Great location100% of recent guests gave this home’s location a 5-star rating.

The barn is a long vernacular stone building nestled in a quiet valley near the Wicklow border with a wood floored huge interior space (about 20 x 5metres) and a large open fireplace. It sleeps up to 18 people comfortably and is mainly used for yoga retreats and low key family gatherings so not suitable for parties or boozy gatherings.

We had a great stay at Ruth’s. We had a big family gathering. Nice location, peaceful, nice long walks close by. Communal space was fab. Plenty of room to lose yourself in if you wanted to. We saw the Bat both nights !

Response from Ruth:
So glad you enjoyed yourselves and seeing the bat both nights is unusual, I hope no-one minded! We found a dead bat in the kitchen during the week and I think he was the only one so we may now be bat-free after all these years.. Thanks for the feedback and hope to see you in the barn again, Ruth

A beautifully renovated old barn in the middle of the country side. Good facilities although the house could have been cleaned better. Lot of space for children to play both inside and outside. The place is perfect for bigger groups. Thank you!

The photos do not begin to do this place justice! It's an amazing renovation, Rustic but with bathrooms and kitchen finished to quite high standard. This is the perfect place for spending time with people. There are so many cosy places to settle in and just chat, a great kitchen …
