Connell's Barn is a beautiful stone building dating back to the 17th Century and was in existence during the famous Battle of the Boyne in 1690. The Barn has recently undergone an extensive renovation and has been converted into a truly unique home. It is ideally located for visiting the many historical sites in the beautiful Boyne Valley, as well Dublin city and Belfast. It's only a short drive to New Grange, Battle of the Boyne, Hill of Slane, Millmount and many more amazing sites...

I'm a furniture designer and have a passion for cleverly designed and beautifully made furniture and objects. I hope this passion comes across in Connell Barn and House, which has been lovingly restored over the last two years. As well as designing furniture I also have a very keen interest in vernacular architecture both in Ireland and Scotland. I have worked on restoring many period properties during my career, but Connell Barn and House is the first one I actually own!
I am a very keen cook and love nothing more than cooking for my three young boys, lovely husband and extended family. I love gardening and I especially like growing vegetables and herbs.
We lived in Scotland for ten years, before moving back to Ireland in 2012. We always spent our summer holidays travelling around England and Scotland, I adore both countries for their beautiful countryside, architecture and history.
My all time favourite movie since I was a kid is Out of Africa (Robert Redford and Meryl Streep need I say more!) and my favourite Irish TV show is Dermot Bannon's Room to Improve. I love all kinds of food but my husband's fennel and butternut squash risotto is pure comfort food to me.
I live twenty minutes from Connell Barn and House, so I'll always been on hand to help out guests and answer any queries. I'm very house proud, so the Barn will be squeaky clean when you arrive!
