Latest Press: They have quietly built up a cult following for their delicious locally sourced food and five suites with near-monastic simplicity...Australian Gourmet Traveller May 2013
Inis Meáin is one of the Aran Islands strewn across Galway Bay, 15 miles off the west coast of Ireland. It is just 3 miles across and supports 160 inhabitants. Ruairí de Blacam is a chef and a native of Inis Meáin. Ruairí’s wife, Marie-Thérèse, is from Cork and has a business and fashion background. Together they decided to create a restaurant and guest suites on the island that would allow them to live in this special and unique place.
The project was set up with the aim of enhancing visitor’s appreciation of the island by providing a style of accommodation and dining that is complimentary to the location. The building was designed by de Blacam & Meagher architects and is inspired by the surrounding landscape. The suites are simple and understated in styling, with ample space and views. The restaurant serves good local food.
