LOOK at their faces.

There are all kinds of gems on Airbnb.

From private islands in South America to castles and pubs in Ireland, there’s no shortage of unusual – and Instagram-worthy – vacation spots.

We think we may have found our favourite one yet, though.

Introducing the Lodge at Hushabye Farm in Laois – aka, the perfect vacation spot for alpaca fans.

Yes, you read that correctly.

Not only do you have the chance to stay in a gorgeous stone cottage (in an equally as stunning location), but you can spend time with a cuddly alpaca, too.

How can you say no to that furry little face?

The cottage is available to rent starting at €90 a night – which, as it suits up to four guests, means you could stay there for as little as €22.50 a night.

Located at the foothill of the Slieve Bloom mountains, the two-bedroom cottage ” is in the corner of the farmyard with access to all paddocks and adjacent to a country lane.”

Any guests are encouraged to go to the paddocks and see/walk/cuddle/play with an alpaca – however, “be mindful to close any gate you open” to keep the Alpacas safe.

There’s no WiFi in the cottage, so it’s the perfect chance to get away from it all – or just to curl up with a good book, maybe?

It seems like the venue is a pretty big winner with guests, with the Lullabye Lodge having five-stars in every category.
