I've been here twice and although I haven't managed to stay yet I can tell the restaurant is a thing of some beauty. The look, location and aspect are something else. With seating for 12 or 14 and looking out over Galway Bay it reminds me of the bridge of some beautiful liner. The food here is a wonder and...

Okay - the suites and restaurant have been open for ten years and we have been talking about going for a few years now and have just made it over. Closed for 5 months a year, requiring a 40 minute ferry crossing or an 8 minute flight from 25 miles east of Galway, situated on an island of around 160...

I stayed here for two nights with my wife on a weekend stay. We both loved it. It certainly isn't cheap but it offers great value for money for what you get. I would recommend it in a flash. The suite we stayed in (one of the Burren suites) was spotless with a perfect bed and amazing views. We really...

We've stayed in Inis Meain several times since it first started. It is the most amazing place anyone could wish to stay in, amazing welcome, carefully considered decor, great comfort and a stunning landscape. Dinner is carefully made with local ingredients. Don't waste money on a swanky hotel - stay here and fall in love with the outdors all over...

This was our favourite place to stay. Every detail of this place has been carefully thought out - from the architecture to the rooms' decor and furniture, to the materials used in the furnishings. The 'breakfast box' was a revelation and a delight - with delicious terrine, breads, yogurt, fruit and more. It was a welcome change to be able...

It is not cheap, but forget about the cost; this small hotel provides exceptional value and a unique experience. A quick list of attributes: unbelievable exterior and interior design; sensational restaurant; best box lunch anywhere; breakfast in your room serenely looking out over the island while sitting at the room-length desk; great advice on what to do - you absolutely...

The staff and facilities at Inis Meain Restaurant and Suites are incredible. The location is stunning and every care has been taken in the construction of the site and the way it runs, from the delivery of breakfast each morning and the provision of a backpack with hot soup so you can wander all day on the island. Dinner was...

This place is fabulous and we will remember it for a long time! Everything has been said before but the warm welcome, the rooms with the amazing panoramic views, the wonderful dinners (go for the full dinner - the portion sizes are perfect!), the flasks of soup and focaccia for lunch, all the little extras and attention to detail are...

We are just back from a fabulous two night stay at the Inis Meain Restaurant & Suites. The island itself is the joy of the visit, but the beautifully designed suites & delicious food make it even better. We were collected from the plane by Ruairí, our host and chef. Unfortunately the weather had us six hours behind schedule (not...
