If you’ve been cooped up in the city, whether it’s in an apartment or just a built-up area, you might be craving a slice of nature. AirBnb has loads of great Irish cabins that offer the chance to totally immerse yourself in their rural landscapes. Here are 6 ones we love the look of.

The cabin sleeps up to six people, and is listed at €89 per night in August, with a minimum two-night stay.
