Four of us stayed here and we could not be happier. The owners, Mary and Jim made us feel very welcome and had arranged the boat journey to Skellig Michael for us weeks in advance. Right after we had booked the stay, we had first e-mail contact from Mary, offering her help with any questions etc. we might have. Breakfast... More

We didn't look at any review when we checked into the Shealane B&B. What a wonderful surprise. This is an excellent accommodation for a B&B. Big, airy, clean and comfortable room with big and well functioning bathroom.Jim and Mary are such friendly and warm hosts. They even gave us some Irish whiskey for the night cap when we couldn't find... More

It is a really good place to stay! Good quality-price. Well connected, just crossing the bridge from Portmagee to Valentia Island. Kind and friendly treatment. Very clean, nice and spacious rooms and bathroom. A lot of amenities. We had a really good night and comfortable sleep. Also it's worth mentioning the delicious breakfast we had the next day.

We have just finished a two week tour of Ireland staying in 8 different B&B’s, all priced between 60€ to 80€ / night. I want to start by saying that every single accommodation was more than adequate and I would certainly not put any of them below a 3 rating. One important point is that on-site parking was an essential... More

Mary was a lovely host and her home is beautiful. Great location, very close to Portmagee and the Skellig Experience.The room we had was gorgeous, it felt like being in a tree house and the showers was amazing, so hot and with great water pressure. Mary helped set up our trip to the Skelligs, which was great! And the tours... More

Short break at this brilliant B&B. The weather wasn't that great but Shealane was and made for the most relaxing break. A bright modern cheerful house on a hill just near where the causeway joins the island. There is free off road parking outside Our modern and refurbished room had windows on 3 sides each with a stunning view. It... More

We came to Shaelane for one night as part of a weeklong trip to Ireland with friends. It was recommended to us by the boat operator we used to visit Skellig Michael. Shaelane was by far the best bed and breakfast we had in our trip. The rooms were clean and comfortable with excellent water pressure in the shower. The... More

We spent three nights at Shealane in September which were magnificent. Apart from the location and beautiful views which are stunning, we felt so warmly welcomed by Mary and Jim our hosts. The room was spacious and very comfortable with views of Portmagee and out to the ocean. This was a highlight of our time in Ireland and recommend it... More

What a wonderful place to be able to spend a week! The location of Shealane Country House is fabulous -- on Valential Island -- within walking distance across the bridge to Portmagee on the mainland with its lovely shops and pubs. So many sights to see locally on the island but also convenient for day excursions to other wonderful nearby... More

Very welcoming and helpful hosts. The breakfasts were very good and the view from the Breakfast Room wonderful. We stayed for three nights which is about right for exploring Valentia Island. It was tempting to sit in the Breakfast Room and soak up the view and the relaxed pace of life.
