JOHN A. O'REILLY FRIAI ARCHITECT
The house sits at the base of Turlough Hill, overlooking the lush green valley of Oughtmama, in the Burren, Co. Clare.
The ruins of a "clachán" (an old settlement cluster) remain on part of the site.
The house adapts the tradition of the "Classic House" in the Irish countryside - a simple clean form with its internal rooms regulated by classical proportions.
The main living space occupies one large, high-ceilinged and light-filled space overlooking the valley below.
Bedrooms are overhead and a Studio adjacent.
The house sits in its commanding position with quiet dignity, as befits its occupants.
