What an adorable bed & breakfast! And the breakfast was amazing! The accommodations were perfect! Great locale. You will thoroughly enjoy staying here, that's for sure! While in the area take a boat ride out to Skellig Islands.

Mary and Jim thought they'd seen their last summer visitor until we turned up, but they kindly opened up Room 3 and we thoroughly enjoyed our brief stay - including of course the fabulous Full Irish for breakfast. Mary also worked her charm on Pat Joe Murphy who took us - and 10 other brave souls - on his boat... More

The Shealane House is a fantastic B&B. Upon arrival, we were warmly greeted by Mary and shown to our room. Our room had views both East and West (as well as a wonderful view back to Portmagee) allowing for both Stunning Sunrise and Sunsets. Our room was spotless, extremely quiet and so comfortable! A huge bathroom! We stayed for two... More

Jim and Mary were amazing hosts, so friendly and helpful! The accommodation was beautiful and so clean. Stunning views from both our room and the breakfast room. Just a few minutes walk from Portmagee, which makes it the prefect location if you are planning a trip to the Skelligs. I would certainly recommend the Shealane Country House to anyone.

Mary and Jim are wonderful hosts and make everyone feel like they are in their home away from home. We stayed here two years ago hoping to get out to Skellig Michael but the weather wouldn't allow it. We decided to try again this year and Mary helped it happen by arranging the boat trip for us. We stayed here... More

This is a really suberb peaceful place to stay in a stunningly beautiful area. Absolutely everything is positive. It's a good centre for exploring Valentia Island and, of course, a trip to the Skelligs.

This B&B is a great find - located on Valentia Island it is a must for travellers who want a home from home. The welcome we received from Mary & Jim was second to none. They were so friendly and accomodating - I wish we were staying longer. Our room was superb and the Bed was the best we slept... More

Shealane Country House is one of our favorite B&Bs ever. We stayed two nights in mid July. The room was spacious, nicely furnished, and equipped with all the little things you could possible need to make your stay comfortable. Most importantly, it was extremely clean. Free wifi worked perfectly. Wonderful breakfast selection with beautiful view on Portmagee. Mary and Jim... More

What a nice place to stay! Mary was very helpful when planning our trip and made many suggestions to my wife for our trip that started in Dublin and took us thru Cork, the Ring of Kerry and then up past the Cliffs of Moher, Doolan and then back to Dublin. Breakfast was terrific, the room was very nice and... More

Everything about Shealane was wonderful, including the hospitality of Mary and Jim Lane. The location on Valentia Island is great, with fabulous views of the fishing village of Portmagee over the bridge. We were treated to those great views every morning when we had breakfast in the beautiful sunroom with windows on three sides. The breakfasts were delicious, with a... More
