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.

We booked a trip to Inis Oírr last minute and were fortunate to find an available room at Hotel Inis Oírr. The room was lovely — large in size with 3 velux windows in the roof, a good size bathroom and all in excellent condition. The hotel is located a short walk from the port.

The hotel service, however, is fairly disorganised... We arrived at 3.45pm and were told that our room was ready and given a key, only to walk into an open room that had not been cleaned! Reception was apologetic and we walked around for 40 mins and bought some Man of Arran fudge (highly recommend!) and returned at 4.30pm to check in. Very long waits for breakfast with only one person looking after all residents and doing her best. If it's not possible to add another server, then it would be more practical if residents could help themselves to juice, milk, butter, tea, toast etc (as we'd been able to in other hotels), but perhaps this is the hotel's COVID protocol. We arrived at 9.10am and only got our breakfast at 9.45am... If checking out at 11am, I suggest arriving at 9am on the dot to get your order in first. A nice touch that breakfast to order (we had full Irish and French toast) is included with all room rates.

Bar was idyllic in the evening with a trad session outside.

Paper thin walls, so don't book if you're a light sleeper or can't cope with noise from other rooms and outside.

Recommend the hotel if staying in Inis Oírr, but be prepared to be patient!

This was the friendliest hotel i have ever stayed in, nothing was too much trouble, food was fresh and extremely tasty and so was the breakfast, and well presented, the staff were A1 and the hotel was spotless. Our room was lovely the decor was modern and relaxing, we even had a wet room.
Locals were friendly and the craic was mighty within the guidelines.
Inis óirr is really beautiful...
I would love to stay forever...thank you inis oírr hotel.

The location was nice, rooms were comfortable and food ok.
You may want to avoid if you are not fully vaccinated as staff didn't wear face masks when serving food. Guests were also permitted to wander freely around the hotel without masks. It did affect my comfort level that these safety measures weren't being enforced. If they could improve their Covid safety measures it would be a better experience overall. I wish I had known this in advance of my visit as I might have changed provider.

Having arrived off the Doolin ferry and walking up to the hotel, we were deciding whether to have a bite to eat or hire a bike first. My 7year old daughter was looking to use the toilet and my wife asked if it was possible to use the loo. The rudeness and attitude fro a staff member was atrocious, but it made our mind up, that we would definitely not be eating there. So we went to Neds pub just down past the harbour and were welcomed with a Proper Irish welcome. I fully understand toilets are for customers use,as a business owner myself, but I would never turn away a potential customer or a child from a basic human right. Judging by other reviews, the rudeness seems to be a common theme by the hotel. Head to Neds pub or to the Seaweed cafe just past the football pitch, both have excellent staff and fresh food and drinks. All served with a Smile

We originally booked for 2 nights but phoned well in advance to cancel our second night due to unforeseen circumstances, the lady Toma Flaherty who I now know is the owner was so unprofessional on the phone , very snappy, borderline aggressive. The service in the restaurant is very slow. Food isn’t great. Basic. We also got
No sleep. A group staying at the hotel. Shouting and roaring outside our windows well into the early hours then were staying above us, running around and stomping. We had two young children trying to sleep.

If you’re under 25 don’t bother going they won’t even look at you. We sat outside for over an hour trying to get someone to take a food order and they just kept saying we’re busy and we’ll get to you when we can. They served other people food and drinks and just ignored us. Food wasn’t even great either from the night before. Eventually we decided to leave and as soon as we got up they came out to take back the menus and that was it no apology nothing. Infairness the men behind the bar were lovely but the servers were rude and not interested in working at all.

To be honest, the Inis Oirr people in general perhaps need to be a bit more welcoming and appreciative towards summer income and visitors. Our experience was that workers and locals in and around the hotel were no more or less than ignorant, rude and to be honest, no more welcoming than as if we where no more than invaders. Staff were rude, locals very standoffish , the musicians playing obnoxious and in general we wouldn't go back

We went to Inis Oirr on a day trip last Friday. We had a great day on the island until we decided to get food at the hotel bar. When ordering food, the lady that served us couldn't have been less helpful and actually rolled her eyes when we asked about where we could sit. We then waited nearly 40 minutes for food that eventually arrived when my husband had to go and ask for it again. I got a chicken and stuffing sandwich but after one bite I had to leave it there, it was awful. My husband got a toastie, but he also couldn't eat his. We weren't even given cutlery when the food arrived. We will not be returning.

We arrived off the ferry and wondered what we would be greeted with in our room as the island is quite basic but it was fantastic. We had booked twin ro and got two double beds in a large quiet room at the back of the hotel. The downside was the bathroom, it was wet room style and boy did it wet the whole room!!!
Bar and food were pleasant enough if journey like a large open area and food was as expected when they have to ship everything in but the mash potato was vile.....tasted like smash.
Breakfast was disappointing no full breakfast menu available, service staff hardly understood what you asked for.
Would I stay here again. Yes maybe, think I would ho to the pub where we eat on the second night though.

Just stayed for three nights. We had a ball! The rooms are lovely and beds are comfy. Bar food and service was great however the breakfast service was bad on all three mornings. The breakfast waitresses need a shake they are so airy fairy, the two of them havnt a clue what they are doing. Never seen anything like it in my life. I won’t get into details but I left to go to the deli up the road after 40minutes of waiting.
