Restaurant Reservations

To make a restaurant reservation during the 2018 season, 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.

The restaurant serves evening dinner only, and is open to non-staying guests on Wednesday, Friday and Saturday nights. Advance reservations are required and further information is available on our Restaurant page.

It is necessary to stay on the island overnight to visit the restaurant for dinner and links to alternative accommodation options on Inis Meáin are available in our FAQ section.

2019 restaurant reservations will be available from January 2019.

Suite Reservations 2018

Please note that the suites are currently booked out (since last year) and a waiting list is not available. If you are interested in cancellations, please check back to the Availability Calendar regularly, as any cancellations received are made available to book online again there.

Suite Reservations 2019 - updated 20/09/18

The official launch of 2019 bookings on our website happens in the second week of October once the 2018 season ends. Full details for the new season including rates and availability for 2019 will be updated on the website on official launch.

Please note that guests staying during the 2018 season have the opportunity to provisionally reserve suites for 2019 before the official launch. These returning guest provisional bookings have been much stronger than expected, which means that remaining availability is going to be very limited on the official launch, particularly for weekend stays. This facility is offered as a thank you to returning guests and is strictly available to them only.

While we are delighted to have the opportunity to welcome so many returning guests back in 2019, we are sorry for any disappointment caused by the limited availability on launch.

To avoid disappointment, please understand that the demand for the suite stays far exceeds the supply, and it is advisable to have an alternative plan to a stay at the suites as there is a good chance that dates that you may have in mind will not be available on launch.

Please bear in mind also that as a small business with 5 suites, open less than 7 months a year because of our off-shore island location, we do not have any full time office staff so there are times when the amount of correspondence received is beyond our resources to respond to. Therefore please read the information provided on our website and auto-response emails.

We have made some schedule and other changes for 2019 to support the feasibility of what we offer into the future which can be seen below.

Please sign up to our occasional newsletters on our Contact page if you would like to be among the first to hear about the official launch of 2019 reservations during the second week of October.

Suite Reservation Information

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. For 2019, our schedule is changing and these 3 stay types will be offered: a. Midweek Stay3 nights on Tues to Thurs b. Weekend Stay 2 nights on Fri & Sat c. Long Stay5 nights from Tues to Sat inclusive.
  2. 2. The suites can only be booked online with prepayment.
  3. 3. From 2019 we will be catering for groups of a maximum of 4 guests in a maximum of 2 suites for operational reasons. If booking 2 suites they need to be booked separately online.
  4. 4. To preserve the quietness that guests are increasingly seeking, bookings are accepted for children over 12 only.
  5. 5. If you have a gift voucher for a stay, to make a reservation please email us at with your gift voucher number.
