Once you retire, you climb the ladder down into the one room underwater chamber and watch the fish swim past your window.

The accommodation includes twin beds, kitchen equipment, a 10-litre can of fresh water, refrigeration and a dry toilet. There is no electricity but there is lighting and a portable gas heater. Fishing is not permitted from the hotel deck.

You can take the room only, including breakfast or a half board option. Alternatively you can take a dinghy ride to the town for dinner.

This hotel is open from 1 April - 31 October each year and it is advisable to book well in advance. Rates vary but approximately €120 a night.
