Great meals, beautiful site-seeing and stimulating conversation with the assortment of International Guests who also found their way to Ballyeamon Barn. This is the place for a lifetime experience in the... More

I love staying at Liz's barn. Nowhere will make you feel more welcome and at home than Ballyeamon. Facilities are excellent and the warmth of the hosts, the friendly atmosphere and the sessions on a Sat night make this the perfect place to stay to visit the North Coast.

My cousin and I accidentally ended up at Liz's place 2 years ago. We were researching our Weir relatives and thought that accommodation owned provided by a Weir was too good to pass up. Had a great time. Liz was wonderful.

The Ballyeamon Barn is a gorgeous hostel right on the cusp of Glenariff Forest Park and a stone's throw from the Causeway Coast. The owner, Liz, is a storyteller by trade and is an absolute sweetheart - her concern for me was something I have never before found in a hostel, with Liz very kindly transporting me to and from...

The Barn is a great place to stay, its a people place and without doubt Liz and her team are characters. Liz is what I would describe as "large capacity" person, by this I mean she lives and breathes hospitality and her passion for people is without measure. Picking me and my friend up in Cushendall was an act of... More

This is a must, singing, poetry, Irish dancing done by a Canadian on he night I was there, story telling, jokes and the best of Irish hospitality from LIZ. Will be bring all my Australians visitors here. The location is to die for out in the middle of a beautiful glen away from noise and pollution.
