The Bothy at Knockaloe Beg Farm
Hostel accommodation, sleeping 2 people.
This is the oldest property at Knockaloe Beg and has been restored in 2012 as authentically as possible, providing hostel accommodation for two people.
There are mixed opinions as to its former use – maybe a fruit store or possibly housing for itinerant workers coming to help with harvesting, or even housing for the poor?
We have made the top room into a lovely little sitting room with sofa, TV, chest of drawers, fridge, kettle and microwave.
There is a very steep staircase-cum-ladder to the downstairs room which has 2 single beds which can be pushed together as a double. There is an outside door to this as well for those who can’t brave the stairway!
There is a toilet and basin outside at the bottom of the steps and showers across the yard below our Bunkhouse.
There is an oil filled electric radiator downstairs and a woodburner lookalike electric blow heater upstairs.
