2022 Season: March to October

2022 Stays

Island Retreat Stays from September to March inclusive

The Island Retreat Package is the only stay offered during our open months from September to March inclusive. It is a 4 night stay on Monday through to Friday, inclusive of dinner each night and 2 Island Experiences.

These stays will offer our guests a more in-depth experience of the elements that make a stay in Inis Meáin special, at times of the year when there are very few other visitors on the island.

The Island Experiences although included, will be optional and will last approximately an hour each and could be for example a visit to our beehives or vegetable gardens or a farm or landscape tour, hosted by Ruairí or Marie-Thérèse, or a visiting special guest.

2 night and 4 night Stays from April to August inclusive

During these months we will be offering 2 night and 4 night stays as detailed in the General Suite Reservation Information below. The Exploration Rates for these stays are exclusive of dinner which needs to be reserved when booking the suite online.

General 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 that is also sustainable, what we offer is a little different to what can be found elsewhere. Therefore, please note the following when considering a suite reservation:

  1. There are four stay types: - 4 night Island Retreat Stay (September to March only)
    Mon to Thurs inclusive with 4 Island Dinners & 2 Island Experiences
    - 2 night Midweek Stay (April to August only)
    Weds & Thurs
    - 2 night Weekend Stay (April to August only)
    Fri & Sat
    - 4 night Long Stay (April to August only)
    Weds to Sat inclusive.
  2. The suites can only be booked online through our Availability Calendar with prepayment.
  3. We can cater for a group with 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. To preserve the quietness that guests are increasingly seeking, bookings are accepted for children over 12 only.
  5. If you have a gift voucher for a stay, to make a reservation please email us at post@inismeain.com with your gift voucher number (these are no longer available to purchase).

Our Exploration Rates are the minimum rates necessary to ensure Inis Meáin Restaurant and Suites remain feasible. As a tiny, seasonal business in a remote island location, our considerable additional costs have to be covered by a very small number of annual bookings.

Please note that there are no classic or standard rooms, just 5 suites of a minimum of 50sqm, and we can open only for the high visitor season from March to October inclusive because of island logistics.

Since opening in 2007, we have reinvested into the restaurant, the suites and the island every year, striving to exceed the expectations of both our wonderful returning and new guests, while providing a welcome source of employment and activity on the island.

Having purchased an island farm in 2019 to which we added livestock and bees over 2020 and 2021, we look forward to continuing to support the island's biodiversity, landscape, employment and community into the future.
