PICS: You can now rent a bona fide Hobbit house in Donegal

Hobbit house Ireland

They’re taking the hobbits to Donegal.

If you’ve ever fancied living like Bilbo Baggins of The Shire, now might be your chance.

There’s a legit “Hobbit Hillpod” available on Airbnb, based right here in Ireland. Glencolumbkille in Donegal to be exact.

The description of the property reads: “Our architect-designed retreat is perfect for two, and cleverly thought out to be comfortable. So nothing is ‘caravan size’ – all appliances, bed etc are full size.

“It is better insulated than almost any modern home, and easily heated by an electric heater and warm all year round – though in this coastal location warmed by the gulf stream sub-zero temperatures are rare.”

The location also includes WiFi, a television, a kitchen, a full-size double bed and a shower. Most of which they did not have in the Lord of the Rings.

Just be on the lookout for Smeagol.
