Welcome to Benji’s self-catering Bed in Barn, nestled in the heart of the Ox Mountains in the North West of Ireland.

Just off the Wild Atlantic Way, between Dromore-West and Tubbercurry

BenjI’s Bed in Barn is run by the Dutch couple Benjamin van de Wetering and Ineke Scholte. They speak Dutch, English and German and tiny bit of French

Tucked away in the middle of the unspoilt Ox Mountains, South Sligo, it is the ideal place to ‘get away from it all’, where the only call is that of nature beckoning you to explore it.
With it simple yet stylish indoors and its breathtaking outdoors, it makes an ideal retreat for nature lovers, artists, outdoor activists….
