What can we say - room, breakfast, view, Jim and Mary - all fantastic!!! Just a short walk across the bridge to Port Magee and very close to the Skellig Experience - well worth a visit. Private parking, very quiet and safe. We would go back ANY time.

Beautiful house with an excellent hostess. Mary was so helpful, giving us suggestions on things to do in the area. The house is amazing; has great views from all sides and the room was top notch. I would say this was better than a five star hotel I stayed at before, with really fluffy towels, in room tea items (even... More

A trip to Ireland would not be complete without staying here. Mary and Jim are gracious hosts and pay attention to detail. Our breakfast was absolutely wonderful, and the views from the dining room left you lingering. I could have sat there all day. Thank you for all the recommendations on things to do and places to eat. Will definitely... More

Just returned from a great weekend in Valentia Island. What really topped it off was this lovely B&B. Mary and Jim who run the B&B are so lovely and very welcoming. From the minute we arrived Mary couldn't do enough for us and gave us very useful tips about what do do in the local area. Mary also arranged for... More

Mary and Jim make you feel right at home. The place feels brand new, but is well-established. Beautifully decorated and perfectly equipped. The view from their breakfast room is like none other. I would highly recommend the Shealane, and I will return as soon as I can!

Mary and Jim welcome you into their lovely home as if you were their best friends or family. Our room was quite large with a lovely sitting area, en suite big bathroom, views of the ocean and mountains from every window. The Breakfast room is all glass and the views are amazing. Breakfast was anything from cereal with local rhubarb... More

We stayed here for one night on the 26th Aug 2015. The B & B is in a great location, walking distance from the village of Portmagee. It suited us really well as we were getting an early boat trip to the Skelligs the next morning. Mary and Jim are lovely people, very welcoming and run a very clean B... More

We loved staying at Shealane Country House -- it was the perfect place to explore Valentia Island and minutes away from the boat to Skellig Michael, which was an incredible outing. Best of all was Mary -- she gave us such a warm welcome, had a great sense of humor, and was always there to give us helpful tips and... More
