An Tigín- a small but perfectly formed wooden cabin in the grounds of Old Rectory Retreat.Your writing desk looks through glass doors to its' cottage garden by the stream. It has full kitchen facilities. Living and sleeping areas are semi-separated.


The Tigín was added to Old Rectory Retreat a few years ago to facilitate writers and artists who were looking for their own intimate space in which to work, inspire themselves, relax or use as a base to explore the countryside for whatever reason.

The Tigín is set among trees on the banks of a stream. It's a cottage style wooden cabin with its own garden surrounded by a picket fence. The natural world around is lush and beautiful. You may catch a glimpse of miniature horses or rambling hens in the adjoining field.

The cottage has a surprisingly spacious feel. The interior was lovingly designed and built with great attention to detail, by my amazing sister and her husband in between writing and sewing stints. They know how to make the very most of small spaces. You will have full kitchen facilities and a tiny but beautiful shower room. Sleeping and living areas are partially divided by full length presses. The bed can be single or double sized to suit an individual or couple.

The cabin has been used in the past mainly by writers but also by artists who wanted to sketch or draw and by musicians writing songs. Some people have wanted to stay just to enjoy the peaceful surroundings.

The all important writers desk looks out through large french windows which are south facing or you can take your work outside and listen more closely to the gurgle of the stream.

Dostupno gostima

Old Rectory Retreat is a small family run guest house and writers' retreat in a historic building dating from 1852. The main house is across the stream but well hidden by willow trees. You are welcome to use the sittingroom in the house if you'd like to spread your wings a little. There is an old garden behind the house which we are trying to restore as a vegetable garden. You are welcome to explore- but be careful!

Kućni red

We assume that guests will treat us with the same respect for ourselves our house and grounds and our needs for privacy that we accord them.

As in all buildings in Ireland, no one smokes inside the Tigín or our house.

The Tigín is small but if you want to bring a dog please talk to me in advance. A lot of dog hairs can create cleaning difficulties but I also appreciate that for some people their dog is an essential companion.

We would ask you to leave the Tigín as you found it. We will of course look after the linen P!

If you are planning to stay anywhere near Westport, I highly recommend a stay at Roisin's cabin (sorry, can't put the accents with my keyboard!). The cabin is very charming and has everything you need for your stay. Our neighbours included a lovely dog named Nelly and sweet cat named Rufus (not to mention chickens!). The location is close to Westport so if you want to check out the town it is very easy to do, or you can climb Croagh Patrick (which we did following Roisin's recommendations). You are also close enough to check out Connemara and climb Diamond Hill! During our last night we went to a sweet pub in town, The Porter House, and made a few buddies! As a host, Roisin was super available and quick to respond if any difficulties or questions arose. It was a perfect stay and we will definitely come back!

Super leuk knus huisje voorzien met alles wat je maar nodig hebt. Het is groter dan ik had verwacht en is met zijn tweeen zeker goed te doen als je toch van plan bent er lekker op uit te trekken! Verder kregen we verse eitjes voor het ontbijt en waren er ook allerlei kruiden aanwezig wat erg fijn is als je lekker wilt koken en lagen er 2 verse eitjes voor ons ontbijt! Róísín gaf ons verder een aantal goede tips over leuke dingen in de omgeving die we konden bekijken. Kortom een superfijn huisje in een fantastische omgeving!

The little cabin is a great place to get away from it all. It's small and cute but had everything I needed. Nice little bit of outside space. Roisin's friendly dog and chicken did appear to visit me. Bed was soft and comfy. Nice desk and a lovely sofa. Roisin made me feel very welcome. Would say brilliant place to unwind for a few days as a solo traveller.

Nous avons beaucoup apprécié le logement, très cosy et entouré de verdure, conforme à la description. Encore merci à Roisin pour son accueil et sa prévenance. Nous avions une voiture, ce qui fait de ce logement un point de départ bien placé pour découvrir le Nord Mayo comme le Connemara. Wesport offre toutes les facilités de ravitaillement, à 5min en voiture.

Le logement est très très coquet au milieu d'un charmant jardin. La pluie (très rare en Irlande) ne nous a pas permis de profiter de la terrasse. Rosin est une hôtesse charmante.

The Writer's Cabin at the Old Rectory just south of Westport met all my needs. And the setting is tremendous. Roisin is a gracious hostess. Not sure this would work for couples. I travel alone the scale of the Cabin was perfect. It's right off of N56 but you won;t hear any traffic noise. Amenities include stove, microwave, fridge, pots pans and utensils. And there's a radio for listening to RTE One. Westport's a few minutes north and Croagh Patrick is even closer. Wish I could have stayed longer.

I’m Róísín – your hostess and general organiser. From the first time our family set eyes on The Old Rectory at Knappagh we knew we wanted to share it with others…so this is a dream come true. I’ve written with and been involved in writers’ workshops on and off over the years and worked in amateur and community drama in one of many past lives. Having hosted and cooked for so many family and friends’ gatherings which included evenings of music and poetry and found our house offered a creative space in many ways, it seemed a logical step to extend our hospitality to the wider community.
These days I have a new partner in my son Maitiú. Maitiú is 25 and studying Performing ~Arts with Blue Teapot in Galway. When he's at home he helps keep the Togón clean and tidy and welcomes guests. This year he also plans to do a bit of gardening. The hens are his good friends because he looks after them so well.
