5. The Birdbox, Co. Donegal – living out your childhood dreams
Don’t worry; it’s not a birdbox you’ll be staying in, but rather a weird and quirky treehouse. That’s right; you can officially live out your childhood dreams of sleeping overnight in your treehouse in this Donegal Airbnb.
It is a self-contained treehouse with a 100 ft (30 m) walk along a stepped wooden walkway through a bank of mature trees. These lead to the decked area of the treehouse.
The last 16 ft (5 m) are accessed by a rope bridge, and at the front of the deck, you are 16 ft (5 m) from the ground.
Despite being a treehouse, it has everything you could need – free parking, a washing machine, a dryer, a balcony, an indoor fireplace, a refrigerator, a hairdryer, and a kitchen.
It is a truly cosy place to stay that looks out at unbelievable scenery. The treehouse is a brilliant spot for those looking for a peaceful getaway, not to mention one of the weirdest Airbnbs in Ireland.
