Good Hotel Guide Review
Emerging from the landscape, Ruairí and Marie-Thérèse de Blacam’s sustainably run stone-and-glass restaurant-with-suites is a design-led sanctum in a remote Gaelic stronghold. An exploration kit has all the essentials: bicycles, fishing rod, swimming towels, binoculars, nature guides, maps, hotpot lunch in a backpack. Appreciating the scene is only part of it; succinct menus exploit produce from the island, the restaurant greenhouse and the surrounding waters, with such dishes as lobster with aioli; beetroot carpaccio; lamb chop with salsa verde. Local materials – wood, lime, stone, and wool – form the linear architectural bedrooms; each has vast views from a private outdoor seating area. Breakfast is delivered to the door. 40-minute ferry from Ros a’ Mhíl; 7-minute flight from Connemara airport.
