Welcome to Sheelin Shepherd’s Huts, a cosy bespoke cabin situated on our family dairy farm, overlooking Lough Sheelin and approximately 1 hour from Dublin airport. We are located a 10-minute walk from the lake shores, and nearby to Crover House Hotel and Golf Course. The driveway is shared due to safe access to the road, but there is a private walkway entrance. The cabin itself is located at the back of an old horse stable. It is handcrafted and finished to the highest standard that I have been able to accomplish.

Your host

This was a little project I built to capture a view. It was built during the first lockdown. Professionally my career has been in engineering, where I managed Civils projects across Scotland and Real estate developments in San Franciso. Living the dream, I spent my winters working in the Alps, along with travelling the globe when possible.



Netflix and chill. Whether you want to read a book, surf the web or make a tiktok. The cabin comes with Wifi, board games and is the perfect place to unwind.

The Breakfast

The kitchen space has a small Gas hob, microwave and fridge. It is suited for a light breakfast. We supply Tea Coffee and a French Press.


The bed and linen are 5-star standard. Made to feel plush, there are 2 feather and 2 synthetic pillows, a feather duvet and extra blankets. Underfloor heating is set to an ambient temperature to keep your toes warm, while radiators may be adjusted to suit. The bathroom has a shower, small sink, mirror and toilet. A hairdryer is located in the basket beside the bed.
