The Boat House is where the traditional Island Boats or Currachs were made and repaired until recent years. This important heritage has been part of its renovation design into a luxury house of 130sqm, accommodating one group of up to 4 guests.
The Boat House has 2 generous ensuite bedrooms, and like the Stone House, has been furnished to the highest standards with custom-designed solid oak furniture and specially commissioned Irish Art. We were delighted to work with friend and Artist, Sarah Walker, who developed two very special paintings especially for the Boat House, based on her own stay there.
The two bedrooms have solid oak superking beds, which can be prepared as twin single beds instead, if required. Each also has drop down solid oak desks, beautiful slatted oak wardrobes, and ensuite bathrooms with Philippe Starck white wear with either a walk-in shower or bathtub.
There are extensive island and sea views from a large picture frame window in the open-plan living room, overlooking a private west-facing garden that includes a custom Herb Barbecue and outdoor seating made using our unique local stone craftsmanship.
