As unique Airbnb's go, a restored 200 year old church is pretty impressive - and it's right here in Ireland.
Based about twenty minutes from Galway city, Bookeen Hall offers a private room with a king size bed and a single bed with a private bathroom. Sounds ideal for you and two friends but if there's a bigger group of you, the listing says it can accommodate 5 by making a second room available.
It's €105 per night between 3
A continental breakfast is available each morning and best of all? It has two dogs!
A description of the Airbnb reads:
The guest bedroom available to visitors has access to its own bell tower/reading room with great views of the surrounding countryside and private bathroom complete with claw-foot bathtub.
The church is ideally located for day trips to Connemara and the Cliffs of Moher and Burren region.
What to expect: a restored church – with a light, bright and homey feel to it. It’s also home to a greyhound called Mouse and a lurcher called Birdy who can’t wait to meet you!
Make sure you bring a car - the nearest train station is 8 miles away.
Galway's a beautiful spot with loads going on so it might be worth checking out for your next weekend trip. Obvs, Hozier 'Take Me To Church' will have to be added to the road trip playlist.
