The Hide is located on a quiet lane in rural North Sligo. It is a tiny cosy wood cabin with patio & private outdoor space. It has a separate entrance, completely detached from our house.

We are 20 minutes drive north of Sligo town, 10 minutes to the nearest beach, 15 minutes from the mountains, 5 minutes from Lissadell House with lots of quiet lanes to walk or cycle.

We know travel has an environmental impact, we commit to plant a native Irish tree for every night The Hide is occupied.

The space
The Hide is a timber structure with lots of light. It has a large open plan living, sleeping area with a small kitchenette.

The building is naturally very warm year round. It has a gas boiler, heating radiators and hot water. After a day exploring The Hide is a very comfortable place to relax and unwind.

The living space opens out onto its own patio and seating area. This connects to our overgrown kitchen garden (always a work in progress!) and orchard. The Hide has a bathroom with shower, storage room and a porch, which holds our library for those wet days or quite movements.

The kitchenette has a sink, fridge, microwave, 2 plate induction hob (idea for heating food), kettle, toaster, tea/coffee making facilities and utensils. It is not a full kitchen but ideal for breakfast and light meals.

The Hide has WiFi internet (but no TV). We also have lots of books, jigsaws and puzzles. Ideal if you want time out to enjoy the peace!

We can store sports equipment overnight (e.g. surfboards or bicycles) and there is space to hang out wetsuits and wet outdoor gear.

Guest access
You can self check in. You can say hello if you like. You will have your own private entrance and key.

Other things to note
We live in a rural area with lots of farms around us. The top field, north of The Hide is sometimes tilled with potatoes. Occasionally there is farm machinery present, but mostly the place is very quiet.

Bed linen and towels are provided to get you started.

Hi, I am Declan, a full time Environmental Scientist and part time surfer (and sometimes wish it was the other way around!), living in the North-West of Ireland. When I’m not chasing around with my 11 year old son enjoying Sligo’s outdoor activities, I love working with students on the challenge of a sustainable future. I hope my passion for the ocean and environment comes across in The Hide, my small wooden cabin along The Wild Atlantic Way. I live near The Hide so I am always on hand to assist guests and delighted to answer queries. One of the perks of being a host, you get to meet wonderful travellers and feel like you are travelling, even when you are at home! The Hide is located on the Maugherow peninsula, north of Sligo town, surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean on three sides. I really hope guests enjoy their stay on this wild piece of coast, exploring its many beach and mountains.
