An Dun Bed & Breakfast and Restaurant
Ranked #3 of 4 Inishmann B&B and Inns
Reviewed 1 July 2014

An Dun is a lovely place, more upscale than its pictures online suggest. Our room on the third floor had stunning views is the island and the ocean. It was spacious and beautifully appointed. The food was amazing and the dining room also had great views. The owners were frienldly and helpful. It is located directly next door to Synge's cottage and across the street from the amazing Dun Conor. The island is remote, and all we did was walk to all of the many historical sites. It was quire and relaxing and a great quiet pause in our busy tip.

Room Tip: Ask for the third floor room. Just stunning views.

What an amazing place this is. I cannot thank Teresa and Padraigh enough for everything they did for us on our stay at their beautiful home. Beautiful room with spectacular views of the island, Exceptional Cuisine, all homegrown and cooked to perfection. Most of all I would like to thank them for their honest hospitality.

An Dun was a cozy and comfortable place for our stay in the Aran Islands. Inishmaan is the least inhabited, least touristy island of the three, and that is what we wanted. We didn't expect many creature comforts, but got plenty at An Dun. The food was very good, and Teresa was very hospitable. The prices seemed a little high, but considering the quality and the location, we were willing to pay without complaint. An Dun is in the center of everything--all of the hikes, the short walk to the village center, the pub, the general store. We found the beds comfortable. The bathroom was not a typical American style bathroom--water was precious, and the showers didn't stay hot for very long. Still, everything was more than adequate, even enjoyable. Don't miss out on the remote walks by skipping Inis Meain. If you're looking for touristy and easy, this island is not necessarily the place for you. All of the other reviews are pretty spot on about communicating ahead, and catch the taxi up the hill if you are carrying more than a backpack. We had no idea and just got lucky that we caught one at the ferry stop.

Room Tip: We had the suite at the top of the steps--big room with room for 4 people if 2 double up in one bed.

We were not aware upon booking this b&b that it was located on the most remote of the islands. When the ferry dropped us off, the one taxi service on the island was waiting for us and took us to An Dun. The b&b was very comfortable, the owners were very kind and the food was delicious. All the food was homemade and we were given plenty of options for our three course meal. I would recommend walking around the island, the views from the cliffs are amazing.

My mother and I stayed at An Dun for one night in the beginning of Oct. We were a bit nervous as we got off the ferry and there was nothing in site, no taxi, no jaunting car, no store....really we felt a bit alone. We chose to be brave and continue on walking up to our pre-booked bed and breakfast. Along the way three cars stopped (that was all that passed us) to ask if we needed a ride, and to offer directions. It was a quick 30 minute walk to An Dun. What a magical place. We were the only tourists on the island. Our host Paderick was wonderful, his wife was away for the night so he was in charge, what a great job he did. He made us a wonderful dinner and honestly the best breakfast we had the entire time in Ireland... request a spinach breakfast, so so good. The room is perfectly tidy with the most amazing views. We walked all over the island and saw the most amazing views. We would love to return some day. If you have the chance, please visit An Dun, relax, walk, breathe. wonderful.

I found my stay peaceful and relaxing. The island is a must see for people wanting to walk unwind and relax. The hosts were very accommodating and their breakfasts and dinner were wonderful.
