Review on An Dún

A blissful location on the little island of Inis Meáin is one of the alluring attributes of Teresa and Padraic Faherty's delightful restaurant, B&B and mini-spa. It's a family-run, environmentally friendly business that stands at the foot of Dun Conchubhar (a well-preserved prehistoric fort) next to John Millington Synge's Museum and the local church.

The restaurant now comprises two rooms – one old and rustic, the other more recent with glorious views from its windows. There's nothing fancy about the food, but it is resolutely based on local ingredients, organic island produce and seafood from the traditional 'currachs' (coracles) that work the waters nearby. Typical offerings might include braised lamb shank with fresh herbs, a trio of fish with zesty apricot sauce, and carrageen moss laced with brandy.

Home baking is out of the top drawer – everything from soda bread and scones to fruit tarts, cakes and pastries – and the brief wine list includes Concannon from the Livermore Vineyard in California (which has connections with the island).
