“Our eleventh year here- that is a good mark”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 July 2011

We have stayed here for the last 11 years at least 10 days and it is fantastic every time. Especially because Vilma takes so good care of us. The food is delicious, nature fantastic, the air, Atlantic see and everything gives us strength to cope with the days between our stays.

Our visit was only for two nights, but we will definitely be returning on our next trip to Ireland. Vilma is a fantastic host, and Tig Congaile is a jewel. The accommodations are comfortable and attractive, and we enjoyed our discussions with Vilma on hers and our travels.

Tig Congaile is a special place in a special place. Inis Mean has a wonderful feeling of peace and serenity and Velma the cook and proprietor of Tig Conaile gives the same vibes. She loves what she does and it shows. Her soups are famous using fresh garden vegatables and her own quirky sense of flavors that work everytime. She made sea lettuce tempura (gathered it herself from the beach) for us one evening and it was SUBLIME! I am sure that she infuses all her food with love as everything tastes like your favorite Gourmet Cook Auntie made it just for you! Our room was very very nice and unfortunately I don't have photos of it or the bath due to a missing sd card. But if you plan on spending any time here this is the place to go...it just feels so right..... Thanks Velma for everything!

Vilma is the best cook on any island! Not unusual ingredients but what she does with them is WOW. She does grow her own produce and is known for her seafood dishes and healthy cooking. The desserts were fantastic too. After each meal she makes a point to come and chat and she is just a really lovely person!!
The rooms are clean and simple, ours had an ocean view. The beds old, but comfy. Our shower had vacillating pressure and we weren't sure how to use the electric shower so ran out of hot water, but that was our fault because we kept forgetting to ask how to work it.
There is a living room with satellite TV and bookshelf available as well as a sitting room without TV. Free WiFi hookup in the front part of the house. IE: living rooms, dining rooms but not our private room. There is also a beautifully warm fireplace in the dining room that Padrac made sure was kept going as the weather was so cold and rainy.
The new pier makes Tig Congaile a 20 min walk as opposed to less than 5 from the old pier so don't be surprised.
