Slemish Barn

Slemish Barn is a newly opened boutique-style hostel offering budget accommodation for up to 18 people in four ensuite rooms and situated in the Braid Valley between the award-winning floral village of Broughshane and the picturesque fishing village of Carnlough, in the shadow of Slemish mountain where St. Patrick is reputed to have lived. This area isknown as the Gateway to the Glens and is only a short distance from Glenariffe.

There are excellent facilities for walking, cycling, fishing and outward bounds activities in the area.

Self-catering cooking and laundry facilities are provided as well as catering options for groups.

Slemish Barn can offer facilities for functions, small conferences and parties with two large function rooms and other meeting rooms.

We have strong connections to traditional music in the area, specifically the Counties Antrim and Derry Country Fiddlers Association which is one of the largest traditional fiddling schools in the island of Ireland which celebrated its 60th anniversary in 2013, and Slemish Barn aims to establish itself as a cultural centre for arts activities in the area.

We also have a strong sustainable theme with significant green energy systems and the building has been built and furnished with reclaimed and second-hand materials where possible.
