Distraction free workcations at off-grid cabins designed to help you get inspired.
Consciously choose time away from your daily work routine to invest in your professional wellbeing. Take stock, refocus and grow at Slow Cabins® in Kinvara, Co. Galway.
SOMETIMES YOU NEED TO STAND STILL TO MOVE FORWARD
Analytical thinking takes place when we’re actively participating in solving a problem, usually in the office. On the other hand insight is that lightbulb moment, often found in “flow state”, where we find clarity, direction and purpose – almost never in the office!
Taking time out in a Slow Cabin away from distraction, allows ourselves to unearth the ability to deep work and unearth those subtle subconscious connections we all need as part of our professional development.
Spending time Slow Working in nature has a calming effect on the mind and body, helping to alleviate the physical and emotional symptoms of stress. We deliver an inspired location to stimulate success, now the rest is down to you.

Slow Cabins aims to create a positive impact on people and planet. We do this by organising slow experiences, raising off-grid awareness and regenerative nature building in Europe.
Slow Cabins are ecological cabins that are completely self-sufficient in terms of water and electricity. They are located in magical locations in the great outdoors, where you can slow down, focus and create.
The cabins are spread over several regions in Flanders and Ireland at a driving distance of less than 2.5 hours from major cities.
HOW MUCH IS A SLOW WORKING-PACKAGE?
We offer four comprehensive packages:
* one day (9am to 5pm): 240,-
* one night (check-in at 4pm; check-out at 5pm): 300,-
* two nights (check-in at 4pm; check-out at 11am): 350,-
* tailor-made (decide the number of nights yourself): price to be agreed upon
Making a Slow Working experience happen in the middle of nature is not an easy task. Our professional cleaning team is available every day to prepare the most remote cabins for an inspiring stay in all weather conditions.
Slow Cabins are completely self-sufficient. That means your hot water, electricity and heating comes 100% from nature. The ten high-tech solar panels generate energy that is stored in the latest home batteries. You will have enough electricity during your stay with normal consumption.
In addition, each cabin has a water tank that can hold 1,500 litres of rainwater. That water is then filtered through three filters so you can shower and cook safely. Afterwards, a natural helophyte bed ensures that the waste water can be returned to the ground clean and safe. This keeps the impact on nature to a bare minimum.
We also provide everything you need and nothing you don’t. This way you can enjoy an unforgettable and inspiring stay, close to yourself and nature.
WHERE ARE THE SLOW CABINS® LOCATED?
Our first Slow Cabins® are set up just 30 minutes south of Galway on the west coast, the perfect place to inspire creativity!
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.
CAN I BRING SOMEONE?
Slow Cabins are designed for inspiring workspace for one or two guests, equipped with a queen-size bed (160×200). You can come perfectly alone as well as brainstorm with a (business) partner or organise a one-on-one session with a client.
Would you like to book multiple days with a business partner or client? We offer locations with multiple cabins that are close to each other. Contact us and we’ll find a solution.
WHEN AND HOW LONG CAN I STAY IN A SLOW CABIN?
We offer Slow Working-packages from Monday to Friday. Depending on the package, the check-in and -out times differ slightly.
If availability allows it, it is possible to deviate from this schedule and book an additional weekend. Feel free to contact us and we’ll see what we can do.
SHOULD I BRING MY OWN MEALS?
In the brochure, you will find a list of local (sustainable) partners where you can go for shopping, buy meals or go out to restaurants.
In some cases, it is possible to book a breakfast for your stay that will be delivered directly to the cabin.
Due to the logistical complexity of Slow Cabins, it is not yet possible to book hot meals today. In the cabin you will find all basic ingredients and kitchen utensils to prepare a tasty meal. There is also a wood barbecue outside.
It is entirely up to you whether you bring your own food, buy something locally in the local shops or go out for a meal in the neighbourhood.
IS THERE WI-FI?
We opt for a WiFi-free stay, because creative thinking is rarely accompanied by electronic devices. Of course we understand the diverse needs of our guests and we offer WiFi in some cabins for those who really need it. Just let us know what you prefer when booking, and we will try accommodate your request.
I AM SELF-EMPLOYED. IS MY STAY DEDUCTIBLE?
Definitely! Your Slow Working-experience is for professional purposes and is therefore 100% deductible. You will receive the invoice by e-mail a couple of days after your stay.
I'D LIKE TO COME MORE THAN ONCE. IS THAT POSSIBLE?
We do too! It’s no-brainer to invest in multiple trips per year as part of building healthy working habits. We offer an annual subscription service as of 3 stays. Get in touch with us, and we’ll come back with an offer.
