I would like to totally disagree with another review made recently. I stayed myself with my 3 boys and booked directly with An Dun as i read the terms and conditions on trip advisor before our visit. My boys are 9, 6 and 3 and we couldnt have felt more welcomed on arrival. We stayed in a downstairs room which was more than adequate and was easy accessible for the children going in and out. We were collected at the pier and helped with our luggage,given loads of useful information on where to visit and had gorgeous food to which each of my children cleared their plates. I felt that because it was a family run business we felt more at home and we will definitely be visiting again.

I booked B&B at an dùn for one night for my 5 year old son and I on 8 August. This was done via agoda, via booking,com. Immediately before arriving i noticed on the property's website that over 12 years old were welcome. I hoped I wouldn't have a problem with my son, but it quickly transpired that 5 year olds were not welcome. I accept that my booking was not made directly, but the intermediary should not have booked me to such an establishment. I explained that I'd booked through agoda, and she replied she doesn't use them. I then had to hand her my agoda booking to prove otherwise. Not a great start. On arrival the owner explained that she doesn't normally take children because they have wooden stairs. On entry my son ran up the stairs to which the owner remonstrated 'see what I mean'. He then asked me where our room was as a tired five year old would, to which she said 'SHHHH' sharply. She then explained that people come to inis maan for peace, which made me wonder whether children were welcome on the island at all. We were led into our room which had 3 beds. The owner then said I'd expect you to use two beds, and would have to charge you more if you used all three. I had to reply sharply that there are two of us, we will need just two beds. As it was the booking was for 126 Euros, just for B and B. The only saving grace was that she then tried to source alternative accomodation, which we then found ourselves. We were glad to leave an dùn - they did not deserve our custom. As inis maan is a small island, we passed an dùn thenext day. My 5 year old son asked me if that was where the not nice lady lived - I think he has got over it now.

I have delayed responding to your review as I was upset that you found our concern for childrens safety as a negative attitude to children. We welcome families at An Dun and our policies for their wellbeing should not be ignored. In relation to price it was you who selected a twin room for 2 adults ( which is just one door away from the main road ) and this is why it is best to contact us directly for families with children under 12. Making a booking via 2 agencies is unnecessary and never a good idea. The owner of the other B&B did call us back and agreed to hold the room for you and we transported your luggage there. I hope your stay on the island was enjoyed by you and your son dispite the unavailability of the family room at An Dun.

Thank you for making time to review your stay at An Dun. Sorry for the delay in thanking you, as you can understand this is due to the workload of a small family run business during the summer months. Again we really appreciate your review. Teresa & Padraig.

We returned to An Dun after 13 years and it certainly didn't disappoint! We stayed for 2nts BnB and had dinner both evenings. We had a double ensuite overlooking the sea(see pic 1) equipped with all you need for a comfortable stay. Theresa and her family were very welcoming and kind, served beautiful meals right throughout our stay. There was plenty of choice (hake highly recommended). Inis Meain is such a wonderful place to explore on foot or by bike. If you enjoy nature and outdoors in a less touristy setting than the other 2islands then this is the place to come. Looking forward to our next trip to An Dun already😀
