A New Chapter

From 2023, Inis Meáin Restaurant & Suites is evolving into something new, to give the team the opportunity to also run Inis Meáin Knitting Company.

As we develop a new website for our new offering from 2023, please note that the rest of this website refers to the Inis Meáin Restaurant & Suites offering which is no longer available as of October 2022.

The Restaurant is now closed, however the Suites will form part of our new Island Stays from 2023.

There will be 2 properties available for small groups for longer stays of 5 days/4 nights.

The Stone House will sleep groups of up to 8 guests in four Burren Suites, with the Connemara Suite evolving into a beautiful and very spacious communal living area for the Stone House.

The Boat House will be a new addition. It is a sensitively renovated, standalone, two ensuite bedroom property, near to the Stone House, that will be available for groups of up to 4 guests.

These high-quality, design-led properties form part of a 70 acre island estate, including a working Burren landscape farm with cattle, bees, hens, vegetable growing, and biodiversity preservation. As such, our new stays will offer guests the opportunity to immerse themselves further in the nature of the island, and spend time together deep in a unique and unspoiled landscape.

The Island Stays will be curated to enhance the guests appreciation of this special island location, and while they will be self-catering or vacation rental stays, there will be extras included and options available, like a daily delicious dinner option to enjoy communally in the Island Houses, daily Kitchen Servicing, Exploration Kits including bikes and everything needed to explore the island's ecology in full.

Final details are still in the planning and therefore reservations for 2023 are not available as yet.

Reservations will be offered to the most regularly returning guests to Inis Meáin Restaurant & Suites first, and then will be launched through our Newsletter before the end of 2022.

We hope we might have the opportunity to welcome you and your loved ones for our Island Stays in the future. Please sign up to our Occasional Newsletters below, if you haven't already, to hear when reservations are launched for 2023.

Wishing you a good winter ahead in the meantime and many thanks to everybody who supported a wonderful 15 years of Inis Meáin Restaurant & Suites from 2007 to 2022.

Le gach dea-ghuí,
Marie-Thérèse & Ruairí de Blacam
