Bothar Bui is nestled on a secluded hillside overlooking Kenmare Bay on the Beara peninsula in the heart of Ireland’s scenic South West.

Designed by renowned Irish architect Robin Walker, this unique modernist assemblage of historic farm buildings and contemporary structures works as a rare family holiday retreat. The house makes the best use of its quiet location, surrounded by 12 acres of indigenous oak woodland leading down to a small harbor with private shoreline

This is going to be an honest review. There are massive positives and a few negatives with this house. If you are looking for an off the grid escape this is the spot. The location is remote and lovely. The house was designed with perfect views in mind. It is so unique in its layo…

Thanks for your feedback Pat, all noted. As it's such an unusual layout with all the different buildings we work on the house constantly, repairing, painting, clearing etc, it's an ongoing labour of love! We love the old furniture, the original kitchen dresser, tables and súgán chairs, and we like our homemade couches on wheels:) The old Irish rugs have huge sentimental value so we keep them to try and hold onto the spirit of the house but we have new Irish handmade rugs too! We try to keep the listing very accurate and the rates very affordable. Best wishes, Sarah
