Back to nature - Sleepy Hut is a 2.5m high insulated wooden hut nestled within a peaceful woodland setting known as Sleepy Hollows. Surrounded by a haven of birdsong, river-walk only 300m from the front door, and just off the Wild Atlantic Way - a great base for exploring north-west County Donegal.

3 minute stroll to local pubs Teach Tessie, and Leo's Tavern. 9 minute drive from Blue Flag beach (Carrickfinn), 15 minute from Errigal Mountain, 25 minute from Glenveagh Castle & National Park.

The space
The hut is situated on our small, adult-only campsite, and includes a private stone covered patio and small grass garden area, with a communal campfire. It has insulated double skinned walls and suitable for use all year round - climbers and walkers can make good use of the hut in the winter months - without having to worry about dealing with a wet tent. Inside the Hut is a small hard surface area (for shoes, bags etc) and a large padded floor. This is the sleeping area - and comes with a comfy small double sofabed supplied. It is ideal for 2 adults sharing, and room for a large dog, or two medium/small dogs.

You can opt to bring your own linen, blankets or sleeping bags, towels, cooking equipment etc. But you can leave your tent behind!

Whilst bedding (linen, duvet and towels) is not initially provided with your booking, it can be arranged ahead of your stay with a small single surcharge of €10 for 1-2 people - the linen charge covers your entire stay.

There is a shared Campers kitchen for your use with dish-washing area; fridge, freezer, kettle, toaster, microwave and various cooking utensils to borrow if needed during your stay. Free hot showers, all day – no coins or tokens (shared with other campers).

Foraging onsite with permission – please speak with us first to help ensure environment sustainability and stability.

We are Pet-Friendly – pets are welcome free of charge permitting their waste is cleared up and disposed. Onsite, dogs must be kept on a lead.

Recycling is compulsory at Sleepy Hollows - if you’re found to not be adhering to this simple task, you will be asked to take all your rubbish with you.

Guest access

Our guests have the exclusive use of the hut, stone chip patio area and small garden area. Free kitchen and bathroom facilities - shared with other campers. Guests are welcome to roam the 5 acre property and can access the nearby river from our private pathway.

Other things to note
We are an adult-only campsite.

Location

Crolly, County Donegal, Ireland

Our hut is located just off the Wild Atlantic Way and is a great base for exploring the north-west of County Donegal. A 3 minute stroll to local pub Teach Tessie, and pub and restaurant Leo's Tavern - renowned for its live Irish traditional music sessions (most nights), and being the birthplace of world famous musical talents Enya, Clannad and Moya Brennan.

9 minute drive from the nearest Blue Flag beach (Carrickfinn), 15 minute drive from Errigal Mountain, and 25 minute drive from Glenveagh Castle and National Park.

The Sleepy Hut is in a semi-rural location so a bike, motorcycle or vehicle is ideal. Taxis from the airport and to local area can be arranged. There are many beautiful walks on our doorstep we can recommend; areas to enjoy picnics, places to eat-out, drink and soak-up the local culture. Our property is sometimes visited by a small group of deer, and otters have been sighted along our river that contains salmon.

During your stay
We always aim to be present for your arrival and are happy to direct you to all that the area has to offer. On any occasion that we will not be available to greet you, we will arrange for someone else to be there if possible. We believe it’s important to give you the privacy of the cabin as your own space, but welcome the chance of making new friends. We are often found outdoors working somewhere on property and always approachable. There are spare gardening gloves and wellies if you feel like joining in!
