Inis Meain Restaurant & Suites
Working with his own produce grown just outside, and caught just outside, the Inis Meain restaurant in the pristine sea salt air of Aran taught Ruairi de Blacam that his role “as a chef is to stay out of the way.” That’s the very Zen approach to cooking – and to hospitality – that Ruairi and his wife, Marie-Therese, take at Inis Meain, and it has made for the biggest success story in Irish hospitality: booking a room here verges on the impossible. By annihilating his culinary ego, Ruairi lets the food speak, and chances are that you will say of the scallop with hazelnut, or the lobster with beets, or of their own potatoes – especially the potatoes! – that they are the best things you have ever eaten in all your life.
