This little diamond of a find was everything myself and my boyfriend wanted for a weekend away in Ireland. We travel a lot and love experiencing and exploring new places and spaces and yet all we wanted was to go somewhere to relax, chill, read and simply be – as far from the world as possible.
Everything about staying at Hygge House is stunning With everything one might need for either adventuring through the Wild Atlantic Way of literally not leaving the house (as were pretty much did), the amenities and facilities are top notch. Karen and Gerry are amazing hosts.
Truly amazing. Taking everything into account from sharing their vegetable garden with you to a fabulous welcome note and a well-thought out welcome pack that tells you all you need to know about the house and surround area. They are available to help in any way and really, with truly heartfelt kindness, make you feel at home.
We shopped at the local supermarket and got in food for the weekend. Breakfast, lunch and dinner were spent on the upstairs balcony taking in the most incredible views we have seen in Ireland and watching the sunset was magical as we brought out blankets, candles and a delightful G&T.
This house is about the little things in life, the important moments we tend to miss in the hustle and bustle and daily runnings of our lives – it is about sleeping with the balcony doors open so as to hear the crashing waves and the sound of the dawn chorus, taking in the view, enjoying sunrise and sunset, relaxing by the fire, being truly with those you love, walks on the beach and notably.. with noooooo wifi to distract you from the world you have gladly left for just a few days, it is the kind of relaxation we find so difficult to find in life today. It is simply put, magical.
