2016 Season

Suites for the 2016 season are fully booked, however from time to time availability through cancellation may appear on the Calendar, or you can let us know through the Contact Form a range of dates that may suit you and we will endeavour to let you know should we receive a cancellation for those dates. The season finishes on the 2nd of October.

2017 Season

Reservations for the following season are usually launched in Autumn. We are currently updating our website to facilitate this. Please request our newsletter to be notified of the launch. The 2017 season will run from the 27th of March to the 1st of October.

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 each year. For that we are very grateful and especially love to see friends returning.

However in such a tiny business, unfortunately it is not feasible to have a full-time office team to personally respond to all requests, so we have designed a very comprehensive website which should answer 99% of all questions, and we show updated suite availability on our Availability Calendar below at all times.

To avoid guests booking early to secure dates and then cancelling later, our cancellation policy has had to become more stringent for 2017. We are also moving to Online Booking with prepayment only for 2017 for smoother operation of reservations.

We operate a very transparent business, there are no tricks to get a booking. Reservations are only available directly through our website. No travel agent or other website can book Inis Meáin Restaurant & Suites for you. What you see is what you get, so we ask prospective guests to please read all of the information here.

What we offer

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 a balanced atmosphere for all guests, 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 as before. We will be in touch about additional details once we have received your online booking.
  5. 5. Guests with gift vouchers with a value over €200 can book directly using our Contact Form.
