This was my first visit to Inis Meain and definitely won’t be my last. This B&B is situated in the most idyllic setting, right in the heart of the island. Upon arrival we were greeted in the little café with the offer of tea/coffee, and even though we arrived early they still welcomed us to check into our room, as it happened to be ready.
The B&B itself is operated by a lovely family. It’s really clean and you can tell they take great pride in their business. The rooms have soft fluffy white towels with a nice comfy, yet hard mattress. The sea view from our bedroom window was magnificent. They do a pretty epic full Irish fry in the morning and the set-dinner menu uses their own home-grown veggies. I particularly liked my berry crumble, with fresh tiny blackberries from the garden, yum! They also serve a selection of beers and wines.
The B&B is within walking distance to the church (2mins), pub (5mins) and is right next door to J.M. Sygne’s thatch cottage, who wrote ‘Playboy of the Western World’. You can also walk to ‘Synge’s chair’ which is a 5 minute walk to the top of the island overlooking Inis Mor. There are seats here to sit relax, paint or write – so beautiful.
During the day the B&B is a real stop-off spot for cyclists, as they serve lunch in the little café. Overall it’s the perfect setting, ran by a really friendly and accommodating family. Already I look forward to my return trip.
