Did you know that all of our cabins come with a typical Irish tree name? 🌳 You can, for example, enjoy a getaway in cabin Hazel, cabin Oak or cabin Ash. We carefully chose these names to let our cabins fully blend with the local nature they're in. Be sure to find lots of Hazels nearby when staying in cabin Hazel, or to find some beautiful big Oaks when spending the weekend in cabin Oak. Curious what your cabin's name will be? ⁠

Last night, time stood still for a moment. ⏰ The sun seemed to wake up earlier, while the streets were still quiet and asleep. And every night from now on, the world will go to sleep a little bit earlier. The days are getting shorter, the nights longer.⁠

Winter time, what a wonderful time to catch your breath, reflect and just be 'quiet'. Silence can be a powerful medicine against the noise and bustle of our modern world. When you start to embrace calmness, you hear yourself again and feel connected to the here and now. 🤍⁠

When the night has come ... we like to go out to watch the magical twilight and get all cosy in our cabin afterwards ✨

Ending this rainy Monday with nothing else but a comfy bed, a good book and a wonderful view. 🍃 Did you know that it is entirely possible to go on a getaway during the week too? Treat yourself with a break from busy life and unwind in one of our cabins.⁠

Slowing down doesn’t mean escaping from your responsibilities or tempering your ambitions. It's simply an invite to be more mindful: to take your time and energy to do things with care, attention and focus. Like enjoying the repetitive act of making coffee in the morning. ☕️⁠

The little things. It’s really all about the little things. Life’s simplest pleasures. That what seems so obvious, but is actually extremely magical. You can hardly imagine the feeling of peace and bliss when you start noticing and embracing those things. You just have to do it. You just have to see it. Spend two nights in our Slow Cabin and be enchanted by the magic of the moment. ✨ Bookings are open via the link in bio!

What our guests are saying

About a Slow Cabins weekend

WHAT EXACTLY ARE ‘SLOW CABINS®’?

Slow Cabins® are temporary eco houses that are completely self-sufficient when it comes to water and electricity provisions. They are situated in secret locations close to home and rose from the Slow (travel) movement, more about Slow Travel on our concept page. In a Slow Cabin there is no Internet as well, which means that you slow down and break free from the stress of everyday life.

WHAT DO YOU MEAN BY ‘SELF-SUFFICIENT’?

Self-sufficient lodging is unique. Not only are you going back to basics, you also gain more respect for nature and the environment. You become acquainted with the slower pace of nature and learn to accept it as it is.

Upon your arrival, you are given a fully charged battery – charged by solar panels. In addition, you get a substantial water reservoir filled with filtered rainwater. At normal consumption levels, you can live completely self-sufficiently with ‘zero impact’ for several days (even during the winter months). So as your cabin’s battery discharges, yours recharges.

However substantial, your resources are not endless, during your self-sufficient stay, heightened awareness of how you use energy and water is thus essential. Throughout your stay, you can monitor your battery, as well as your rainwater levels, on a display in the Slow Cabin.

Being obligated to keep an eye out for your resource levels raises consciousness and promotes active awareness of your footprint during a your stay. A consciousness, many of our guest take home with them. Off-the-grid vacations are no longer a romantic dream – they’re an absolute reality! Read more on our Off-grid technology on our concept page

WHERE ARE THE SLOW CABINS® LOCATED?

Our Slow Cabins® are set up at temporary locations, which we keep strictly confidential. Don’t worry, they are no further than 2.5 hours’ drive from large central cities in Ireland. So, there is always one in your neck of the woods, pun intended :)!

When you make a reservation, you will receive all the relevant information on your Slow Cabin two weeks before departure. A brochure will tell you how to get there as well as information on activities in and around the cabin, from beautiful walks to cosy local eateries and other surprising slow activities.

HOW MANY PEOPLE CAN STAY IN A SLOW CABIN?

Our Time for Two cabins are suitable for up to 2 people

We can provide a baby cot on request for up to 1 child at some of our cabins. Please select this during your reservation under “extra services”.

HELP, I HAVE TO CANCEL MY STAY!

Oh no, that is too bad! Contact us as soon as possible at info[at]slowcabins.ie and we’ll look for a solution together.

CAN I BOOK OR RESERVE MEALS?

Due to the logistical complexity of servicing the Slow Cabins®, it is not yet possible to reserve meals. However, in the cabins, you have access to an equipped kitchen with a small gas burner and a wood BBQ, make sure to pack your chef’s hat.

It is entirely up to you whether you bring food along (or prepare at home to heat up in the cabin), buy daily fresh ingredients in the local shops or to go to a restaurant in the neighbourhood.

In our brochures, which we send to you two weeks before your stay, you will find all kinds of delicious tips on where to buy fresh local produce and where to find the best restaurants.

WHICH AMENITIES ARE PRESENT IN A SLOW CABIN?

Slow Cabins® are relatively small houses (<40 m2) which contain everything you need and nothing you don’t need.

Each Slow Cabin is equipped with a queen-sized bed (including linens), a bathroom with a warm shower and toilet, a wood-burning stove in the living room, a small, furnished kitchen with a refrigerator, a cooktop with two burners, flatware/silverware, cookware and utensils, a wood-burning barbecue (outdoor) with a grill plate and outdoor furniture. Everything you need to light the barbecue is at hand.

The most basic ingredients and supplies for the kitchen and bathroom, such as olive oil, salt and pepper, coffee and tea, soap and towels, are also present. Find a complete overview on everything that is present in the cabins on our Time for Two cabin page.

Our aim, by only providing the absolute necessities, is to give our guests the gift of peace, quiet and happiness. You can book your cabin here

ARE THERE ACTIVITIES IN AND AROUND THE SLOW CABIN?

Definitely! Two weeks before your stay, we will send you not only the info about the location of your cabin but also a brief guide to all the fun activities that are on offer in the vicinity of your Slow Cabin. What’s more, in the cabin itself you will also find various walking routes and brochures.
