Back to nature in this tranquil little wooden building, beautiful antique windows reveal a gentle vista of rolling hills and open skies. It's Ireland's answer to glamping, (with a solid roof over your head ;) ) yet the feeling of being out in nature. Cute little camp kitchenette under the verandah.
*We follow Airbnb’s enhanced cleaning protocol, which was developed with expert guidance.

The space
This is a glamping experience, it is a warm, dry, insulated wooden cabin with a comfortable bed and lovely views. The covered verandah has a basic camp kitchenette with a single hob for heating food. Be prepared to wander 30metres, through the garden to the w.c. Umbrella and torch provided. Wifi is available close to our house for checking emails etc, but not in the Cosy Cabin itself. However there is 4G mobile network. Experience the exquisite night-time quiet of the countryside, awaken to the soothing cooing of woodpigeons and the country sounds of rooster 'Jenkins' and his flock of happy hens. Lounge in the garden as Red Kites soar overhead and later look up at the milkyway sketched across the night sky and inhale sweet clean air.
The cabin accommodates 2 people, it has its own solar power supply, its south-east facing big windows provide beautiful views of the surroundings. The bed is a comfortable double and there's a fold out table and chairs and an outdoor picnic table.
We are currently NOT providing breakfast due to Covid 19

A 30 meter stroll through the garden brings you to your private wc/shower room which is housed in a separate cabin.

We have a garden Chimenea and you are welcome to light a fire there. But we ask you to bring your own fuel, a bag of logs or bale of briquettes and fire-lighters.

Guest access
Ideally you need a car to get the most out of your stay here. There is a taxi service and bike hire. Although Rathdrum and shops are only 2.2km away. There are beautiful walks close by in Avondale easily accessible by foot. By car, there's access to river and sea kayaking, trail biking, hiking and rockclimbing in the Wicklow Mountains. Go for a Wild food forage with local wise-woman Geraldine Kavanagh of Wicklow Wild Foods. There are really good quality restaurants nearby in Rathdrum and Laragh and McCreddin Village. Convenient to BrookLodge & Ballybeg wedding venues

Rathdrum, Wicklow, Ireland

"There is not in this wide world a valley so sweet" Stroll from the house to the beautiful Avondale Arboretum with the Avonmore river flowing down from the Wicklow National Park to the Meeting-of-the-Waters made famous by Thomas Moore's song. A twenty minute drive will bring you to the golden sands of Brittas bay or the stunning beauty of Glendalough. Rathdrum nestles in the heart of the Wicklow Mountains and offers direct access to all the beauty "The Garden of Ireland" has to offer.
The Wicklow Way & Lugnaquilla mountain are some of the nearby hiking highlights. The Clara Lara Funpark and Greenane Maze and Farm Museum are great for kids. There's the Hidden Valley Waterpark just minutes away by car.
And not to forget the beautiful Avondale Forest Park just a 15min walk from your cabin, the riverwalk there is simply stunning. Have a look at our other listing so you can book for a whole family.
