This hexagon hut is situated on its own on land that is half orchard half woodland, 5 Km from Westport. It gives a nice view over the natural environment with wild life and low key farming. A few goats and a few hens roam in the adjoining field.

The space

The hexagon shaped cabin has decking on both sides to enjoy morning sun as well as evening sun. On the morning sun side, where the door is, the decking leads to the little bathroom building. The cuckoo is around from the end of April until the end of May. The Owenwee river with salmon and trout runs on about 200 Meter distance. Westport town is on 5 Km distance. Clew bay 2 Km . Nearest beach 7 Km.

There is a nice and safe place to park the car at the bottom of the path leading to the cabin.
Guests are free to roam the one third of an acre around the hut. There are beautiful walks around without having to use the car. One of the few native woods left is only 1,5 Km away.
From 1 April till 1 October I don't take bookings for less than 3 nights

Just for help if needed

The neighbourhood of this place is extremely friendly and there is a big sense of community here.

Public transport, busses and trains, is available in Westport. There is a safe opportunity to cycle to town.

Westport town has great entertainment possibilities. Lots of traditional music, also good blue grass and jazz. Many coffee shops and restaurants and indeed a great choice of very interesting and unique shops.

Cuckoo's Nest is a charming, unusual, little treehouse. We had to shorten our stay due to illness, and the path to the cottage, the peat stove, and the separate bathroom might prove a problem for the elderly or infirm. It is a great spot for the young, the romantic, and the young at heart.

This place is absolutely amazing! We can not say enough good things about our stay here. We spent 4 nights of our honeymoon here. The Cuckoo Wood Hexagon is a charming retreat in a beautiful part of Ireland. We loved that it was only 10 minutes from Westport and yet still felt isolated and unique. Irma was a great host and left us fresh eggs and homemade bread! We would definitely recommend this place and would love to stay here again someday.

My wife and I really enjoyed staying at the Cuckoo Hexagon. Tucked back in the country...quiet, cozy, secluded and beautiful surroundings made this place peaceful and relaxing. The bread, butter and eggs were a really nice, thoughtful addition. As secluded and private as it feels, it's only about a ten minute drive to Westport, which has a couple of really nice pubs with good food, friendly people, and live traditional music. A pair of slippers would be a nice thing to have, as the bathroom is it's own separate building, only about ten feet from the door, but bare feet tend to track in leaves. Irma was also very friendly and helpful with directions and suggestions for places to eat/things to see. We would not hesitate to stay here again, and hope to someday return to Ireland and revisit the Cuckoo Hexagon!

I would recommend the hexagon in Cuckoo Woods for any traveler seeking a quiet place from which to explore a corner of the west coast of Ireland. Irma provided enough necessities to make it feel like home away from home, even Wifi. The soda bread, butter and fresh eggs she had for us were a real treat.

I am a happy person. I am retired, but extremely busy with all the things I love: minding my animals and garden, studying, playing music and painting.
