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

We loved this place, it might not be for everyone - it is remote, but we loved it and our guests from Korea and America loved it too.

Hi Sarah, we really enjoyed our weekend; felt like the benefit of having the splendid isolation of a remote island, while also having some great nearby countryside and villages to explore too. Look forward to seeing you on our next visit.

Really great spot, rustic and secluded with amazing views, perfect getaway location! If travelling with little ones one thing to be aware of is that the bedrooms are all seperate from living spaces. And pathways between buildings are steep and can be slippery in wet weather. All …

Response from Sarah:
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
