Their is no review to be done on this accommodation. Gobnait and Paraic had this hotel on lease for three years and it was a pleasure and welcoming place when they had the hotel. Unfortunately they finished up two years ago and the place has been locked up since. It is sadly missed as it it close to the airport... More

The building is very simple and basic, and so are the rooms (at least ours was) However it is very clean, the couple managing the hotel is very nice and friendly, and the breakfast is very abundant (albeit eggs are often with too little salt) The pub in the hotel is nice because is a meeting place for locals

We recently stayed here at the Inis Meain hotel. The building itself is simple and architecturally unexciting but every effort has been made to ensure that you are getting a 5 * service. It is spotlessly clean and we had a very comfortable stay. The views from the rooms are amazing looking out over the island. It is great value.... More

Would highly recommend staying the Ostán. Very friendly couple who will go out of their way to ensure that you enjoy your stay on the island. Irish is the language spoken and Gobnait and Padraic are very encouraging, even if you have very little/no Irish. Rooms are simple with all you need for a comfortable stay. Perfect breakfast and the... More

A fine place to stay: after a long walk exploring the island, it was lovely to sit by a coal fire with a cup of tea. We had not made any reservations, so faced an empty pier (end of Sept 2012) but a local farmer carried us in his tractor bed (quite an experience!) to the hotel. This island is... More
