Fodor's Expert Review Hotel Inisheer

Inis Oirr, Co. Galway, Ireland

A basic low-rise in the middle of the island's only village, a few minutes' walk from the quay and the airstrip, this simple whitewashed building with a slate roof and tile flooring has bright, plainly furnished rooms, with pine-frame beds, pine floors, and white bed linen. The social life of the island centers on "the hotel," and there are trad sessions nightly. Larger rooms upstairs can accommodate families.

PROS

  • very clean
  • good location between pier and airstrip
  • larger rooms upstairs are good for families

CONS

  • basic standard of comfort (certainly no frills)
  • noise from the pub
