What the owners say

“This is a hostel 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. 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!”
