Presume by the title you mean real Bothies as opposed to bothy websites?
The only other ones I know of are private or in other terms "locked",anyone
wishing to stay in them would either;have to know the landowner or keyholder,
or have to pay (holiday cottages disguised as bothies,can be quite common).

There's an open bothy in the northern Peak. On Ronksley Moor, east of Bleaklow. Not the best, but I've stayed in worse. Seems to be more used for lunch stops than overnight stays. Has an especially entertaining log book.

there are quite a lot of bothies not belonging to MBA and rarely advertised. Some pretty spectacular ones too

Not aware of any bothies in Ireland...i assume you mean the Republic.
Land ownership and access is quite different to UK and a stark contrast to "freedom to roam" enjoyed in Scotland.
They are very protective of their land and "private" does mean private.
Some great walking and cycling. Ring of Kerry a good area but as i say not aware of any "open" accommodation......some great ruins in great locations but don't think you would be made welcome.
If anyone knows different i'd be pleased to hear.
may yir road aye rise tae meet ye!
