Explore Éire: This Land Boat Is The Perfect Quirky Staycation Idea For Couples

Looking for an Irish break away with a difference?

Airbnb just keeps delivering.

At least once a week, I scour through it to find the weird and wonderful options available on the Emerald Isle and I am never disappointed.

This week I came across one of the cutest places I've seen.

Say hello to Nesbitt, a land boat located just 15 minutes from Kinsale town.

The one-bedroom boat is set in its own private garden, overlooked by 3 donkeys. It's also close by to some alpaca and shetland ponies.

It's a cosy space with electricity, a cooker, toilet and showering facilities onboard, making it the ideal spot for couples.

It's a peaceful and quiet location surrounded by animals, trees and farmland just five minutes from fantastic beaches. 

Nesbitt was destined for the scrap heap but her owners completely transformed her over an 18 month period. Almost everything in her has been recycled. She has a bedroom with a triangular-shaped double bed, a galley kitchen, living space, a seating area and a bijou bathroom.
