Covid-19: As per the latest government restrictions we are closed for bookings until 5th March. Unforunately in 2021 we will not be accepting bookings from outside the island of Ireland but we really hope to see you in 2022.


We are in the unique position of being able to offer accommodation where guests can practice very good social distancing. We accommodate a small number of guests each night and our yurts are all very separated and well-spaced from each other in the great outdoors. The Lodge is a communal building but at 400sqm is very large and allows plenty of space to avoid close contact with others. Every room has multiple entry and exit points. The showers in the Lodge are wet rooms, fully contained, so no shared changing-rooms. There is direct access to the loos and showers from outside, without having to pass through common areas. A detailed breakdown of all measures being taken can be read further below.


We wish to offer reassurance that we are doing everything we can to protect our guests while continuing to offer a high quality experience. We also highly recommend downloading the Covid Tracker Ireland App released by the HSE which aims to alert you if you come into contact with someone with Covid19. 


We wish you well in this extraordinary time.

For those who would prefer not to commit to a date but would still like a holiday to look forward to please consider a Gift Voucher. In doing so you are supporting a small business in very challenging times.

Looking forward to seeing you soon!

Clare & Marcus



To ensure the health of all guests - while continuing to offer a high quality experience - we have made some adjustments;


  • We are currently operating at reduced capacity and each yurt is allowed a minimum 24-48hr airing period in between guests

  • There is a 'Self Check-in/out' policy in place to minimise social interaction.

  • All guests are screened prior to arrival to check if they, or people whom they have been in contact with, could have been exposed to Covid-19 in the previous two weeks.

  • We ask all guests to read the HSE information and advice at

  • The Lodge has multiple entry and exit points and there is a one-way system in place through the corridor to loos and showers to facilitate social distancing

  • We have always strived to maintain the highest level of standards with our cleaning. Frequency of cleaning and disinfection of public high traffic areas has been increased, with particular attention to all hard touchable surfaces including door handles, chair arms, light switches, lanterns, kettle, toasters, key fobs, keypads on lockers, etc

  • We ask all guests to wear a mask while in the kitchen and numbers are restricted to 2 guests at a time. The dining table has been removed from the kitchen - all dining is now at well separated tables around the Reciprocal Room.

  • All newspapers, playing cards and boardgames have been removed (sorry!). All local tourism leaflets and pamphlets have also been removed but are available on request.

  • Unnecessary and purely decorative throws and cushions are temporarily removed (a small number of necessary supportive cushions remain).


  • The printed Guest Information folder in each yurt is being emailed instead on the week of arrival.

  • Hot water bottles and slippers have been removed from the yurts (but you are very welcome to bring your own).

  • We ask guests to adhere to the public guidelines to minimise the spread of the virus. Coughing or sneezing should be done into a tissue or arm/elbow.

  • Tissues are provided in all the yurts and Lodge and we ask that they are disposed of in the bins provided.

  • Hand santisers are provided in all yurts and at all entry and exit points in the Lodge. 

  • Please avoid hand-shaking with other guests

  • Guests are permitted to eat in the privacy of their own yurt (but please remove all food/packaging waste on departure).

  • The showers in the Lodge are wet rooms, fully contained, there are no shared changing rooms.

  • If at any stage during their stay a guest feels unwell or shows signs or symptoms we ask they remain in their yurt and alert us straight away.

  • If Government lockdown measures progress to the closure of hotels/tourism accommodation we will arrange a booking postponement or a gift voucher for the value of the booking.

  • This is a dynamic and ever-changing situation which we will be monitoring closely and will be paying heed to all new government guidelines and adapting our policies accordingly, potentially at short notice, so please bear with us.

If ever there was a time to escape, breathe in fresh air in the great outdoors and decompress from the madness,  this is it. We cannot 100% guarantee a safe haven unfortunately but the odds here aren't bad.


See you soon!
