about the property

Bespoke lakeside shepherd's hut on the shore with cool outdoor 'cube' for fireside evenings overlooking the bay, on Ireland's Wild Atlantic Way!

We're lucky enough to own a wonderful piece of land on Traighenna Bay, a sheltered stretch of water on Ireland's famous 'Wild Atlantic Way'. We've designed and built 'Lakeside Luna' to sit on the edge of a beautiful pool, and also 'Kuba' alongside where guests can enjoy their evenings under cover with a wood-burning stove. It's an entirely self-contained private unit that is comfortable all year round.

Luna has been carefully designed to contain all the essentials - a quality (fullsize) double bed, fridge, cooker etc, and a small shower and toilet room inside. Outside you've decking and Kuba, an 'outdoor cube' we designed so you could enjoy the views fireside in any weather.

A 5 minute drive will take you to Dooey beach (one of the finest in Ireland) or there are smaller, sandy beaches on the way. You can walk to the shore from Luna, but it's best to nip into the car for the really nice sandy beaches. Locally youll find an amazing coastline, small-towns, good food, Glenveigh National Park and plenty to fill weeks of day trips.

travel info

You can easily fly by lowcost carrier but we prefer the greener (and nicer) route by ferry with your own car. Ireland is such an amazing country, and you'll find so much to do and see 'en route'.

Note Aer Lingus often have deals as cheap as Ryanair/ Easyjet and fly to 15 UK airports

Fly to:

Sail with either Stenaline or Irish Ferries to:

  • Belfast via Liverpool/ Stranraer (2 hr. 35 mins. away)
  • Larne via Fleetwood (2 hr. 40 mins.)
  • Dublin via Holyhead/ Douglas (3 hr. 30 min.)
  • Dun Laoghaire via Holyhead (3 hr. 35 mins.)
  • Rosslare via Fishguard/ Pembroke Dock (5 hr. 15 mins and and an amazing drive)
    (Tip - ferries cheapest Mon>Thu)

Loved Luna and kuba. The directions getting there were good and it was nice to meet Greg. On arrival it was spotless and there was a good information pack. We had a lovely stay with everything being there. We were very impressed with the booking process and the stay that we will definitely consider using UTT again

Luna is a spectacular and unique place to relax, it's a hidden gem! (but easy to find with the help of googlemaps!) We wanted a weekend to chill out but also to get out and explore during the day. There was plenty of places nearby for us to visit. We stayed for two days and we experienced every season! but even if it's raining (and be prepared for this!) it doesn't take away from the breath-taking surroundings of the Wild Atlantic Way. We explored a number of beaches (when the sun was shining) right on our door step, as well as visiting the cliffs of Sliabh Liag 45 mins drive . But for us Luna and Kuba was the best bit of our stay. We wanted to relax and we couldn't have picked a better place to relax in. We sat in Kuba our first night, fire on, looking out onto the beautiful country side and watched the sun go down with glass of wine. Heaven. The bed is great size and comfy, kitchen is well equipped, and the shower has plenty of hot water (perfect to come back to after a day of exploring the Wild Atlantic Way) - a great host and left all the information we needed for our stay. Wish we could have stayed a full week, we will definitely be back! - Jamie
