A haven of peace and tranquillity
The Tractor Shed Loft

The Tractor Shed Loft is a spacious (160 sq m) open-plan first floor loft style apartment set in amongst the trees. The entire gable end is comprised of an impressive floor to ceiling 12-metre long window offering a panoramic view of the unspoilt West Cork landscape and distant glimpses of Roaringwater Bay and the Atlantic.

Accommodation includes two double bedrooms (one with 6ft double bed, which can also be arranged into 2 twins, and one with twin beds). Both bedrooms have en suite showers and whirlpool baths (where you can relax in the gentle swirl, glass in hand, while watching the starry night sky through the roof light!) There is a sleeping mezzanine above the kitchen area with 2 single mattresses ideal for older children and teenagers (as it’s up a ladder). Additionally, there is an ample double sofa bed in the living area. The kitchen is very well equipped and opens onto the huge airy living space, which has tables that can accommodate more than 20 people at a sitting (should you wish to entertertain!)

Environmental Notes

You can reduce your carbon foot-print by staying at Glensallagh. Electricity is partly generated on site by a 2.5kw wind turbine. You'll notice a slight green tinge to the lights, when it cuts in but you won’t be disturbed by the noise which is only ever a soft whirring.

Domestic hot water in The Tractor Shed Loft is supplied by solar panels and heating by a wood gasification stove, fuelled by pruning logs from the woodland.
