This is as authentic a pub in Ireland as I encountered. The lamb stew was brilliant on a cloudy, rainy day. We made multiple stops here for a refuel during our exploration of the island. Always something new to experience. Recommended.

Stopped in the bar here for lunch during our day trip to Inis Oirr. The pub is very large and has obviously had lots of money spent on it - really lovely condition. We had a great lunch - food excellent, large portions and nicely presented.

Recently spent a night on inisheer . Have to say Tigh Ruairi seems to be the only business on the island that gets the concept of customer service . The owner was always present when we visited in contrast to the two other pubs both of which seemed to be run by young staff with hangovers and no interest .... More

Great time had on Inisheer for four days. Lovely hotel, great food, music every night at the weekend. Recommend highly! Can't wait to return. Would recommend the bike hire if you're able as it's a great way to see the island, but if not hire a pony and trap for some expert guide from owner.

I stopped here before returning to the mainland. The waitress was very courteous and let me charge my cellphone at that bar. All the personnel was courteous and accommodating. The goat cheese salad I ordered was a touch above the par, and the outside seating had nice views over the area.

Stayed here and got a lovely room. Great check in experience and top class food and service on the island. Great buzz in the bar and superb staff. Really good breakfast and really sound advice about what to see and do. It is ideal as its only a ten minute walk from the ferry.

When you come to Inis Oirr, or the other two Aran Islands, you have to leave your mainland hangups and expectations at home and accept the islanders and their way of life for what it is - relaxed, stress-free, basic and wonderful! Tigh Ruairi is highly recommended for the quality of its cuisine. I had dinner there almost every evening... More

What a welcome, red carpet treatment in earnest. Unfortunately I didn't get to stay there as it was full. That did not affect the welcome we received as a family attending my nieces wedding.Everything was perfect the meal was served to 72 guests piping hot, plenty to choose from. Many children attended and they were catered for with ease. There... More
