With the best views on the Island by far and the nicest beach just a quick walk away this is one place not to miss when taking a trip to the Aran Islands. The cottage oozes character and the hosts are extremely welcoming and accommodating. Breakfast was great and we had a number of cups of tea and home baked... More

Joe and Maura are wonderful hosts. My wife and I spent 3 days 2 nights exploring Innishmore by bike. We enjoyed the lovely accomodations as well as the wonderful cooking of Maura. We had dinner both nights it was wonderful. We enjoyed the peaceful and tranquil stay and it will truly be a shame if they sell. I know they... More

Globally, we had a very nice experience at the Man of Aran Cottage. The food was litterally amazing, Maura and Joe are great and very welcoming. The cottage is very charming but would need to be tidy up a bit, missing a bit of organisation. Garden is covered of bad things while it could be very attractive at the entrance... More

This place was absolutely wonderful. I chose this place to spend with my parents for my mom's 60th birthday last week. It's a few miles from the town which is great because it's quieter and less busy, but still easy to get to and from town by biking or catching a ride on one of the buses going by. The... More

We absolutely loved our two nights at the Man of Aran Cottage! (July 29-31st, 2014) Our hosts Maura, Joe and Desmond were lovely and very helpful. They arranged bikes for my son and his girlfriend and had great customer service. The view is spectacular right on the sea amongst a beautiful garden. If you want the real Inis Mor experience,...

The cottage is picture postcard quaint. We were greeted with tea & cakes on the back patio (which has waterviews & flowers). It is a short 10 min walk to the blockbuster fort and located next to a white sand beach. There's a seal colony nearby (about 10-15 min biking). Dinner was fabulous- cooked perfectly, fresh, local food. The hosts... More

What a wonderful introduction to island life we received as guests of Maura and Joe. They made sure we had everything we needed from wonderful meals to bike rentals. The grounds were beautiful with gardens bursting with color surrounded by welcoming sitting areas to enjoy the breathtaking views of the water. You will feel like you are stepping into the... More

I'm so glad that we stayed with Joe and Maura. Although Inishmore is a small island it still gets quite busy in the main town/ferry dock area. Man of Aran is located away from all of this but still very close to the main attraction on the island. There is also a beautiful beach located a very short walk away.... More

My husband and I stayed here for two nights. First of all if you are looking for a city with many pubs then do not come to this island! This whole island is quiet. It was a wonderful getaway from the real world. Joe and Maura were both great hosts. We were greeted with tea and coffee. Maura also gave... More
