Jeffry's House is a peculiar shelter and installation set up by architect Thomas O'Brien and artist Emily Mannion in the Irish countryside. The structure is Ireland's first architectural installation in a forest park, and is designed to respect and fit in with its rural surroundings. The house is named after Jeffry's Lough, a lake that once existed nearby but has since disappeared.

Jeffry's House consists of a wooden frame structure that is covered by thatch. It is designed to sit on stilts so as to not disturb and ground beneath it. Located towards the edge of a forest, it offers visitors shelter as well as peaceful views of the nearby sea, sand dunes and distant mountains. It aims to provoke conversation and dialogue between people and their surroundings. Stats for Rural Forest Shelters Trending: Older & Mild
