Thursday Doors – Wee House

I know the house we’re renovating is tiny, but this little building is even smaller yet it has more toilets in it. This is the public toilets at Gougane Barra forest park in County Cork.

A friend sent me this one for Thursday Doors, so a big thank you to Alan Carratt for sharing this cute little thatch with us. It’s definitely a ‘wee’ house in more ways than one.

Speaking of wee houses, I’ve been trying to take a shot of this one on every trip we’ve made to Cavan but there’s nowhere to park and I have to take it from a moving car. This is the best one so far – it was the red doors that caught my eye.


It’s said that Cavan has 365 lakes – one for each day of the year and from what I’ve seen so far, I believe it. What do you find on rivers and lakes?

Water fowl – lots of them.

And barges – I love barges.


Here’s a beautiful video of the Gougane Barra Forest Park, shot by AirCam Ireland.

Well, I’ve got to go help Mr. R. dismantle the flat pack furniture. I hope you enjoyed this week’s very random post. Thanks so much for stopping by. Norm’s blog has a link to a great selection of Thursday Doors from around the world. Click on the ‘blue frog’ at the end of his post.

  1. Don’t know what it is, but I am fascinated by thatched roofs. Does that one have a skylight?

    I really like the features wee building. Essential and cute!

    The house you photographed from the road reminds me of the house featured on the menu of one of my favorite pubs (The Molly Wee) in New York. There’s a photo of the menu in the galery of this post – if you’re interested. The menu, if you can read it, tells the story of the Molly Wee.

  6. You took the words right out of my mouth (two meanings for “wee”.) What a beautiful area and I do love Celtic music. Enjoy the random post and that barge. 🙂

    It looks like a little mushroom, or a house for a Smurf.

    No reason why the public lavatories can’t be charming! Love the song, thanks Jean.

    A wee under the thatch is a lot more appealing than many public conveniences, that was well found by your friend! Your future home looks like it is set amidst some beautiful countryside. Will look forward to your move and some posts!

    Such a wealth of lakes speaks to my imagination. The area where hubby grows up, also has a lot of lakes, and sailing is the number one tourist attraction.
    The wee house is so cute, and with a thatched roof! The video is so romantic- visually and auditory:)

  17. I LOVE your thatched roof – truly the work of a great artisan. Like the red door and the park is beautiful. 🙂 Hope the work on the house is going well.

    Thatched roofs are fascinating to me as well. I always wonder how they’d stand up to the cold and snow we get here. Probably not well I guess, otherwise we’d see lots of them here.
    With all those lakes Cavan seems like a wonderful place 🙂

    aha! so this is where you first introduced us to the little cottage with the painted windows from this week’s Thursday Doors! When pictured from this vantage point, I can now understand your comment about how difficult it was to get a good photo of it.
