The Sea Barn in Ballinful was absolutely stunning. The house and property are gorgeous and so comfortable. The views can't be beat. The house itself was fully stocked with everything we needed and more. The hosts were so kind and welcoming and made us feel like family. I cannot say enough great things about this property. If you are traveling anywhere close to this location, you MUST stay here. You won't regret it!
