... the food is very good quality and probably the best value on the island.

Tigh Fitz

Over 100 years ago Penny Fitzpatrick's grandfather opened his bar in the village of Killeaney on the Aran Islands, little knowing then that the island's airport would be a few fields away.


This long property looks on to Teampall Beanann, dated 846 A.D. and reputedly the smallest church in Europe.


Penny extended and refurbished the house a few years ago, creating the luxurious rooms she now offers, all with tea/coffee making facilities, TV, direct line phones - and great views of sea, airport, and fields full of wild flowers and contented cows!


There's a comfortable sitting room in the house - and, although the bar has now been closed, the food is very good quality and probably the best value on the island.


Menus have a broad appeal - minute steak, Cajun chicken or chicken curry - but are most notable for fish, bought from a local fisherman, and a speciality Aran-style bouillabaisse.


Simple food, great cooking.

Rooms 11 (all shower only). B&B about €45, ss €20. Children welcome (under 3 free in parents room, cot available by arrangement, baby sitting arranged). No pets. Walking, cycling, fishing. Garden; children's playground. Restaurant open Mon-Sat, 12-6.(Will also cook dinner for groups, on reservation) Restaurant closed Mon. Guesthouse closed Nov-late Dec. abbreviations
