We had a great stay in the barn! Wonderful silence, lots of nature and great hosts.
Benjamin and Ineke really made sure we had everything we needed, while still giving us lots of space and privacy. We will definitely be back!

Ineke gives a great Irish /Dutch welcome. I’d highly recommend staying here if you just want a break from it all. Very relaxing setting. You’ll want to stay longer.

This is an amazing opportunity to experience one of the real wild and natural areas of Ireland, in a lovely accomadation that’s modern and comfortable, but perfectly in tune with the local environment. Ineke and Benjamin are wonderful hosts that are friendly, helpful and welcoming. I’d recommend this experience to everyone.

A beautiful place and such welcoming & lovely hosts! We had a wonderful 2 night stay here-the barn has everything you need and more, in a magical setting. The fire pit and outdoor area outside is such a relaxing spot to spend the evenings and enjoy the peaceful mountains. A very special place!!

The most secluded and peaceful Air BnB experience I’ve ever had. The host were so kind and thoughtful and you could tell they put a lot of thought and time into the barn. It’s a special place.
If you need to get away for a few days and completely switch off then this is the place to do it. I couldn’t recommend it any more

I am already counting down the days until I get to visit Ineke and Benjamin’s barn again! They are wonderful hosts and the barn is a wonderful place to take some time out and relax. Although it is described as “back to basics”, we were extremely comfortable and warm during our stay. The barn is surrounded by beautiful countyside and it’s a quick drive to the nearest town. I can’t recommend this place (and Ineke and Benjamin!) enough 🙂

My son and I spent a night in the bed-in-a-barn and we had a wonderful and memorable time. It is in a lovely location and our hosts were super friendly and gave us a great welcome. We loved this quirky building and the space outside where you can explore, light a fire and relax in the swing. It’s very comfy inside and we cooked a nice dinner, relaxed and slept like logs. And there’s a goat! And the very interesting Ox Book Bindery. It is an experience we will remember for years to come!

August 2019It was a real treat to sit outside on the swing in the evening playing music by the fire looking up a the stars. Ineke and Benjamin have created a beautiful retreat in the mountains and we look forward to our next visit!

The bed in a barn is a rare find. It is homely and comfy and fully equipped for your stay. We really loved the bbq area with swing, it made for a peaceful place to have a morning coffee! The surrounding walking trails and countryside adds to the special-ness of the barn. This is something unique and we can’t wait to go back.

Ineke and Benjamin both welcomed us and we had a great stay from start to finish. We had a great experience learning about their way of life living off the land and their amazing businesses. Highly recommended!

The bed in a barn is a very special place – words cannot describe the experiences you will have accurately.
It’s homely, comfy& cosey. Ineke & Benjamin are really great hosts who make you feel welcome from the get go and cannot do enough for you. The surrounding countryside adds to the mystique and special-ness of their little bolt-hole / hide away. In saying that.. you have county Sligo at your doorstep and nothing is more than an hour away. Definitely go to the Pudding Row Cafe ( in Easley) for a good meal or fantastic deserts with vegan & veggie options too. Thank you Ineke & Benjamin . We will be back for sure xx

This house is a rare find. The barn was nicely renovated and the outside patio and garden adds and extra value to the space. The owners, environmentally conscious, have put in place several ways of heating the space and the water, ranging from renewable solar panels to old fashioned wood stove. They also have a big garden where they grow their own food and even a green house for those cold days. The second bedroom has lots of toys for the kids and there are many interesting books to read to them. The place is very nicely decorated and it just has a very different vibe. If you want something unique, this is the place for you.

Thanks so much for an amazing night in the barn. Thank you for building and inviting people to come and enjoy the tranquility and beauty and absolute bliss of sitting on the swing around a fire with great company in a unique setting. We loved every minute. A MUST stop for everyone visiting Sligo. Would highly recommend .

We had a wonderful stay and we would love to come back! Beautiful and quiet location in the Ox mountains with lots of walking trails to choose from. The place itself is lovely and the rooms are spacious and comfortable. Ineke and Bemjamin have also prepared a guide book with lots of information on what you can do around Sligo and Mayo.

Had a wonderful stay in the Bed in the Barn! Beautiful little place tucked away in the mountains with everything you could want to chill-out and recharge! Firepit with outdoor swing, REALLY comfy bed and breakfast stuff, and the hosts were both so welcoming and helpful with local tips! We even got to play with their pet goat Bella! Would definitely stay again 🙂

10/10 for resetting your brain. Tucked away in the country, you’ll never experience tranquility in any other place like what you would in the bed in barn. Ineke and Benjamin were amazing and so welcoming. Cant wait to go back

This was our second time staying at bed in barn and it was even better than the first. Ineke and Benjamin go above and beyond to make their cosy and unique barn welcoming to every guest. Not to mention the spectacular views, seaweek baths and ride swimming pool close by. Would highly recommend!

The barn is a fantastic place to recollect yourself, the sounds of the city are happily substituted for the song of the cuckoo and a chorus of leaves. All that aside our arrival was met with open arms and we were instantly made feel at home. Whether going for a walk in the beautiful surrounding areas, enjoying the sun in the zen garden or sitting by the fire while on the swing, the barn is super chill and for those looking to get away the perfect place.

Wonderful setting and beautifully presented. The area is incredibly beautiful and very peaceful. Ineke and Ben are wonderful hosts and have thought of everything. The fire pit and swing seat area is particularly notable.

This was a last minute thing for us and was exactly what we were looking for, a rustic weekend escape and return to nature and basics. We enjoyed hiking in the area and living depending on a wood fired stove for heat and hot water, a great experience. Meeting Bella the goat was also a highlight!

Bed in Barn is a beautiful rustic and cozy little place in the mountains. The scenery all around is spectacular and the garden on the barn grounds is a perfect place for hanging out. We loved our time here!

A great little location to just get away from it all and relax; phone free. Ineke & Benjamin are so kind and friendly & it’s a beautiful location to go for hikes and walks. Will definitely return.

Brilliant experience, great hosts. Pictures cannot describe the beauty of this place.
We loved it, best sleep we’ve ever had.

This is the perfect place to go to experience the beautiful untouched Ireland.

Benjamin and Ineke were so welcoming and friendly. We will definitely be returning to Bed in Barn again.
