I live in Chicago, IL and this is my second visit to the South Aran House and I couldn't imagine staying anywhere else on the island. Enda and Maria are lovely hosts that greet me with such warmth and excitement. The B&B has many great qualities, as an adult I very much appreciate. The rooms are quiet and clean and coffee/tea are always available by the fireplace. If I decide to come home late from the pubs or go out in the wee hours of the morning, there are flash lights available (which I didn't think to bring my first time there). I'm able to access WiFi in my room, making it a real treat to be able to FaceTime my family back home and show them my breathtaking view of the island. The food! Every dish I chose was just as tasty as the last. From scrambled eggs with chives/coriander to Haddock, chive/cheese tart, Crab Linguine, to a gourmet burger. You can't just stop at the entree, have a piece of the Aran Apple Cake with a cup a tea! The restaurant provides flavor and creativity in their menu, you are not being served just fish/chips here! The best part for me was the great conversations I had with Enda and Maria. Every day when I arrived for breakfast and dinner it was like I was arriving at home and we could all exchange what happened or what we saw during the day. You are not just treated like another guest here, you are treated like family. I look forward to coming back next June and catching up with my other family on Inishere.
