About this listing
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.
Basic cooking is possible and the bathroom is close- by in the house. Should you wish a light breakfast or lunch ( 5 euros extra) you are welcome to join me in the kitchen.

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.
How do I describe my experience? One word...serenity. Set in surroundings that truly create a 'one-with-nature' vibe. Therese has created a home away from home, that allowed me to experience the true meaning of peace and quiet. The views surrounding you externally give you that same experience. This is a piece of Ireland I have already put into my plans for my return, I can't imagine a journey without it.
Beautiful house, a wonderful cabin and a fantastic host! Thank you Therese for a lovely stay in a magical place :)
Therese was such a great host! Funny, friendly...couldn't be better! The cabin was clean and cosy. Also the garden and the surroundings! Would defenetly recommend!
This was an absolutely lovely place to stay, we really enjoyed ourselves. Therese was very welcoming and friendly, and helped us find one of our favorite places on our visit. I would definitely recommend staying at this location.
I had a great time staying here. The cabin is even cosier than in the pictures. I walked through the ox mountains and had a really peaceful stay. Just perfect! Theresa is a wonderful host. Full of information of the surrounding area and great to have a chat with over a cup of tea. In fact I'm coming back very soon !
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!
About the Host, Therese
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.
