and Heapstown are also within 30 minutes.

You are very welcome to the cabin and it's surrounding and there are no house rules except please respect this space. I am honoured to share this place with many other - than human "inhabitants" who have taught me much about sharing the space and recognising our mutual dependence. Please therefore enjoy this place and inhabit it with loving kindness and respect. Thank you.
Therese and her cabin were fantastic. She is a welcoming host who exudes warmth and hospitality and you can tell that she genuinely cares to get to know her guests. Her house and cabin are utterly charming and we really enjoyed the remote location. The cabin was very comfortable and warm despite the temperamental Irish spring weather. We were very entertained by the lambs frolicking outside in the morning. She even went above and beyond and provided some delicious snacks in the cabin. We highly recommend staying with Therese if you are in the Sligo area or even going out of your way if you are looking for a relaxing time in the countryside and want to see some fascinating sites like Carrowkeel.
Beautiful cabin and wonderful host! It was a bit tricky to find as it's out in the countryside, but when we took a wrong turn, Therese came out to find us and guide us back to the house. She was very warm and welcoming, made us feel right at home and gave us great advice on what to see around Sligo. The cabin itself was lovely, warm and cozy, with an unbeatable view of Knocknarea and the surrounding countryside. Thank you, Therese!
Cosy cabin in lovely garden in a gorgeous country setting - complete with cows just over the fence. It was so relaxing and the quintessential Irish experience. 15 min drive from Ballysadare, which has a great supermarket (Super U). Also atmospheric Beach Bar nearby with friendly locals. Therese was so welcoming and friendly.
Therese's cozy cabin was idyllic. It's a perfect addition to her beautiful home and garden and Therese made us feel very welcome there from the beginning - even when we arrived later than planned and she had an early start the next day. Therese is very warm, hospitable, and easy going. We thoroughly enjoyed our brief stay with her and would recommend her to any other traveller on the AirBnB scene. .
We didn't stay long in her cabin but we really enjoyed our time there. It's calm and cosy. We were warmly welcomed. It was easy to get some help even after we leave the country.
I love my home and love to share this wild, natural space with others. Hence this cabin.
I have lived in Latin America and Spain and love to travel, live simply and keep things to a minimum. I enjoy the outdoors, fun, meeting people, dancing and gardening.
I look forward to welcoming you to Sligo, a land of poets, beauty, myth and lovely people.
