An Tigín- a small but perfectly formed wooden cabin in the grounds of Old Rectory Retreat.Your writing desk looks through glass doors to its' cottage garden by the stream. It has full kitchen facilities. Living and sleeping areas are semi-separated.


The Tigín was added to Old Rectory Retreat a few years ago to facilitate writers and artists who were looking for their own intimate space in which to work, inspire themselves, relax or use as a base to explore the countryside for whatever reason.

The Tigín is set among trees on the banks of a stream. It's a cottage style wooden cabin with its own garden surrounded by a picket fence. The natural world around is lush and beautiful. You may catch a glimpse of miniature horses or rambling hens in the adjoining field.

The cottage has a surprisingly spacious feel. The interior was lovingly designed and built with great attention to detail, by my amazing sister and her husband in between writing and sewing stints. They know how to make the very most of small spaces. You will have full kitchen facilities and a tiny but beautiful shower room. Sleeping and living areas are partially divided by full length presses. The bed can be single or double sized to suit an individual or couple.

The cabin has been used in the past mainly by writers but also by artists who wanted to sketch or draw and by musicians writing songs. Some people have wanted to stay just to enjoy the peaceful surroundings.

The all important writers desk looks out through large french windows which are south facing or you can take your work outside and listen more closely to the gurgle of the stream.

Accesso ospiti

Old Rectory Retreat is a small family run guest house and writers' retreat in a historic building dating from 1852. The main house is across the stream but well hidden by willow trees. You are welcome to use the sittingroom in the house if you'd like to spread your wings a little. There is an old garden behind the house which we are trying to restore as a vegetable garden. You are welcome to explore- but be careful!

Regole della casa

We assume that guests will treat us with the same respect for ourselves our house and grounds and our needs for privacy that we accord them.

As in all buildings in Ireland, no one smokes inside the Tigín or our house.

The Tigín is small but if you want to bring a dog please talk to me in advance. A lot of dog hairs can create cleaning difficulties but I also appreciate that for some people their dog is an essential companion.

We would ask you to leave the Tigín as you found it. We will of course look after the linen P!

L'alloggio di Róísín è molto confortevole e intimo ma troverete tutto quello che vi serve per un soggiorno estremamente piacevole e rilassante. Immerso nel verde è l'ideale per una fuga dalla città.

The writers cabin more than lived up to our expectations of getting away from it all in search of peace and tranquility. This quirky little cabin has a massive heart brought to life beautifully by the wonderful Roisin who made our stay simply perfect, we were both tempted to stay forever!

We couldn't have been happier at this listing! We would recommend to anyone for a quiet get away. Roisin was always available and helpful and the listing was clean, warm, well stocked and full of personal touches that made it just so perfect.

This is a truly unique place in such a gorgeous setting. It's a bit rustic, but very comfortable, quiet, gorgeous views and who wouldn't love hearing the calming sound of a babbling brook right outside the window! Roisin is an incredibly gracious hostess; very responsive & kind. Her dog Nelly is very sweet and playful. My husband and I stayed for 2 nights and were sad to leave.

I came to Ireland by myself to spend a few days in a relaxing setting. This was the perfect place! Not only is it decorated beautifully, the setting is brilliant and Roisin is the sweetest woman. The cabin is close to town, but I would reccomend renting a car! Her dog Nellie is the cutest pup - meeting you in the morning upon emerging from the cabin. Rufus, her cat, is the sweetest cat I've ever met! Roisin was always quick to help me whenever I needed anything and generously allowed me to stay another night at the last minute. I would truly reccomend the Old Rectory!

If you are planning to stay anywhere near Westport, I highly recommend a stay at Roisin's cabin (sorry, can't put the accents with my keyboard!). The cabin is very charming and has everything you need for your stay. Our neighbours included a lovely dog named Nelly and sweet cat named Rufus (not to mention chickens!). The location is close to Westport so if you want to check out the town it is very easy to do, or you can climb Croagh Patrick (which we did following Roisin's recommendations). You are also close enough to check out Connemara and climb Diamond Hill! During our last night we went to a sweet pub in town, The Porter House, and made a few buddies! As a host, Roisin was super available and quick to respond if any difficulties or questions arose. It was a perfect stay and we will definitely come back!

Super leuk knus huisje voorzien met alles wat je maar nodig hebt. Het is groter dan ik had verwacht en is met zijn tweeen zeker goed te doen als je toch van plan bent er lekker op uit te trekken! Verder kregen we verse eitjes voor het ontbijt en waren er ook allerlei kruiden aanwezig wat erg fijn is als je lekker wilt koken en lagen er 2 verse eitjes voor ons ontbijt! Róísín gaf ons verder een aantal goede tips over leuke dingen in de omgeving die we konden bekijken. Kortom een superfijn huisje in een fantastische omgeving!
