You will find the Breac.House B&B in the harsh, rugged landscape of the Horn Head peninsula on the northern tip of the Republic of Ireland, with sweeping views of the Atlantic Ocean and the Derryveagh Mountains. The design of the houses integrates it with the landscape and provides for flowing transitions between inside and out. Its dark wood panelling, reminiscent of traditional timber longhouses, draws on the colours of the surrounding rocky heathland. The shape of the roof was inspired by the profile of Muckish Mountain which the B&B looks out onto. Each of the three double rooms offers views of the coast and includes a private terrace. The communal heart of the house is the open plan living room with a kitchen, dining room and fireplace. The double height dining room offers beautiful views across the bay. The high-quality interiors were made from local natural materials by Irish craftsmen and include custom-made oak furniture, hand-woven tweed textiles and handmade crockery.

Why we like this house
A modern retreat in a dramatic landscape - connected to Irish traditions, but very contemporary.
