Ard Mhuiris
Ranked #8 of 21 Inishmore B&B and Inns
Reviewed 16 July 2017

The Ard Mhurisis B&B was around a ten minute walk for us from the pier. The sign says 3 minutes, and it may be for young people but not for us dragging luggage for a month long vacation. All together this was a good place. Our room was in need of some repair. There was a sliding door on the bathroom that was broken. If you closed it when you went in, it jammed and was difficult to reopen from the inside. The breakfast was a very good typical Irish breakfast. It is located a short walk from the main town area which made it very pleasant for my wife and I. It was also a short walk to our favorite pub, Ti Joe Watty's. We were fully content with our choice of Ard Mhuriis and would stay here again if we returned to the Aran Islands.

Room Tip: We would not have chosen the very front room if we had been given a choice.

Two families of 2 adults / 2 kids we stayed here 1 night. We had a family room (1 double, 2 singles) and two double bed rooms. The booking was made by our Irish friends who had a connection with the owner so I can't comment on the cost. The place was clean, comfortable and warm. The owners very friendly and accommodating. The location was good, about a 5 minute walk to the ferry terminal and town. When you see them making the bread for breakfast from scratch you know the food will be good, and it was. They happily stored our luggage on the day we left as well. All in all a great spot to stay.

My family and I stayed at Ard Mhuiris for just one night. It was comfortable and clean, but not much to write home about. Everything works relatively well, excluding the bathroom door in room 1. However, the breakfast was a 4/5, with delicious tea, muesli, and scrambled eggs on toast. A nice place to stay for 1 or 2 nights when in Inis Mor.

My 2 sisters and I stayed here for 3 nights at the end of June. It is easily reached by foot from the ferry, even with suitcases. Our room was on the first floor which was great. Wifi was available in our room. It was very quiet and Cait is a wonderful host. We were as comfortable as could be and enjoyed our stay very much!

We were travelling to the red bull cliff diving in June, and had booked 3 double rooms for the Friday and Saturday night. we arrived on the last ferry of the evening having travelled from Belfast, Dublin and Longford, and made our way to the B&B. we were met at the door by the man of the house who announced that he saw us coming up the small road to the house and 'hoped we weren't coming to him', as he was fully booked. he had clearly realised his error before we even reached the door.
they had double booked, and there was no beds available. at this stage his wife appeared at the door and her first line to him was a whispered 'don't let them inside'.
they then point blank refused to accept that we had made a booking. they point blank refused to accept that we had even talked to them on the phone, despite the fact that we could show them a call log showing 3 phonecalls to their number on consecutive days in April, and a screengrab of their details. she simply kept reiterating that we had no booking, and that we were in the wrong. she even claimed that they never take a booking for a Friday - despite the fact that they were clearly double booked.
they lied to us, they denied blatant facts and truths and were totally unwilling to even address the issue.
everyone can make a mistake, but when you do you put your hand up, take responsibility, and try to some sort of resolution. they never even offered us to make a few calls on our behalf, or at the least give us a few numbers of other residences that might have been able to help our situation. remember we were stuck on a busy tourist island in holiday season, after the last ferry had left, with no clue of our surroundings.
they were too cowardly to admit to their error, and she was certainly too rude and obnoxious to care about where and what we were going to do. we simply had the front door shut on us.
they are unprofessional in their operation, she is extremely rude and unfriendly in her manner, and for an island that prides themselves on its hospitality, ard Mhuiris makes a very very poor impression. I hope nobody else has the misfortune to suffer the level of incompetence, unhelpfulness and bad attitude that we had the misfortune to encounter. she, in particular, should not be working in the service industry, given her appalling attitude and manner.
