We chose the Pier House in Kilronan for our one night stay in Inishmore, because it had great reviews and because of its proximity to the ferry because we were leaving on the 8:15 am ferry back to Ros a Mhil. We arrived at about 11:30 am, and it was no surprise that our room was not ready yet. We were able to leave our bags in the guests' lounge, which didn't sit very well with me as I knew we would not be back for many hours as we explored the island and my iPad was in the bag. Needless to say, when we did return 7 hours later it was just as I had left it.
There are several bicycle hires right next to this B&B, as well as trap and pony rides and several bars and pubs, which overall made it a handy location. I will say that when you do rent a bike there, check your tires. Many of the tires are terribly worn and I thought that they would burst at any moment! Also, most of the seats you can just switch out... so look for one with a wider bottom ;)
We had room 4 which directly faced the ferry pier and gave us a wide view of Galway bay. We had dinner in the restaurant at Pier House and the meal we had there that night was probably the best dinner we had in all of Ireland that week. My husband had the cod and I had the chicken. The vegetables that came with it were fresh and steamed and not riddled with butter or sauce. The bread we had there was also very, very good as well.
The only negative item regarding our stay was that the full breakfast service in the morning didn't start until after our ferry departure. A continental breakfast of cheeses, cereals and fruit was available to us that morning, however. If the dinner was as good as it was the night before, the Irish breakfast was sure to be sensational as well. We would return to Pier House on a future trip.
