Ireland is a land of myths, legends, and romance. If you will be visiting, why not stay in a tiny cottage which evokes all that this beautiful green country is famous for?
Crows’ Hermitage is a tiny accommodation located in the quaint village of Ardcath near Dublin. It’s just a short drive from a number of shops and restaurants and a three-minute stroll from the pub.
To say that this house is beautiful is an understatement. It looks almost like a small church rather than a place to stay for the night. The stonework makes you feel like you’ve been swept back in time to the days of old. Actually, the house was originally a barn, but the owner refurbished it in 2008 so that it could serve a new purpose.
Both the doors and the windows in the front of the house were crafted by hand.
The house even includes its own built-in garden.
Now let’s step inside and take a proper look around!
The stonework is just as impressive to behold from inside the tiny house. Shelves have been built right into the walls, saving space and giving the interior and organic look. A wood-burning stove can keep you toasty even on the coldest Dublin days.
The bed is located up on the “mezzanine,” which is essentially a tiny house loft. It doesn’t feel like a loft, though. With such a grand view, the ambiance is one of luxury and sophistication.
Next to the bed is a small table and a bed-side lamp as well as a little mirror. There is also a chair next to the window where you can sit and enjoy the view.
It looks like there is storage located under the steps that lead up to the mezzanine. Next to the stairs, there is a cozy little dining area which would be right at home in any tiny house.
The big double barn doors and the huge windows overhead are framed exquisitely by grand curtains. It really is amazing how much the mere presence of these curtains transforms the entire space. They really are one of the essential components for giving it its feeling of lavishness.
They also add some seamless lines from floor to ceiling, which unifies the vertical space, emphasizing how high the ceiling is.
While staying in the stone barn, you will be able to prepare your own meals in the fully featured kitchen.
The kitchen is located right behind the stairs up to the mezzanine.
The bathroom is simple but functional, has that same air of sumptuous class about it.
Eclectic artwork decorates the walls.
This cute teakettle and the cow bookend add some rustic touches.
The location is amazing. Just across the way are some old ruins.
Imaginative décor like this fountain in the garden brings even more fairytale beauty to this little vacation rental.
That grass is so green! There is a small table next to the lawn where you can sip a refreshing beverage and enjoy your surroundings.
I imagine this tiny house is very cozy in the winter!
The thick walls probably provide great insulation.
Here is a closer look at those nearby ruins. They are the remains of an abbey dating back to the 13th century.
