Creative Residence – Make Space For Imagination

Are you an artist, entrepreneur, thinker, dreamer, rambler, writer or just damn creative?

Do you need space to explore your potential and make your ideas happen? Had enough of endless distractions stopping you achieving your goals?

We just might have the solution! The elbowroom escape is offering an oasis of calm and luxury Monday- Fridays over the summer for you to create your masterpiece, and in return, you barter your time.


The deal

You stay in our remote boutique venue. We provide, rooms, space, and mother nature provides the beauty that is the Glen of Imaal.  With its mountains and forest in our back garden, you have time and space to create, think, design and direct your energy into your passion.

In return, you barter 4 hours help for each day staying. Help could be gardening in our permaculture foodie paradise, painting, leaf blowing, wood chopping, gathering, meeting new visitors or perhaps you have other talents?

Who are you?

We are especially interested in self-sufficient adulty types. You know who you are. You can muck in and clean up the kitchen. You generally get on with folk. You won’t get rat-arsed, shout at people and fall asleep in the dining room before weeing on the vegetable patch. Not the drama queens either. We are in the mountains. There is no room service.

The details

The venue is remote and you will need your own transport. The specifics are:

  • The venue is available on designated Mondays 12 noon to Fridays 10 am in single or shared rooms.
  • A self-service continental breakfast will be available in the cabin
