Permaculture Place to Stay in Ireland
Bealtaine Cottage is a Permaculture Smallholding in the West of Ireland that has been developed from barren land over the past ten years.
As a way of spreading the permaculture message of hope and regeneration, the gardens and cottage have remained open to visitors from all over the world during this time.
Many visitors have spoken of their wish to be able to stay at Bealtaine Cottage and have invariably had to seek accommodation at local B&B homes.
This is the Lodge, dedicated for anyone who wishes to stay and spend more time than just a visit to Bealtaine Cottage. (Sammy-Bear is an optional bed-mate!)
The Lodge has a comfortable double bed and small single sofa-bed…as well as lots of pull-out floor cushions!It also has its own door to the garden and a sheltered veranda attached. This is the view of the gardens from the door.All four windows in the Lodge open onto sheltered gardens, as you can see.The connecting door to the cottage leads towards the shower-room and compost toilet…yes, this is a permaculture home and all the facilities are based on sustainable principles of living!With over a thousand trees planted here, the gardens boast shelter and a wonderful array of wildlife and birds.
This is indeed a sanctuary in the true sense of the word.With a great little wood-burning stove installed, the Lodge is cosy and warm throughout the seasons.
There are modern, luxurious places to stay all over Ireland…Bealtaine Cottage is different, in that it is part of the landscape and unashamedly connecting into Mother Earth!You can park your car right up alongside the Lodge by this window.
Breakfasts are Vegetarian or Vegan, sitting around a cosy stove in the old-fashioned kitchen.You can find all the details of cost and booking by clicking on the link at the top of the page.
Please note that B&B is no longer available at Bealtaine Cottage…Sorry!
