You’ll find this Airbnb in County Laois, on Hushabye Farm, a family-run business set in the foothills of the beautiful Slieve Blooms. Scroll to find out more!
Welcome to Hushabye Farm
Finished staring at the photo above? Let’s dive in! Known as ‘Lullabye Lodge’, the rental is tucked away in a quiet corner of the working farm.
Those that stay here are encouraged to engage with the friendly Alpacas throughout their visit…
So, you can hop out of bed in the morning, sip a coffee, and then take an alpaca for a walk! Not a bad aul start to the day.
About the Airbnb
if you decide to kip here for a couple of nights you’ll be staying in a beautifully renovated stone cottage on the farm.
The cottage has 2 bedrooms (both have king-sized beds) and sleeps 4 people. Here’s how the owners describe it:
‘It has the romance of an old cottage, combined with a modern comfortable finish that will leave you wanting to stay for longer.’
It’s also the perfect base to explore the Slieve Bloom Mountains.
What previous guests have to say
The reviews for this Airbnb are ridiculously good.
Here’s one from Amelia:
Lovely, warm and modern cottage on an alpaca farm. Hosts are very welcoming and accommodating. Two large bedrooms, equipped kitchen and nice dining and seating area. We were lucky enough to have a go at walking the alpaca. Paul is an expert on alpacas and we felt safe handling the animals with him. Tullamore town is in easy driving distance for all amenities. We took our two-year-old son and he loved it! If you are looking for a relaxing break I would highly recommend it! We intend to return!
And another from Lesley:
‘A gem in the Irish countryside. Truly gorgeous spot that our whole family thoroughly enjoyed. The hosts couldn’t do enough for us and we couldn’t recommend it highly enough.’
