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.
