Our only regret was that we couldn't stay longer! Our hostess, Annette was wonderful. We were traveling with our teenage daughter and she offered us the two story on the right of the house. It had a small kitchen, living area with day bed, an upstairs bedroom and a bathroom. Very cosy and perfect for the 3 of us. It... More

We had been here in 2011, and now we wonder why we waited three years to come back. Annette runs a magnificent establishment where everything is of the utmost quality and nothing is too much trouble. My wife is a cleanliness fanatic, and even she was impressed by the standards. And you've never had a breakfast until you've experienced the... More

During our two week tour around Ireland, we stayed at a different hotel or B&B nearly every night. This was by far the best of the best. The location is great for exploring the Dingle Peninsula. The view of the sound is very good and the service is first class, friendly and knowledgeable. We even had dessert, (small pastries), served... More

We spent a couple of nights at this elegantly furnished B&B with a lovely beach view. We stayed in a ground floor room left of the entry door. Comfortable bed and delicious breakfast. Many thanks to Annette and her staff for their friendly hospitality.

Annette runs a wonderful B&B. The view of the ocean was brilliant. Everything was spotlessly clean. She is warm and attentive. The breakfast was simply outstanding and tailored to your personal preference each day. The room and bed was very comfortable. Even the internet worked well. The location is on the north side of the Dingle Peninsula which is very... More

Annette, her staff and her wonderful home are all amazing. We have just returned from a 3 night stay and I can't thank Annette enough for her hospitality. This is a 1st class truly 5 star B&B and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone wanting to get away from it all for a few days and to be... More

Annette has created an absolutely elegant, yet comfortable (3 day)stay for us, giving us wonderful recommendations for things to do/where to go, and how to do it in the best way. She recommended a magical evening at a nearby hostel where the the locals gather to share their love of Irish music. One of the highlights of our trip. We... More

Myself, my husband and 3 children had reason to visit Castlegregory for a family get together recently and stayed for one night with Annette at the Shores. We had a lovely family room. The welcome and service were all excellent, and the breakfast the following morning was as good as any 5 star hotel. Our only regret was that we... More

We and our friends booked 2 rooms for a 2 night stay in early May 2014. Annette's gorgeous home offered us a warm and beautiful respite during a 3 week trip through Ireland,Scotland and Wales. As other reviewers have commented, everything was suburb; the rooms are so well appointed and comfortable; the breakfasts are unbelievable; everything was perfect. No wonder... More
