“Warm Welcome”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 September 2011

I recently took a day trip to Inis Bofin with a friend, and having walked for a couple of hours in the rain we arrived at the Inisbofin House Hotel for lunch before heading back to the mainland on the ferry. The receptionist offered to take our soaking wet jackets and had them dried for us while we had lunch, and then kindly gave us a lift to the ferry. Excellent service for patrons who were just dining at the hotel. I will definitely be having a longer visit there in the future.

Recently spent a weekend here during a storm. What a wonderful place to be. Extremely friendly staff. Excellent food. A reading room where you could actually forget where in the world you are . I also hah a salt scrub and seaweed bath and |I have no doubt that was skin was no softer the day I was born.BeautifulLwalks and beaches. I highly recommend a stay to clear the mind and nurture the soul. A must !!

Thank you for your review. We're delighted that you enjoyed your stay despite the terrible weather. We are a weather proof destination! Yes, the library is a great place to relax the day away. The seaweed bath is a popular choice and gets such good reviews. It's great to hear you left the island with both the body and the mind totally relaxed and rejuvenated.

We stayed in the Inisbofin House Hotel for a family wedding this month. Even though we are Irish we tend to usually travel abroad for our holidays. Our trip to Inishbofin has definitely changed our minds and we will definitely go back to the island. All of the staff at the hotel were wonderful and went above and beyond the call of duty to make sure that we enjoyed our stay. The journey over on the ferry was great fun - my 7 year old loved it. For the trip over to the island the weather was not good but it was a great adventure. The rooms at the hotel were lovely, shower brilliant, food excellent (get the full Irish breakfast), walks lovely and scenery has to be seen to be believed.

A big special thank you to Colin who even provided a cushion for the car journey home to my 87 year old dad!

Thank you for your review. The feedback is greatly appreciated. It's great that you enjoyed the weekend and the wedding so much. We'd be happy to have the opportunity to welcome you back again. Hopefully the sea will be a little more calm the next time! We are delighted that you would consider staying with us again over going abroad. Getting on a boat and leaving the mainland behind is like going a little bit abroad!

I stayed in the Inishboffin hotel with some friends for 2 nites. We just loved it. It started off with Colin from the hotel collecting us and our bags from the boat (We got the Rib out i would def advise it) and bringing them to the hotel. We had sea view rooms and the view was fab!! We were able to walk from the balconys to each others rooms which was very handy. We had a tripple room which was very spacious. We ate in the Restuarant on the Friday nite and the food was lovely. The meal was included in our package. Paddy the Nite porter was great when we wobbled home at all hours of the morning. He had us great sambos which saved us the next morning. Breakfast and plentiful. They had no problem reserving the Liabary room for us for some drinks before sat nites dinner. Everything was just great. Staff were all lovely and very happy to help with everything. I will 100% be back here again.

Had a lovely stay on Inishbofin Island recently, hotel staff very friendly but the hotel is way overpriced and the use of the word "Spa" is very misleading . I would love to go back when they add everything that you would normally find in a Spa!!!!!!!!!!

Thank you for your feedback, we really appreciate it, as it helps us to define and improve our branding and our product. In reference to our Spa, I imagine what you mean is that we do not have a wet area or sauna. What we do have are six treatment rooms and a relaxation area. Our treatments offer great health benefits - with treatments ranging from relaxing massages, to organic seaweed baths to hydrotherapy baths. All our treatments offer a sense of relaxation and well being. We have excellent offers available this month, e.g a midweek wellness package that comprises 3bb3d a half hour massage and a seaweed bath, all for just €245pps. Again, thank you for your feedback. We look forward to the opportunity to welcome you back again.
