Details for Gyreum


The Gyreum, Ireland's first ecolodge to be awarded
the EU Eco-Label for tourist accommodation offers a venue like none other.

BEST ECOLOGICAL BUILDING OF THE YEAR
European Eco-Label Lama Award Finalist

Located near Castlebaldwin, Co. Sligo, overlooking Lough Arrow and nestling in the heart of Sligo's cairn topped mountains. With open fire and large movie screen you can spend time relaxing in the circular hall or reading in the cosy, glass domed library. Alternatively you can explore ancient archaeology sites or surf at Strandhill or walk in the Bricklieve mountains or do damn all.

As you rise out of the Midlands - and feel the first savagery of the North West - that is where the Gyreum nestles. An 100ft wide wooden telly tubby-esque ring fort, a green and discreet hobbit-like edifice aligned to 3 solar events pointing toward the megalithic cairns of Moytura, Carrowkeel and Queen Maeve's 'tomb' on top of Knocknarae.

Note: The '2 Bed Mixed Dorm' is a two-person tent in the (floor-heated) main area of the building, complete with air mattresses, pillows and duvets.

!!! latest check in at 21oo / 9 pm !!!
(but we are merciful so please ring if you are late or lost - thanks!)
