This Donegal Cabin Is The Cosy Hideaway In The Hills That I Need In My Life

All kinds of want.


Hopefully, you’ve been enjoying our recent travel series that’s shining the spotlight on some of the most unique places to stay across our little island.

Over the past couple of weeks, we’ve looked at:

  • Live Like Harry Potter in this Gorgeous Old Castle in Clare from €140 per Night (see it here)
  • A Gooorgeous Treehouse in West Cork With its own Private Hot Tub (check it out here)
  • A hillpod in the hills of Donegal fit for a hobbit king (see it here)
  • Some insanely picturesque glamping in Portsalon (check it out here)

Today, we’re heading to Fintown in Donegal to have a snoop around a lovely little AirBnB that boasts stunning views out towards Glenveagh National Park.

Welcome to your very own (and very stylish) wild Atlantic hideaway

I spend a solid two hours every day (Mon – Fri) sat in traffic while commuting in and out of Dublin City.

It’s mainly during these hours, as I’m sat staring out the window at streams of traffic, that I find my mind drifting to the idea of having a little hideaway somewhere off the grid in Ireland.

Somewhere plonked in the middle of an endless amount of raw, natural beauty.

This place is literally the stuff of my Dublin City traffic dreams.

Known as ‘The Hide’, this cosy AirBnB is a beautifully handcrafted cabin that’s nestled on a slope with stunning views towards Glenveagh National Park. 

For those of you that follow our Donegal itinerary, you easily use this place as a base for one of the nights on the road trip.

The hosts describe the cabin as a cosy, self contained space that’s been designed to make the most of the beautiful mountain views that it’s enveloped by.

Imagine kicking back out here on a warm summers morning with a coffee.

Or in the evening as the sun sets with a beer…

When you enter the cabin, you’ll be greeted by a wood burning stove (pictured above) in the centre of the cabin, an comfy alcove double bed with curtains and blinds to the right and a small bathroom behind the bed.

You can kick-back on a couch that’s up against the centre back wall and soak up the tranquil views through the double doors out onto the deck.

A little bit of wild Atlantic magic.
