Where to eat
Ostan Inis Meain (Hotel Inis Meain) is in Lisheen
Village. Coming from the harbour the large pink building to the left is
the hotel. It is the nearest place to both the port and the airport for
food and accommodation from breakfast to closing time. Panoramic views of
Tig Congaile, in Moore Village (20 minute walk
straight form pier, first left, then right, then left, and right again), is
a Bed & Breakfast and Restaurant that offers scenic views and cuisine by
the renowned chef Vilma, a Guatemalan lady whose food is not to be missed on
visiting this tranquil island. The place is easy to miss.
Inis Meáin Restaurant and Suites offers luxury accommodation and fine dining. It consistently receives five stars on Trip Advisor and is the Travellers Choice 2013 Winner and has won numerous other accolades. The restaurant dining room is contemporary in styling and has panoramic views of the island and bay. The main ingredients used in the restaurant are sourced on the island. Lobster and crab are caught by local fishermen from currachs. Potatoes and vegetables are grown in small fields sheltered by stone walls. The only fertilizer used is seaweed from the shore. The restaurant is open seasonally for dinner only. They also operate the knitting company which offers very high quality Aran knit clothing.
An Dun B&B and Restaurant (opposite the big stone fort just beyond the church.) is a spotless inn with very friendly hosts who will provide a delicious dinner in the evening if you let them know them before mid-afternoon.
The island has a single and very fine pub, Teach Ósta, in More Village.
