You Can Rent This Very Funky Donegal Treehouse

You Can Rent This Very Funky Donegal Treehouse

Good God this place looks class. Welcome to the very funky ‘Birdbox’ in Donegal!

Tucked away in a quiet corner of Donegal where it looks out towards the magnificent Glenveagh National Park, this place is the perfect base for a week of exploring.

Below, you’ll discover everything you need to know about what is arguably the most unique of the many funky Airbnbs in Donegal.

Welcome to the Birdbox

The Birdbox is a cosy, handcrafted treehouse that’s nestled in the branches of beautiful mature oak and scots pine trees a stone’s-throw from the village of Fintown.

This treehouse boasts stunning views towards Glenveagh National Park that you can soak up while you kick-back in the morning with a coffee, or with something a little stronger as the sun starts to drop.

The view from the Birdbox is something else. And it’s proximity to Glenveagh makes it a great place to explore the park or the wider Donegal area.

Space wise, the treehouse is a self contained unit that’s suitable for adults only. You access it via a 30 metre walk along a stepped wooden walkway through a bank of mature trees, which lead to the decked area of the treehouse.

What the hosts say

‘On entering the space through the double glass doors at the front, you will find a couch on the left and a tiny woodburning stove on the right which heats the treehouse.’ 

This literally gets better and better. They go on to say:

‘A mezzanine above the living space holds a standard double bed and is accessed by a small secured staircase on the right. Although you cannot stand upstairs, most people should be able to kneel comfortably.

Behind the stairs is a kitchenette with a double ring induction hob, smaller than standard oven and grill and a compact 46 litre fridge with a little ice box.’

How much a night will set you back

So, the one catch with this place is that there’s a 2-day minimum stay, which could rule it out for a lot of people.

However, if you’re not bothered by this, it works out reasonable enough (especially compared to some of the more scenic Donegal holiday cottages).

At the time of writing, the price for 2 people sharing for 2 nights in May 2024 is €200, which is pretty decent!
