We stayed for three nights bed and breakfast whilst visiting friends on Inishmore. The beds were comfortable, with a fine view over the harbour and surrounding island views. The bathroom was roomy and efficient. Breakfasts were good with a choice of hot or cold food. Home cooked brown bread was excellent with ham, cheeses, etc., and fruit and jogurt. The usual fried choices and toast are also available. We also ate dinner here every night. The food was very tasty with a limited choice of wines which are not too expensive considering the island location. Service is helpful and friendly. The owner, Padraig, a retired trawlerman, is interesting to talk to and he takes a hands on interest in the business. The only niggle is that after spending several hundred Euro on dinners, bed and breakfast, a polite "thank you for staying" and "have a safe journey home" from the owner would not have gone amiss?

A simple hotel with nice rooms and friendly staff. Best part is the location. The hotel is just steps from the pier so there is no need to haul luggage across the island. It has a nice guest lounge that served us well. If you can bear the ferry ride over, I would recommend staying the night as the island is better once the last ferries head back. It's a peaceful change of pace.

My husband and I stayed here on a recent trip to the Aran Islands. We did not spend a great deal of time in the B&B, but it was great for what we needed.

It is located directly off of the ferry, and there are at least two bike hires right there. The pony and cart folks aren't terribly far either.

The room was spacious, clean, and had a lovely view of the dock/beach. There was no issue with noise as very few visitors actually choose to stay the night.

The staff was friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay again.

Friendly and helpful. Decided to check in and have some lunch. Owner called us a tour guide to take us around the island after we finished. Guide was very knowledgeable about the island.. Room was pleasant with a great view of the harbor. Quiet and comfortable.

Convenient location&great service and food. Clean&well equipped rooms. The restaurant serves fresh seafood, must try. If you're planning to stay on the island, try Pier House. We come back every year:)

We stayed at the Pier House at the beginning of August. Certainly for convenience to the Ferry and the few restaurants and bars in Kilronan it's excellent. However, there wasn't much of a welcome at check-in. We had foolishly thought that this was a small guest house which was family owned and it probably is. The young man we experienced at the desk on check-in & out certainly doesn't seem to enjoy being in the hospitality business. Rooms are clean but tired and it could do with a refresh. Good cooked breakfast and lady that runs the breakfast room does it with great warmth and efficiency. Generally disappointed but location is great and ultimately they charge accordingly.
