Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Peace and Bliss awaits you in An Dún. Teresa and Padraig are wonderful hosts. They are the dream team that make this hotel work. Beautiful rooms, stunning views, fresh linens and everything so clean. Breakfast choices are all as good as each other. Home baked breads and jams. Great coffee. Dinner is made fresh as you order and it’s local ingredients, beautifully cooked and presented. Teresa is so gentle spoken and kind. Padraig loves the chat. Both are very knowledgeable and helpful as to what to see and the best ways to get around. Several interesting megalithic sights are nearby such as Dún Conchuir, Cathaoir Synge and the writers cottage. The only pub Teach Ósta is a small walk away. For peace and quiet, long walks, fresh living and wholesome food and a genuine welcome, I highly recommend An Dún.

An Dun is a little hidden treasure trove in the heart of this small island. My first visit to both the island and this lovely guest house, i was very impressed by the warm welcome, superb locally sourced home made food, and the cleanliness of the the place. A delightful stay, and I will definitely return next year.

We stayed here for 7 nights.
Jenny and I would echo all the lovely things others have said. We would wish to emphasise Theresa and Padraig’s warmth, humour and home cooking. Breakfasts are truly amazing! Supper also excellent.
The flight to the island was hysterically funny. The pilot who was sat next to a passenger asked her if she could try not messing with the pedals! That doesn’t happen on 707 flights!
I swam most days in the clear sea along with a friendly bunch of women called The Blue Lips - such fun.
We walked for miles exploring, talked to some very interesting people at An Dun as well as a number of residents on this island. Following the mile and and a half walk back I used the steam shower which I really enjoyed. Got to have one at home now!
Thank you Theresa and Padraig for a truly wonderful holiday.

My 16 year old daughter and I stayed at this delightful B&B in Inis Meáin for 3 days. It was just a wonderful experience, not only to be on this beautiful island but also the hospitality from hosts Teresa and Paraic, who were so kind and welcoming.
We stayed in a really comfortable and cosy en suite twin room with excellent beds and the most stunning views of the harbour and Galway Bay. Breakfast was amazing - really good choice with excellent vegetarian option.
We opted to stay for dinner each night which was the best decision! Teresa is a fantastic cook, using very high quality and local ingredients - every night was a delight!
I can highly recommend this place - we will most certainly be returning!

An Dun is centrally located on Inishmaan, the quietest of the three Aran Islands, with a sweeping view of the island and Galway Bay. It's surrounded by a spectacular system of stone fences and is directly adjacent to an abandoned stone house. The ancient fort Dun Chonchuir is directly across the road. The accommodations are both lovely and comfortable, the food ample and delicious. Guest have access to a variety of areas in the facility, including a sauna! Teresa and Patrick are very helpful and gracious hosts. It was a pleasure to stay there.

Our family had a lovely stay in An Dún on the first trip we had away together in a long, long time. The rooms were spotless, and the food and service were all of a very high standard. Teresa was a fountain of knowledge about the island and my brother was able to test out her pristine banjo! We really enjoyed the tranquility of the island and we hope to return very soon. Thanks Teresa and Padraic for your wonderful hospitality!

I stayed only one night here but wish I had stayed longer. The room was spotlessly clean, with gorgeous views. The dinner was lovely, with excellent service. The breakfast was delicious, and very generous portions. The island is stunningly beautiful and so peaceful. Agus deis álainn an Ghaeilge a labhairt. I'm so glad I went, and I will definitely come back again.

We stayed with Teresa last weekend, who greeted us on arrival and advised us on all things Inis Meain. We stayed in the Lighthouse room, which was bright and spacious. Later we had dinner in their premises, which was the highlight of my trip. Such a wonderful meal that genuinely made made day; the potatoes have ruined all others for me. We were served by the very helpful and friendly Colum who looked after us for the evening and again for breakfast. A massive thank you to Teresa and Colum for the wonderful hospitality.

I can’t recommend An Dun highly enough. Extremely clean and comfortable rooms matched by superb food, with an emphasis on local and seasonal ingredients. But the winning feature is the welcome, Theresa simply could not have done more to make this a break to remember.

What airport is closest?
Answer from Widget2014
Galway, Ireland57 contributions31 helpful votes
Sorry only seeing this now. This premises is on the island of innisnmean off the west coast of ireland. I presume you are asking which airport is closest on the mainland of ireland. Shannon is the closest to fly into from the USA you then have a choice of getting a ferry from doolin or rossaveal or you can fly out of inbhrean airport in co Galway. All involve travelling by car or bus from shannon in the first instance.
Answer from anduninismeain
Inis Meain, Aran Islands.2 contributions
To walk from the airport is about 45 minutes - straight up to main road and we are just past the church, which is the centre of the island. There is usually a taxi there , this is the numbers of taxi 0872482637 or 0851509505 Happy travelling. Teresa An Dun.
