Inis Meain Restaurant & Suites

All the best places to eat, shop and stay in Ireland. A local guide to local places.

“People here lead a very simple life” Ruairi de Blacam explained to The New York Times, in 2018, about living, working and cooking on the little island on Inis Meain. True enough, but Mr de Blacam might have said that he and his wife and partner, Marie-Therese, have created a simple life, and that it is this which they offer to diners and guests at Inis Meain Restaurant and Suites. de Blacam’s food appears elemental – scallop ceviche with toasted almonds; lobster bisque; carrots with chives; turbot with spuds – yet this culinary simplicity has a power that goes beyond the pure, gently coddled flavours that you find on every plate. Eating on Inis Meain is a stunning experience – the room, the setting, the sunset, the cooking, Marie-Therese’s service – and it will still be haunting your head weeks after you have returned to the mainland.
