Relax in the tranquil Long Barn
The Long Barn, in Reen, is nestled in a couple of acres of organic garden on a headland surrounded by the sea. Close to the end of a long boreen that leads to a deserted beach, the Barn offers the ultimate refuge from hectic schedules and busy lives.
The ambience is rustic – thumblatch doors, wooden floors throughout, exposed beams, old but solid furniture – but with no compromise on comfort – powerful shower, fully equipped kitchen with most modern appliances. There is central heating and plenty of radiators to drive away the chill and damp, or a wood-burning stove if you’d prefer the rustic/romantic ambience.
Swim, kayak, walk, or just sit, mesmerised by the crack and spit of the fire, a book, unopened, on your lap.
When you are refreshed and ready to face the world again, visit local farmer’s markets, or eat at restaurants offering everything from the best fish and chips to Michelin-starred fine dining, all within half an hour’s drive. See spectacular scenery, be entertained by the many seasonal festivals, take a sailing or powerboat course, go sea-angling or whale watching.
