The boat has everything you could wish for from a comfy bed to a full kitchen and a homey living room.

The property in the heart of Wicklow is built into the hillside under some Scots pines and surrounded by green fields and woods.

While we admit we’ve never even considered a sleepover in a church, we quickly changed our minds after checking out Bookhen Hall.

It truly is one of the most unique Airbnbs in Ireland for couples – and thankfully the exact opposite of this terrible Airbnb in Galway.

Surrounded by woodland and fields, it was built in 1820 and used for services for almost 200 years before being converted into a cosy holiday home.

Waking up in your king-size bed, expect splendid countryside panoramas through the large gothic windows. And you even get your own bell-tower!
