Inis Meáin Restaurant & Suites

Inis Meáin, the middle and most isolated of the Aran Islands, is home to 160 people – fishermen, poets and creative loners. Visitors here will be rewarded with peace and wide-open panoramic views. Ruairí de Blacam and his partner Marie-Thérèse have established an unusual form of B&B on Inis Meáin: the hotel and restaurant are designed as a continuation of the landscape, shaped to resemble a small ship anchored on the shore. There is nothing superfluous in the rooms, but everything here is totally exclusive – such as the view from the 10 m panoramic window in each of the four suites. In the kitchen they are renowned for their experimentation with natural products found on the doorstep: fish and seafood, berries, vegetables, lamb and chicken are on the menu daily. A particular highlight is the dessert made of seaweed with a wild berry sauce!

A retrospective of de Blacam and Meagher’s work was exhibited in the Irish Pavillion at the 2010 Venice Biennale.
