Bothar Bui is a very unusual holiday home designed by renowned Irish architect, Robin Walker. It is comprised of six separate buildings clustered together on a hillside over an indigenous oak woodland running down to the sea. A few minutes walk takes you to a small harbour and private coastline.

The house is made up of an original old farmhouse with two out buildings converted to comfortable accommodation and three purpose built buildings, two of these designed as sleeping quarters with bathrooms and the other a large room,' the studio' which is a big living room, ideal for parties or relaxing and enjoying the view. All the new buildings have floor to ceiling glass windows with magnificent views over the Kenmare Bay and the McGillicuddy Reeks Mountain Range.

The house was as described and more. There were only 2 of us but you could comfortably have fitted over 6 times that. It was like travelling back in time, the kitchen cottage was so quaint and cosy, and had everything you would need. The bedrooms were warm and comfortable, and all had beautiful views. The whole place was secluded and serene. Every room had breathtaking views and so much character. The sunken baths are so relaxing and the studio is a fabulous place to sit and paint/read. We took a walk through the forest to the shore which was lovely but other than that couldnt bear to leave. Sarah was very friendly and helpful. She met us in Castletownbere and we were able to follow here up to the house. There was a bottle of wine, marmalade and chocolate left there for us! So thoughtful, and much appreciated. It is truly an inspiring place to visit and by far the nicest place we have ever stayed.
