The 3 of us had an amazing weekend at the Bed in Barn, it was an excellent way to escape to the great outdoors. It was in a beautiful region and the way the Barn is set up, it felt like we were living in the landscape. Ineke and Benjamin were very hospitable and provided plenty of thoughtful touches. It was a pleasure to meet them, we were really interested to be shown around their studio where they operate their bindery and craft businesses. Plenty of beautiful walks around the area and a cosy outdoor fire to come home to each night. Highly recommended for those looking to have a relaxing trip or wanting to get back to nature!
What a special place. A great way to step away from modern life and get in touch with nature. We had such a fantastic 24 hours at the bed in barn. We cycled country lanes over the Ox Mountains and watched the sunset by a campfire. Ineke and Benji are wonderful hosts and couldn’t do enough for us. It was like stepping back in time to a simpler way of life.
Another wonderful stay with Ineke & Benjamin. Thank you both so much. Hope to see you again soon. Highly recommend Bed in a Barn to all
Such a unique accommodation to switch off from the fast paced modern world around us.
Beautiful. Pet goat! CoMatthew User Profileld at the time but stove to make a fire so you best practice! Awesome seeing. Just wish we stayed more then one night so we could enjoy it more
We had a wonderful stay in the barn – the location is wonderful and they have everything you could need. Both Inke and Benjamin were lovely too. Would love to come back again!
Bed in Barn is the perfect place to get away from it all…. all you can hear is the birds and the bell from the collar of the pet goat! Absolutely tranquil! We were only staying one night and didn’t get to explore the local area but wish we had arrived earlier to enjoy more of the evening on the swing seat, overlooking the mountains! An outstanding view! It does mention somewhere in the listing that there is no oven or microwave, so don’t buy anything that requires baking…. the oven part of the range is non functional so stick to pan fried/steamed food! A few key items like salt, pepper and oil are kindly provided but remember your own butter and milk! The range does a great job of keeping the place warm as long as you keep on top of it, but bring warm clothes as Ineke & Benjamin mention in the listing in case you aren’t as lucky as me and bring your own professional Fireman! We loved the rainwater shower and the back to basics feel of the place 🙂 Ineke and Benjamin are warm and friendly, interesting humans who have done a fabulous job at providing the quirkiest, most quiet and peaceful nights accommodation of our 10 nights in Ireland! My best advice would be stay longer than we did!
Hello, The place was great, clean and full of many small magnificent touches which made the whole stay gorgeous. Ineke and Benjamin were great hosts and are still the true “Airbnb” hosts as it was few years ago. Be prepared for unique experience and real self-sufficient eco house
We had a great couple of days and nights at Ineke’s place. A great way to get away from it all and get closer to nature. Couldn’t have been better.
Great spot and friendly hosts! Had a great time and would be open to staying again if back in Sligo!
My partner and I had such a wonderful stay! The location was secluded and relaxing. The barn is unbelievably cozy, comfortable and clean. Ineke and Benjamin were incredible hosts and my only regret is that we couldn’t stay longer to get to know them better. An absolute must if…Read more
Great secluded spot. Despite a few issues due to the extreme weather, both Ineke and Benjamin were really helpful and produced alternative solutions to the problems that arose. Fantastic insight into book binding and restoration was also given by them, a must see. Thanks very much and will be recommending to my friends!
We had an amazing stay at Ineke’s place. I would totally recommend it! 🙂
This unique building, its hosts, the interior and surroundings are for those in search of magic. If you are coming to Ireland for a holiday then this is the secret key to attaching yourself to ancient mystery and heritage. Stay here! If you are from
You can’t get any other place in this country that is so relaxing and a good energy surrounding you every step you take.
Quite simply stunning. The Bed in Barn is one of the most tranquil and scenic locations in all of Ireland. The property is spotless and the hosts are extremely polite and friendly. A must for anyone wanting to explore the unblemished natural beauty of the west of Ireland.
Second time to stay in Bed in a Barn, and it was great! Love staying here. The hosts are lovely!
Absolute gem hidden in mossy copse of woods. Simply the best experience we’ve had with Airbnb so far. The rustic touches were delightful, the host was knowledgeable and very thoughtful. And they had a baby goat which stayed with us! This is rustic back to basics simplicity at its best.
Superb spot. x
A completely unique and gorgeous place to stay! Very isolated and quiet and a lovely romantic getaway! No tv and little internet meant you get to go for walks and sit by the fire. Absolutely incredible place to stay – can not recommend highly enough! We will be back!!
Bed In Barn is as special as you hope it will be. With a beautiful, secluded location, wonderful architecture, impressive levels of comfort, and a warm welcome from interesting hosts, one couldn’t really ask for more. Highly recommended. We will be back! 🙂

A must if you are looking for a rural Irish experience. Simply magical.
Great hosts very welcoming. Perfect getaway in a nice peaceful surrounding. House had everything you need for a comfortable stay.
This was our second stay at Bed in Barn, and like before we absolutely loved it. This time we brought along my uncle from Germany and he was blown away by the location and the barn itself. Ineke and Benjamin are lovely and very thoughtful hosts. Knowing that there was a cold night ahead, they left out extra wood for us, and on arrival we found a beautiful homemade bread from Benjamin. I was also very happy that the beds hadn’t changed from last time we were there as they are so cozy and warm. The combination of beautiful walks and hikes nearby and the peace and quiet at the barn makes this place the perfect location to unwind and recharge. Thank you Ineke and Benjamin for another lovely stay.
