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 public transport near the Barn. There is a wonderful retreat vibe about the place, with plenty of opportunity for walking, writing, whatever takes your fancy really. An absolutely wonderful retreat into the Northern Ireland countryside that is sure to warm the heart of any backpacker desiring a place to chill out with a small group of friendly people. All facilities wonderful, comfy beds, plenty of towels and blankets, very clean, a 'home away from home' vibe. Definitely recommend you pay Liz a visit - particularly if you have an ear for stories.
