The most beautifully decorated B&B we visited in Ireland. Everything from the linens, to the bedding, to the decorations were high quality, tasteful, comfortable and elegant. Breathtaking view of the bay and the mountains from the fabulous windows in the very solidly constructed home. Annette, her family, and her staff were friendly, inviting, and made a magnificent breakfast for us.... More

My family and I stayed in two rooms at this B&B for 2 nights. We all loved it. The beds are very comfortable and we slept well. The house is very beautifully decorated. There is a very nice view of the ocean from the front porch and from the rooms. The owner is so friendly and she made us all... More

Lunch menu really well rounded with a selection of dinners and small lunches eg. filled croissant or toasted sandwiches. Crab claws beautiful and coffee excellent. Setting just exquisite and seats outside to enjoy sea view. Quiet and relaxing, all-round great food and service!

I stayed three nights at The Shores, which is an impeccably appointed and beautifully styled house. Breakfasts are excellent and the seaside location, a few kilometres beyond Castlegregory is sublime. This amazing b&b is also excellent value for money (as of now, one of the two best I've stayed at) and it has my strongest recommendation. Signage is not the... More

My family and I had a wonderful stay at The Shores Country House. The house was warm and inviting, and the room charming. The ocean views were stunning. The food was exceptional and the presentation was that of a 5 star hotel. The service was friendly, informative, and welcoming. We only wish had been able to stay longer! I would... More

The whole B&B looked very American. Our room had a balcony with view of the beach. The room was very comfy and included a TV. The breakfast had to be ordered the day before, but we could choose from a wide array of different breakfasts. The B&B had a nice parking space in the front. The price was a little... More

Situated out in the middle of nowhere with a view you could kill for this is heaven on earth. We got a very nice room and met by Annette and her daughter. They also served us an absolutely perfect and amazing 3 course dinner! It was truly a perfect evening. Breakfast was equally as good and huge. They are the... More

My husband and I stayed here for two nights with our son, who is heading off to college this fall. The Shores is a beautiful gem in a gorgeous setting. Every detail is right, from the comfortable beds to the world-class, gargantuan breakfast. Our room was lovely, and we also enjoyed an evening drink in the snug sitting room as... More
