Heir Island is famous for a handful of reasons, and food is definitely one of them. At HI House we hope to continue on in the great tradition of Heir Island and West Cork cuisine, we provide an array of options in the lodge or in our sister restaurant Pizzheiria. Eat Heir Island style


The Heir Island House breakfast experience is served from 8.30a.m. to 10a.m. Our full & hearty traditional Irish breakfast incorporates the best West Cork gourmet has to offer. Guests can add on a hot breakfast during the stay as our continental is included in all pricing.

For those looking for a lighter alternative, we have a range of healthy low-fat, low-carb offerings for your perusal.


PizzHeiria is our very own wood fired oven pizzeria balancing Italian cuisine and Irish produce to provide a truly unique dining experience.


The Island Cottage Restaurant on Heir Island has been in operation for over 30 years with John & Ellmary, advanced booking is essential but cancellations can always open up a spot if our last minute guests are lucky!

Ballydehob, Skibbereen, Baltimore, Sherkin and Schull can boast some amazing pubs and restaurants which we are happy to recommend based on our guest’s personal preferences.


At HI House we specialise in group trips, we have been hosting retreats for over 10 years on Heir Island and pride ourselves on fully sustainable & vegetarian group packages
