We had an amazing stay in Karla's place. We were met by Karla with lovely fresh scones and a warm welcome. We were given lots of information about things to do in the area. The place was spotless and cosy. Shops and lovely Spire restaurant right on the doorstep. We would definitely come back again. Amazing find.

Even with all the photos available, they don't do the Barn justice. It was extremely clean on arrival, and Karla was there to show us all the nice features inside this beautiful place. The modern conversion makes it a very easy place to stay in, but all the attention to the little details set it apart from others. Just staying here will give you inspiration for your own home, and I'm glad I did!

Karla's barn renovation is amazing! The best holiday home we've stayed at. There was plenty of space for our family of four, and the kitchen is well stocked for cooking or just a cup of tea. Duleek is an ideal town to stay in while seeing the sights in the Boyne Valley - Karla's suggestions for things to see and places to eat were spot on. It was also the best shower we've used in a long time! We can't say enough nice things about Karla and this barn.

What a unique, cool place to stay! As you can see from the pictures, the rooms are incredibly decorated and super clean. The Barn was really warm and had everything you needed! The Barn is located just off the centre of Duleek town, yet the Barn is still remote and peaceful and no noise, so a perfect location. Karla was a great host, super friendly and helpful and great communication! Would strongly recommend this place!
