Small Cabins for Quiet Contemplation

If your idea of the perfect getaway is peace and quiet, these poustinia in Ireland may be the answer. What is a poustinia? The word is Russian and describes a small, sparsely-furnished room where one goes to be at one with God. Whoever your God happens to be, we think these small cabins at the Glencomeragh House Retreat Centre near Waterford are fantastic. Three are set into an incline surrounded in wildflowers, with views of the countryside, and one is by the lake. Dedicated to the theme of light, they celebrate the field rocks, woods and mountain streams which surround them. Heaven.
