The huts are eco friendly and have been handcrafted by local tradesmen using local materials where possible. Each hut contains a pumped rain shower with constant hot water from the BioGas powered Boiler. A natural stone wash hand basin is contained within the snug bathroom. The huts are available all year round with Biogas heating servicing each hut.
The main room of the hut has a king sized bed for two with fresh bedsheets on arrival, a kitchenette with microwave, kettle, toaster, plug-in induction hob, pots, pans and cutlery. There is also a gas barbecue outside each individual hut for those sunny days dining al fresco.
Some huts have private seaweed baths with locally harvested seaweed for a detoxifying experience.
The Labasheeda Peninsula has a rich archaeological record, stretching back almost 2,000 years, with several stately homes, ancient churches, holy wells, Napoleonic Era military constructions and more, all within easy reach (and on quiet roads) by bike, car or on foot from the Beds of Silk base. Bikes are available to hire on request from Beds of Silk.
Beds of Silk was developed by two local farmers to provide accommodation for couples and small groups visiting the region as the Labasheeda Peninsula and Shannon Estuary opens up to those who are eager to explore sights in the West of Ireland that are off the beaten track. It’s a great base for visiting renowned attractions like the Cliffs of Moher, the Burren, County Kerry, Bunratty Castle, Adare and Limerick City all within an hour’s drive. Shannon International Airport is a 50 minute drive away.
