I’d Gladly Move To Donegal Just To Live In This Treehouse (Yep, Another Unique Airbnb)

This is not and ad (however, if you'd like to promote your hotel/Airbnb/B&B, get in touch)

Good God this place looks class. Welcome to The Birdbox – a gorgeous little treehouse in Donegal where you can spend a night or two.

And where you can feel all kinds of jealousy if you, like me, never got to own your own treehouse as a kid.

I lived in a housing estate in Dublin, to be fair.

The Birdbox

This place looks all kiiiiiinds of fancy from the outside.

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

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.

Look at that view. And it’s proximity to Glenveagh makes it a great place to explore the park or the wider Donegal area (check out our guide to the best things to do in Donegal guide if you’re planning a visit).

About the space

The Birdbox is a self contained treehouse that’s suitable for adults only. 

You’ll 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.

The last five metres is accessed by the rope bridge you can see in the photos above.

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.’
