One year ago we had stayed at Gyreum for three days and two nights. It was one of the most memorable places we visited in that summer thanks to unusual architecture and wonderful location. It was not very crowded at the beginning of August, a few people stayed - small group of students and the hosts/architects themselves who can gladly...

I stayed here with 2 friends and a toddler. We didn't know what to expect but upon arrival we were blown away. If you want to get of the beaten track and get away from it all, this is the place. We stayed 3 nights and did local excursions to Carrowkeel Moytura and carrowmore caves, amazing places on your doorstep....

This place has so much potential, it could be a great space for a large group. Its a funky place. It has a fabulous open plan living area, a well stocked kitchen with everything you would need to cook for a large group. But it is so neglected. Dust and dead flies everywhere. Mildew on duvets (not all duvets). Food...

As a family of 27 from toddlers to grandparents, this place ticked all the boxes until we got there. The place is quite run down and is not clean. We scrubbed the kitchen and hoovered on arrival as the sink was manky and there were cobwebs and dead flies everywhere. The electrical wiring is just dangerous, as is the access...

This lodge is the perfect place for a group retreat. Gathering around the cozy indoor copper fire circle is charming. The homemade local food is hearty, and the keepers of the lodge are friendly and very helpful. This place is not suited for upscale hotel travelers, but rather "campers at heart" who don't mind tending a fire. The loft room...

This was by far the most interesting place we stayed in Ireland. My wife found this place on the internet and, although it was out of the way, we stayed here because it looked really different. And it was. We missed the communal dinner and the group aspect (arriving as a group of Spanish tourists left but before a group...

Very run down! Seems like a place that was funky and cool years ago but has just been let go since! The owner was really rude and didn't seem interest in our custom at all. We were the only people staying there apart from about 15 spanish men who appeared to be working there feeding animals and working outside.

This was a nice place to stay - but be prepared! It is out in the country, maybe 20-30 minute drive from Sligo, so you'll spend some time on narrow country roads! It's a beautiful location, though, and very close to some amazing ancient historical sights and some great walks, if that's what you're into. I got some great advice...

If you are expecting a plush experience the Gyreum Ecolodge is not what you're looking for. However, if you're the earthy, easy going type...this is your spot. They whole place has amazing outdoor views, very quiet and an awesome vibe. The owner is very chill and lets you have the run of the place. The owner is also very knowledgeable...
