“Ireland in all its glory...”
Reviewed 7 April 2013

First of all, I cannot more highly recommend that people visit Inish Maan if they make the journey to Ireland. It's a fascinating and calming environment, and we felt that it gave us a real picture of what Ireland used to be. The people are so kind and welcoming, but there weren't a lot of them, so we felt we had some privacy. The people who were running An Dun, Nancy and Padraig, were incredibly helpful and accommodating. We arrived on the early ferry, and though they weren't expecting us until later, they got our room ready and gave us coffee and biscuits while we were waiting. The views from our room were breathtaking, and we even slept under a skylight. The food was delicious, the rooms were clean and warm, and the people were delightful. Can't go wrong if you stay here!

I need to respond to the individual who wrote "Go Hungry Instead," Inish Meian is a far-off-the-normal-tourist-path kind of place, and so is An Dun. It isn't for everyone, and it's clear that the reviewer wasn't one of those for whom it is suited. Perhaps one shouldn't expect authentic Mexican salsa in a B&B in Galway Bay. My friend and I stayed at a cottage nearby An Dun and stopped there for dinner during our stay in September of 2011. The food was fresh and delicious; the vegetables came from their own garden.Teresa and Padraig are an intelligent couple and the friendliest and most helpful people one could ask for. Even though we weren't staying with them, they helped us with details like contacting the elusive taxi driver, and finding places of interest to visit on the island.If a traveler wants more of a touristy experience, she should stay away from Inish Meian, and An Dun.

We stayed overnight with Teresa and Padraig in their comfortable & welcoming B&B. The room was bright and comfortable. The bathroom was clean with a wonderful shower. Our hosts were extremely helpful and friendly amid their busy schedule. This is perfect introduction to the magical Inis Meain. Dinner at An Dun caters for all and breakfast was a delight.

I stayed here with my 15 year son and our stay was great in every way. Our room was comfortable, good size, with great views too. We were looked after so well. Apart from our room, there was a room down the hall with a fridge and tea & coffee making facilities for use at any time. I honestly can't remember if there was a kettle in our room but it's nice to sit comfortably at a table anyway, especially during the day between outings/meals, etc

We had dinner here too and had too book which was fine. There were only a few tables, the food was fresh, local, good standard and service just right. My son has limited diet and this was not a problem/issue, no drama - such a treat.

We'd both stay here again and hope it won't be long. Thanks.
It did take me some time to register so it was actually August 2010!!

Well, if you want to enjoy something special - special place, special accommodation, special dinner and reasonable prices, you have just one choice in county Galway - Inis Meain and An Dun B&B!

The place is somehow "electrical" - at the beginning you might say - so what - just walls - but if you go along for 5 hours and you know that nobody knows the real purpose of the walls for sure, you feel sort of "terrified" and than the windmill begins to move and you hear the noise of it + the sea + no people around = amazing!

One recommendation, do not try to find a short cut across the walls...

And at the end of the day you meet very nice people - Teresa/Padraig in An Dun BB and you have something delicious for dinner = just a perfect day!

This is the perfect spot for you to stay while exploring Inis Meáin.

We were there for two nights and couldn't have felt more welcome and comfortable. Our room was great -- my favorite during our trip to Ireland -- and the food was terrific. To have some home cooking while on the road is a real treat.

I would return again in a minute, and have no doubt that you would enjoy your visit. My only regret is that I could not stay longer.

and Padraig for your hospitality. You were ever so helpful on our recent week on Inis Meain. Dinner was delicious...soup from the garden, vegetables and the beef stew! Now to the tart, mouth watering and fabulous homemade lemon ice cream with a drizlze of caramel. Oh my!
All this when season is over, and you had no other guests!
I look forward to seeing you again.
