Hidden in the peaceful countryside of Leitrim, the wooden Eco Cabins are the perfect place to escape the world. Built with eco principles in mind throughout, they are painted with muted natural paints, furnished with antique finds and heated by cosy wood pellet stoves.

All of the Eco Cabins have fully equipped kitchens, and all have amazing views out to the green hills and mountains from a private deck. You can watch the sun go down from the blue deck of Hawthorn, or say hello to the neighbouring horses in Willow and Holly.

There are just three Eco Cabins here at Ard Nahoo, so guests feel they have their own little piece of natural heaven.

Hawthorn eco-cabin

An old favourite, Hawthorn, is an open plan Eco Cabin that sleeps 2 to 3 adults. This gorgeous cosy little cabin is a well-loved feature of Ard Nahoo, with shaggy sheepskin rugs, amazing unique cast iron beds designed by a local artist, and a quaint kitchen area. With two twin beds and a raised, loft style double, a living area and kitchen as well as a deck overlooking the pond. Hawthorn is heated by a cosy wood pellet stove, with comfy armchairs and a supply of books and magazines to wile away your break.

Holly eco-cabin

Holly is the beautiful neighbour to Willow, which has the same room layout. There’s a small playground right next door, and a lovely deck area. Holly has three bedrooms: a master with a king size bed and a single, and two twin rooms, with two single beds built into the wall. It also has a living area, full kitchen and bathroom, and is heated by pellet stove. The private deck features a bbq and chiminea fire.

Willow eco-cabin

Willow is the beautiful neighbour to Holly, which has the same room layout.

With three bedrooms, Willow makes the perfect base for a family break or a group of friends. There’s a large master bedroom upstairs, with a king bed and a single, and two twin rooms downstairs, both with two single beds each.

On the main level, there’s a kitchen area and living space, with a bathroom off to the side. Big windows overlook the nature rock, and there’s a big lawn at the front. A herb garden and little orchard sit just outside, and you’re welcome to help yourself to the berries and apples that grow there.

To do within two minutes

A 30 minute session in the infrared detox box burns between 900 - 2400 calories, and soothes aching muscles by directly heating damaged tissue. Admire Loch Nahoo from the hot tub and feel your cares melt away.
  • Indulge in a holistic massage, designed to relax body and mind.
  • Walk along the Celtic nature trail, which details the native plants, trees and flowers of Ard Nahoo, and their role in Celtic myth, legend, and folklore. Please find the accompanying booklet in this folder.

  • Take in a yoga class (Tuesday evenings for beginners and continuers and Wednesday evenings for pregnancy) or book in for a private session with Noeleen.
