Really enjoyed our stay with the Hughes. This is really a 5 star B&B. Beautiful place, great location, great breakfast. Good tips on local hiking from the hosts: visit the nearby park with the waterfall. Right outside the town of Kenmare

Mine was the first name in Shaminir`s guest book some 12 years ago and my several stays there since have been just as unique and enjoyable . Never mind the beautiful views of the house and from the house as nice views surround the entire area ...... more to the point is the warm reception from Joyce and the witty... More

My mother and I recently stayed in Kenmare - as we were planning to visit the Ring of Kerry the following morning. After a long day, we arrived late and Tony and Joyce provided us with directions to a wonderful restaurant (just a few minutes drive up the street - and still serving dinner). Our first floor accommodations (didn't have... More

we are four German travellers who visited Shaminir on our way to the Ring of Kerry. We have seen the recommendation of the American guy and want to write a line. The owners are really helpful and offer service by heart. But if guests help themselves by drinking expensive single malts without asking... Hospitality is one thing. Stealing is the... More

This little B&B is very nice and with its view over to the sea and the cliffs is just stunning. Joyce has welcomed us very friendly and after showing the room we were asked for a cup of coffee or tea which we trunk on the balcony. The B&B is good located to see all the interesting stuff, if you... More

This was our first trip to Europe, and we were very fortunate to have chosen Ireland and a stay at Shaminir. Shaminir had been recommended by friends here in NJ, but after reading a couple of negative reviews on Tripadvisor we were skeptical about our stay there. The accomodations, cleanliness, views and hosts were far superior to any of the... More

We only spent one night here, but wished we could have stayed longer. We had planned to be in Dingle the next night or we would have spent another day. The room we had on the main level was AWESOME !! The views of the water and island below were spectacular and the gardens surrounding the property were beautiful. The... More

I have stayed at Shaminir 5 times and it is the best B&B that I know. I stayed in Ireland 7 times and at the 3rd trip it was the first time at Shaminir. I were with friends there, and it was a very friendly welcome as we arrived. The rooms were very clean, the breakfast is very delicious and... More

Thankyou Joyce for making our stay very comfortable and enjoyable. Even watching your new chooks and the deer that was in the front garden in the morning. Sorry we didn't meet Tony as he was on his way over to England but it was a pleasure meeting Joyce and the food was lovely. Sorry we could'nt stay longer but hopefully... More
