“Great time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 September 2012

The welcome, hospitality, room and food were wonderful! Tig Congaile was a most welcomed and appreciated respite. When first I arrived I was cordially welcomed, shown to my room, then served a hot cup of coffee. Family members then chatted freely with me, answering questions and providing walking suggestions. All meals and service were excellent. I particularly was grateful for the anonymity allowed me. I will definitely give a "thumbs up" to my travel agent. I hope to return.

We did not stay here but enjoyed our dinner in the restaurant immensely.

Who would have thought that my first encounter with beetroot hummus would be on a small island off the west coast of Ireland. I had never heard of the combination before but, being addicted to beetroot, I had it as my starter and it did not disappoint.

The main course of pan-fried salmon was delicious as was the seaweed in batter - another new sensation for me.

Dessert was good, if not memorable, and we finished up with coffee.

The bill for two, which included a glass of wine and a soft drink, was very acceptable.

Recently we stayed at Tig Congaile .The breakfast was most disappointing. We had to make our own toast .The tea and coffee were barely warm. We had eaten breakfast before we got fresh hot coffee and tea. The Man who owned the B&B was not very friendly when my friends passed the time of day with him he replied with a grunt. The following morning we tried having a shower only to find there was not any hot water.. Although the bed was comfortable the B&B was not what we expected . We had stayed on Inis Sheer last year and expected the same standard but were most disappointed.We wound not recommend this establishment although the Island itself was lovely and worh visiting I would give this place a wide birth.

Tig Congaile is a family BB on Inis Meain; It is Bristo styled resturant with clean comfortable ensuite rooms with the grandest views of the cliffs of moher and clare and Inis oir from some of the rooms. Its a home away from home. Its offers rooms at excellence prices with arguably one of the best cooks on the Island: Vilma, an absolute gem. It is perhaps her simple and humble character that adds so much value to the experience at Tig Congaile. After any long day out exploring the Island one is treated with sumptuous meals. Its like coming home to mom's. Even if you dont stay at this BB it is a place to eat. The hostess Vilma and her daughter Maria's; friendly demeanour and conversation makes you settle into a comfortable and relaxed frame of mind quickly. On arrival Vilma had tea and oh man-the banana and peanut muffins just melted in my mouth. Breakfast offers an array of fruits, muffins, home made porridge, jams, egg and toast and even Irish breakfast. Lunch and Dinner are extra but one looks forward to the menu with earnest after any trip out. Lobster, crab, salmon, veg, seaweed, home made ice cream are some of the delicacies encountered. excellent wine availble. I without hesitation or doubt recommend Tig Congaile to any visitor to the Island, its an adventure to remember.

Room Tip: Get a room with a view. dont worry about no swimming pool or fitness centre you can swim in the atl...

We spent 1 night on the island in early July. After a long day of hiking around the island it was lovely to come back to a comfy, warm bed and friendly hospitality. We had an early boat the following morning and were greeting with delicious banana and peanut butter muffins and home-made porridge. The dining room also has a sea view looking right over to Co. Clare (weather permitting!).

Vilma, the proprietor is an absolute card, really friendly and totally hospitable.

Room Tip: Rooms on the south side have a sea view. Ask for an early breakfast if leaving on an early boat.

Bistro style restaurant and café with great wines and en suite rooms. Enhanced by great conversation (local and global) with the best cook on the island. Magnificent views of nearby Inis Oir and the ever changing sea. Make it the highlight of your day trip, your island get away, or your best cuisine night out.

Room Tip: Try for sea view

Vilma, who runs this B&B, is a gem. A real character and an absolutely terrific cook. Fresh-baked mini-muffins at breakfast - she gave me the recipe and I've made them a few times since - and a really delicious evening meal with such delicacies as seaweed tempura and home-made limoncello ice-cream, made this a place to remember. Inis Meain itself is, of course, a magical place for walks and swims and seaviews and peace. Highly recommend Tig Congaile.
