Unique low impact chalet and charming purpose built kitchen and dining space on an old traditional small farm in rural County Wexford. 14 acres with regenerating woodland, stream, pond, woven willow hut, three family dogs and wandering badgers......

The space

We are offering our lovingly built cabins in the tranquil countryside of Ireland's sunny southeast. Our place is an ongoing work. It encompasses a private, small, warm and bright chalet and separate kitchen in the middle of a family run 14 acre smallholding. The chalet is 32 sq metres and has a purpose-built sleeping loft with a double mattress (look closely at the photos and you will see the bed up the ladder in the loft). There is also a double futon sofa, that can be used on the ground floor as a second bed for families or groups. If you have larger groups, please inquire as we have other sleeping options. The space is heated by a woodburning stove, firewood provided! The chalet is often used by the owner as a yoga studio, classes can be requested when you book in. It was built over a two year period and many of the materials were recycled or sourced by the owner through his forestry work. Wifi is available in the chalet, or if your prefer it can be turned off.
A raised deck connects the chalet to a bright, calm kitchen. There is a new five ring gas hob, under counter fridge, beautiful hand made beech counter and with 18m2 of space there is lots of time and space for enjoying the peace of the countryside. We have three family dogs that roam the land and lounge in the sun or hide from the rain!
We provide clean bed linen and towels for all the beds/guests.
There is a private dry compost toilet alongside the chalet and shower use is available in the main house. We are very conscious about keeping the space immaculate, so that the integrity of the building can be appreciated.
The smallholding is very secluded, approx. 3km from the main road and only 7km from artistic Wexford Town. The chalet is tucked into a secluded, private place on the land, near our old apple orchard and wood store.

We have established a new large orchard and a regenerating woodland. Our place is far from the road so it is very safe for children. We have a tree house, swingset and there is a small stream, for relaxing, paddling fun. Beautiful long walks and bike rides from your doorstep. There are also many easy, enjoyable walks to take with children. It is a perfect space for people who desire a quiet place to work, think or meditate. There is an abundance of wild birds and wildlife and often a fox, badger or heron can be spotted.
The main house is located 20 metres from the chalet, down the lane. We are only 20km from Rosslare Europort. 15km to nearest beach, Curracloe. Many other beautiful beaches not much further down the Wexford coast. 2km to a beautiful walk along the Slaney river. There is a small dock along the river, and kayaking/canoeing is a popular activity.

Wexford is the home of the Wexford Opera Festival on the 23rd of October to the 3rd of November. Wexford comes into full swing during the festival, so book your stay early.
There is also a fringe festival at the same time.
Wexford also has a vibrant arts centre for performances and classes.
Wexford is packed with all types of interesting places to visit; from the wild and beautiful Hook Peninsula to the Irish National Heritage Park (just down the road from us). Wexford has many delightful restaurants, and we are quite choosy! from Thai to Italian... Wexford is a slow food town.
the website for Wexford tourism is visitwexford
Loads of activities for children... horseriding, surfing, a great public swimming pool, along with all the great beaches, 10 screen cinema, bowling alley and huge indoor play centre with climbing frames, video arcade, pool tables and cafe. so rain or shine... everyone can be happy.
Wexford is a 3 hour train journey from Dublin, the route is down the east coast, with beautiful views the entire way. Or 2 hours on the bus. Glendalough is 2 hours by public transport, less by car. Cork is 2.5 hours. Kilkenny 45 minutes. Waterford 45 minutes. Both train and bus have a very flexible schedule with many busses and trains returning daily and can leave you in a multitude of places in Dublin or anywhere along the way.
We think our home and area are very special and love to welcome people here.

This is the perfect place if you want to slow down and reconnect with nature. About 15 min drive from Wexford town, it is located on the premises of the family, surrounded by woods and meadows. There are three friendly dogs and the family are lovely hosts!
