Creative Retreat

A creative space for artist, writer, musician, or indeed anyone looking for a quiet working place or just time out .
Relax, be yourself, escape the daily grind.


  • Writing table in The Cabin and in each room.
  • Wireless broadband throughout the house and in Writer’s Cabin.

In the Main House,we have two large guest bedrooms both with double and single bed. We offer these as singles also. The rooms have very different styles, each look out on the front garden. You’ll find a desk and seat and comfortable chairs and a kettle to make that much needed cup of tea.  The rooms share a  bathroom situated right between them.

An Tigín: The Writer’s Cabin

A “tiny house”, set in its own garden beside the stream. ~There’s a small wooded area (and the stream) between ~An Tigín and the Main house, so it’s very private.  The cabin is fully self contained. It is semi divided, with separate sleeping area (can be single or double bed) and living are. The living area has a sofa, reading chair and writing table, with French doors. There are full kitchen facilities, fridge, hob, microwave and sink. The shower room is fully tiled, and though it’s small, it’s perfectly formed !


The Rectory bedrooms are inspiring places in which to write, draw, compose or make music.The sitting room with piano can be reserved for use of musicians by prior arrangement. In the Cabin your world is entirely your own with the sound of the stream making background music.

The Gardens

For those elusive but wonderful sunny days, we have a number of different garden spaces with seating areas and tables.   Should you wish to use the barbecue at any time feel very welcome.

In the Evening

If you stay in the Main House and your fancy takes you to staying at home of an evening, our comfortable sitting room with its cosy log burning stove is here for you.  If you haven’t brought your own guitar, fiddle or bodhrán we might just lend you one of ours.

Getting to Town

If you want to experience Westport’s vibrant nightlife we can often offer you a lift into town. Taxis home are easily obtainable and inexpensive and can be organised for you. We are only 3 miles from Westport .


The Cabin is fully self-catering and has its own kitchen facilities.

In the Main House you help yourself to breakfast of cereals or porridge with fruit, homemade bread and cheese or eggs straight from our (usually) accommodating hens. We provide the food, you help yourself.

For other meals you can choose to eat out for meals other than breakfast or have the use of the kitchen to prepare your own food : Please arrange this with .us


Taking a Break

Depending on the purpose and length of their stay, many visitors want to spend some time rambling around the countryside (whether by car or on foot), visiting local attractions, or taking part in some of the many leisure pursuits available in the Westport area. (click amenities). Then again, you might want to stay and work on in an uninterrupted atmosphere. If you’d like a short break in the open air, you could take a breather in the garden or stroll around the tiny graveyard that surrounds the church next door. There are a number of lovely walks on quiet country roads literally starting at our doorstep. If you cycle or drive, the coast is 7km from our door and there’s a beach every few miles and of course the famous Croagh Patrick within 10 minutes drive.
