2017 Restaurant Reservations

The restaurant serves evening dinner only, and is open to non-staying guests on Wednesday, Friday and Saturday nights. Advance reservations are necessary and further information about the restaurant is available here.

It is necessary to stay on the island overnight to visit the restaurant. While our suites are fully booked for the season, links to alternative accommodation options on Inis Meáin are available in our FAQ section.

Please email us at with your preferred date options for dinner, the number of people in your party, and a mobile phone number and we will respond as soon as possible.

2017 Suite Reservations

The suites are completely booked out for all of the 2017 season.

If you are thinking about a suite reservation in the future, it may be helpful to know that the suites have been booked out since February and are likely to be booked out earlier again for next year.

Suite Cancellations

Should you be interested in availability arising through cancellation, a waiting list is not available, however any availability that arises is made available on the Availability Calendar below. This is worth keeping an eye on if you have the flexibility to travel on a wide variety of dates, or last minute.

2018 Suite Reservations

Reservations for 2018 will be officially launched in September and if you would like to be among the first to hear about this please subscribe to our occasional newsletter here.

The season will run from Friday 23rd of March to Sunday 7th of October 2018, booking will be available online only and full details for the 2018 season will be available on launch.

Further general information about staying at the suites is detailed below.

Inis Meáin Restaurant and Suites has just five suites and a short season. Established in 2007 and with a large returning guest contingent, by now we are receiving thousands of booking requests for the few hundred reservations we can take for the suites each year. We are very grateful for this and especially love to see friends returning. However this means that the suites are generally booked out and a stay needs to be planned a long time in advance.

Inis Meáin Restaurant & Suites is located on a remote island with a particular set of logistical considerations. To ensure an optimum experience for our guests, what we offer is a little different to what can be found elsewhere. Therefore, please note the following when considering a suite reservation:

  1. 1. Three Stay Types are offered as follows: a. Midweek Stay 2 nights on Mon & Tue or Wed & Thur b. Weekend Stay 2 nights on Fri & Sat c. Long Stay 4 nights from Mon—Thu or Wed—Sat

  2. 2. The suites can only be booked online with prepayment below.
  3. 3. If your party requires multiple suites, each suite needs to be booked separately online.
  4. 4. From 2017, to preserve the quietness that guests are seeking more and more, bookings with children under 12 will only be accepted from families who have stayed with us previously, and only from one family at a time.
  5. 5. Guests with gift vouchers with a value of over €200 can book directly using our Contact Form.
