An Tigín- a small but perfectly formed wooden cabin in the grounds of Old Rectory Retreat.Your writing desk looks through glass doors to its' cottage garden by the stream. It has full kitchen facilities. Living and sleeping areas are semi-separated.

The Tigín was added to Old Rectory Retreat a few years ago to facilitate writers and artists who were looking for their own intimate space in which to work, inspire themselves, relax or use as a base to explore the countryside for whatever reason.

The Tigín is set among trees on the banks of a stream. It's a cottage style wooden cabin with its own garden surrounded by a picket fence. The natural world around is lush and beautiful. You may catch a glimpse of miniature horses or rambling hens in the adjoining field.

The cottage has a surprisingly spacious feel. The interior was lovingly designed and built with great attention to detail, by my amazing sister and her husband in between writing and sewing stints. They know how to make the very most of small spaces. You will have full kitchen facilities and a tiny but beautiful shower room. Sleeping and living areas are partially divided by full length presses. The bed can be single or double sized to suit an individual or couple.

The cabin has been used in the past mainly by writers but also by artists who wanted to sketch or draw and by musicians writing songs. Some people have wanted to stay just to enjoy the peaceful surroundings.

The all important writers desk looks out through large french windows which are south facing or you can take your work outside and listen more closely to the gurgle of the stream.

Old Rectory Retreat is a small family run guest house and writers' retreat in a historic building dating from 1852. The main house is across the stream but well hidden by willow trees. You are welcome to use the sittingroom in the house if you'd like to spread your wings a little. There is an old garden behind the house which we are trying to restore as a vegetable garden. You are welcome to explore- but be careful!

I’m Róísín – your hostess and general organiser. I'm always happy to chat to guests and help with any questions you might have about the house, the surrounding area, walks, tours, town etc. Just come up to the Main house and knock on the kitchen door.

The surrounding area is a warren of lovely country walks on roads which don't have very much traffic (and on which cars cannot travel very fast anyway!) This makes it ideal for writers who need to refresh their batteries before sitting with laptop or paper again.
I can give you maps and guidelines.

A little further afield and you reach Croagh Patrick, our holy mountain and a coastline on which there is a beach every few miles.

You can head for Leenane, the Killary and Connemara, our back garden.

Cycling is very popular especially the Greenway to Achill and bikes can be hired from Westport Town.

We are situated just 3 miles from Westport with all its’ tourist amenities, art and craft shops and music most nights of the week.

There is no public transport. If you come without a car I'm very happy to bring you in and out of town whenever I can. Taxis are of course freely available at all times. Westport can be reached by bus and train from other parts of the country. Bikes are a good way to get around on country roads. Many cyclists use the main road but personally, I find the traffic

There is a minimum stay of one week May to August, of 3 nights in September and of 2 nights October to April.

Règlement intérieur

We assume that guests will treat us with the same respect for ourselves our house and grounds and our needs for privacy that we accord them.

As in all buildings in Ireland, no one smokes inside the Tigín or our house.

The Tigín is small but if you want to bring a dog please talk to me in advance. A lot of dog hairs can create cleaning difficulties but I also appreciate that for some people their dog is an essential companion.

We would ask you to leave the Tigín as you found it. We will of course look after the linen P!

Roisin nous avait préparé un panier de fruits en guise de bienvenue. C'est une hôtesse discrète et toujours disponible. Son logement est un havre de paix rafraichissant. Merci encore pour ce délicieux séjour.

Très beau séjour chez Roìsìn ! La petite cabane est fidèle à la description et est parfaitement bien situé, à 5 kilomètres de Westport, charmante petite ville avec de jolies pub/boutiques/restaurants et aux alentours Galway, Kylemore Abbey, le mont St Patrick, Achill Island... Roìsìn nous a gentiment accueilli avec des oeufs frais et de la bière artisanale de Westport. Elle est disponible en cas de problèmes ou de questions. De très belles vacances !

Unfortunately I didn't get to meet Róisín, but she had everything laid out for us & explained everything in great detail in advance. The cabin is really cosy & warm with a lovely stream outside and gorgeous views.

I’m Róísín – your hostess and general organiser. From the first time our family set eyes on The Old Rectory at Knappagh we knew we wanted to share it with others…so this is a dream come true. I’ve written with and been involved in writers’ workshops on and off over the years and worked in amateur and community drama in one of many past lives. Having hosted and cooked for so many family and friends’ gatherings which included evenings of music and poetry and found our house offered a creative space in many ways, it seemed a logical step to extend our hospitality to the wider community.
These days I have a new partner in my son Maitiú. Maitiú is 25 and studying Performing ~Arts with Blue Teapot in Galway. When he's at home he helps keep the Togón clean and tidy and welcomes guests. This year he also plans to do a bit of gardening. The hens are his good friends because he looks after them so well.
