Ballyeamon Barn accommodation offers modern comfortable budget priced accommodation with 14 bunk beds (with bedding) .
It has free wifi, central heating, fully fitted kitchen with free tea/coffee. There are laundry facilities, a barbeque area and a workshop space which can also be rented by groups.
This is a hostel accommodation with a difference. Ballyeamon Barn has its own “session house” where visitors have the chance to meet local musicians and singers during regular sessions of storytelling and music, free and open to all.
Owner Liz Weir hosts groups of visitors who want to experience the “real” Northern Ireland, meet the locals and feel part of the community. They do so within the rich culture and scenic beauty of the Glens of Antrim- with its folklore, music and dance.
Our large group included several people with additional needs and the understanding and kindness from Liz and her staff ensured we all had a great stay. The hostel itself is amazing – full of character and set in a stunning location, and has everything you need for a pleasant stay. We can’t thank them enough for how well we were looked after and would recommend 100% for similar groups.
Liz also offers storytelling workshops and can arrange local walking guides, horse riding, yoga and ‘pamper’ sessions for visitors. You will leave with lots of stories!
I loved my stay here, I wish i could have stayed longer! So friendly and welcoming and in a beautiful location. Above and beyond what i would expect from a hotel never mind a hostel! A hidden gem, definitely coming back!
