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

We could not ask for anything more from Shealane. Ideally located with wonderful views over the bridge to Port McGee. Comfortable rooms, guest lounge, great breakfast. When the weather is up to it there is a very comfortable terrace and gardens. We will return! I don't need 200 characters to review Shealane, just go, you will not be disappointed!!!

The room offered a very nice few over the harbor of Portmagee. The room was very quiet and included a TV and a beautiful and clean bath. The breakfast was very tasty; especially the chocolate rolls. The price was ok.

This B&B was recommended to me by a colleague and he could not have picked a better place! We arrived much later than planned but we were received with Jim's big smile and "no problem at all". Our room was beautiful with a fabulous view onto Portmagee and the hills of the island. The beds, bathroom and furnishings left nothing... More

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.
