Yes, yes, yes – you can spend a night in a treehouse accommodation in Ireland (and the majority of them are pretty damn reasonable price-wise!).

If you’ve visited this site before, you’ll know that we write a lot about unique places to kip in Ireland (see our where to stay hub if you fancy seeing more!).

However, few things are as unique as a bit of treehouse glamping. Especially if you pick the right spot!

For those of you that are sick of grabbing 40 winks in hotel rooms, the treehouse Airbnbs below should be right up your street.

The best treehouse accommodation Ireland has to offer

In the guide below, you’ll find a clatter of the best treehouse accommodation Ireland has to offer, from boutique spots to rough and ready gaffs.

Now, just keep in mind that you’ll be sleeping in a tree – in some places below, you’ll have limited electricity. In others, you’ll have limited water for flushing the jacks…

But it’s all part of the experience. Right – as usual, I’m starting to ramble. G’wan – dive on in below!

1. The Wexford Hideout

Known as ‘the Hideout’, this treehouse accommodation is set inside a beautiful wooden cabin that’s slightly elevated in the trees.

You’ll find it tucked away on a secluded section of a private home in Wexford, a stone’s throw from many of the county’s top sights.

The structure of the treehouse ensures that you can enjoy the best that the surrounding countryside has to offer – there are plenty of large windows and skylights that offer mighty views.

In fact, this unique little dwelling is so well designed that it appeared on RTÉ’s ‘The Big DIY Challenge’.

You can learn more about the Hideout (including prices) or just have a gawk at some more photos right here

2. The West Cork treehouse (yep, that’s a hot tub)

This next place is arguably some of the most unique accommodation that Ireland has to offer. I’d gladly live in this place.

This treehouse in West Cork boasts luxury and nature combined and has been constructed 100% from sustainable materials, leaving no carbon footprint.

Nestled in the branches of spruce pines, this is a little bit of quirky luxury to base yourself in as you explore the beauty that lays all around you in West Cork.

How the owners describe it make me want to hop in the car and head there now: ‘Through the French doors you walk on to a large deck overlooking the West Cork countryside.

Here you’ll find your own, private two-person Canadian hot-tub, chairs and a table. You’ll be drawn to this area both day and night. It has a magical quality and there’s something wonderful about being up in the trees, at one with nature.’

The icing on the cake? A big aul hot tub. Just LOOK at it! See more of this treehouse (along with prices) right here.

You may have heard us raving about this place before. Welcome to the very swanky Birdbox in County Donegal

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

This Airbnb boasts spectacular views towards Glenveagh that you can admire while you chill in the morning with a coffee, or with something a little stronger as the sun starts to set.

7. The Cork City Treehouse

It’s saying lot that the thing that makes this treehouse accommodation unique isn’t the fact that it’s a treehouse. Oh no!

This is a treehouse that’s slap bang in the middle of Cork City. Those that grab 40 winks here are a grand and handy 5-minute stroll to Cork City centre. Not bad at all!

This Airbnb is a fully insulated treehouse that offers travellers spectacular views out over Cork City.

For those of you that fancy staying reasonably central, you’ll be glad to hear that it’s just 5 minutes from Cork city centre. See more here.

8. Centre Parcs

If you’re looking to escape with the family for a night or two, the treehouses in Centre Parks, although pricey-ish, are nice and unique.

These two-story structures (say that 5 times quickly…) are tucked away in the heart of some lush Longford forest and they boast everything you need for a few nights away.

Those that spend the night here will even have a dedicated treehouse host on hand. Very fancy altogether!

It gets fancier… the treehouse accommodation here comes fitted out with a private outdoor hot tub and a full entertainment system.

9. The Swallow’s Return

You’ll find the Swallow’s Return in Carlingford in County Louth, a stone’s throw from many a fine walk (Slieve Foy is a fine spot for a hike) and the Carlingford Greenway.

The building (is it a building if it’s made from wood?! I feel like that’s a very stupid question to be asking!) is situated seven foot above the ground in some beautiful Sycamore trees.
