I can't remember booking this place as i had done so at 1.45am after a night out, so i had no expectations before I got there. This was the nicest B&B i have ever stayed in and one of the best of any hotel/hostel/anything I have ever stayed in. There was a very good choice for breakfast , everything cooked... More

Mary and Jim are perfect hosts. Room was beautiful - we chose one with a sea view. Bathroom had a great shower. Breakfast was excellent - plenty of choice and good quality and quantity. Dining area has great sea views. Short walk over the bridge to a great pub with lovely food, service and live music. We could not fault... More

I and my husband stayed 1 night in Shealane house. It was our great experience for our fitst time Ring of Kerry. The owner couple was very warm welcoming, delicous breakfast and gave us good recommendation for sightseeing. Good location on the ring of kerry. The room was clean, pretty, nice decarated. Especially, we love the view from our room.... More

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
