With its unique design and spectacular full length gable windows there is nothing to match Arborita House throughout Ireland.
The House is the masterwork of a famous architect, designed to blend perfectly with a glorious landscape of trees, meadows and water. Built of mellow local stone, the house makes full use of organic materials - even the roof insulation is in natural cork. Built into the hillside the house is entered from the highest part of the site through a glass corridor. The long hallway of the west wing drops seawards through three different levels and leads to the gorgeous living room. Nearly 80 meters square the room has fabulous views of the harbour and Garnish Island.
The two wings of the house provide a total 10 bedrooms and each wing offers a spacious living room where the gable windows have glorious views of the Island. The lush beauty of Garnish's famous gardens owe their luxuriance to the benign effect of the Gulf Stream. In the mild climate of this region sub-tropical tree ferns, scarlet fuchsia and giant eucalyptus flourish side by side with ancient oaks and gigantic conifers.
