The Barn, 2 miles from Glenties , is a two storey self-catering studio with a double bedroom. It is very peaceful, and is nestled into a hillside, surrounded by trees. It is not far from the long sandy Narin beach and the Wild Atlantic Way. Short and long walks are nearby. Guests can sit in the garden and relax on sunny days, or warm themselves and relax by the wood stove when it is chilly.

This was just what we were looking for. Quite, country side, driving distance to lovey things to see and do. Fiona was super friendly and helpful. Would definitely go back!

Just perfect. Be aware, you risk to want to stay there. For the price, by far our best accommodation in one month in Ireland: the most quiet (country), the warmest, the most complete (kitchen, two rooms, documentation...), close to the village(s) if needed . The quite cheap. In brief : honest. The real concept "air bnb", far from the slumlords who teem in Ireland.

After visiting Belfast, Derry and the major tourist highlights we where looking for something that would fell as a home away from home to get some rest. The barn had all we had hoped for. It is a really cosy please, surrounded by beautiful nature and Fiona is a really warm hearted, interesting and welcoming host.

the barn is a special living place with what we needed or might need, and thousands of other things. The reception was in her house with the herbal tea we like and cookies. We had nice conversation, and got good advice about what to do. She brought us by car to a place from which we could walk back. We walked the next evening with her and nice dog Bessie.

Response from Fiona:
Thanks for your response..and useful comment I have noted what you said about the kitchen. I sometimes get someone else to clean, and may now should do it myself. Sorry about that.

If you're looking for peace and tranquility, look no further than Hardy's Barn. Great location,but near enough to Glenties, and a short drive from the amazing Narin Beach. Fiona is the perfect host. Warm, and welcoming, and a pleasure to meet. Will definitely visit again.

I have spent over 20 years working in Africa, Asia and the Middle East, usually for charities, as a community health specialist. For the last 10 years I have been working here for the Health Service on behalf of asylum seekers and ethnic minorities. I am now retired. I love travelling and meeting people, and am interested in development issues, human rights, anthropology, history, and international affairs. Wildlife, animals and the environment are abiding interests. I fell in love with the beautiful and unspoilt Donegal and its people some time ago, and after finally settling here have been slowly restoring and renovating my traditional stone two storey house and barn
