This budget-friendly cabin provides the illusion of camping with many more amenities than a tent. The cabin amenities include wireless internet, fully equipped kitchen, laptop workspace, heating, breakfast, and most importantly solid walls and a roof. Inside the cabin, there are huge windows, which make you feel as if you are truly in the great outdoors. Though the decor is simple, painting, flowers, and brightly colored cushions add interest to the cabin. Guests usually enjoy walking through the lovely garden and having bonfires. Shops, hiking trails, rock climbing and kayaking can be found only about two kilometers (1.24 miles) away from the cabin, so there should be plenty to do!

This chalet is filled to the brim with countryside charm. It is small and white; vibrant colored vines, flowers, and other potted plants enliven the building. The interior is surprisingly large given the outer appearance of the chalet with a massive leather couch and an interesting color palette of black, scarlet, and white. It is situated at the base of the Wicklow mountains and is about a five minute walk from Ashford, a town where you can find various restaurants and pubs
