And something closer to home - 'Glamping' in yurts at the Rock Farm, Slane - overlooking the beautiful Boyne and Slane Castle. http://rockfarmslane.ie
The Lime House at the Rock Farm - designed by Hofler Architect's Paul Mulhern MRIAI, is a 2-storey 6-bedroom eco guesthouse, which will be built out of straw and clad with clay plaster and paint on the inside and lime on the outside to provide healthy, environmentally-sound eco-tourism accommodation in the Boyne Valley. This guesthouse has been designed to the highest environmental construction standards, and in sympathy with the woodland, organic farmland and architecturally-protected parkland surrounding the development.
The Lime House will be a hub for all visitors to the farm, providing valuable shelter in times of inclement weather and also a range of additional facilities for guests that ensure a more comfortable and convenient stay for guests. It will also offer an attractive space for socialising with other like-minded guests.
The building includes renewable heating systems, an integrated constructed wetland for the foul waste and ecological building materials into the building design.
