The designer take on island life


Marie-Thérèse and Ruairí de Blacam’s multi award-winning chic, yet rugged restaurant and suites on Inis Meáin is reopening for the season on March 30th. Better still, to celebrate Year of Design 2015, the couple is launching a range of home- and giftware, so you can bring a little naturally inspired elegance home with you. From tableware to chopping boards, jewellery boxes to deck chairs, the collection includes glassware, and leather and canvas bags too. Available for guests to purchase, the range will be for sale online in summer. Prices start at €125 for a teak letter stand. A two night stay in the suites starts at €456 for two, with a daily hotpot lunch, bikes and fishing rods.
