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

This is a great place to stay with lovely rooms and a lovely breakfast area. The breakfast was made to our fancy and the views from the dining area and our room were enchanting. Mary was so kind and helpful. The room was very large so was the en suite bathroom. Stay here and dine at the Bridge Bar just... More

Had a beautiful modern room with a fantastic ensuite bathroom. Great warm shower. Lovely welcome from Mary the owner. Breakfast was excellent and a varied menu including full irish, kippers, french toast. Great base for exploring the island.

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

Great B&B with very nice hosts. The view from the breakfast-room through the big glass-window over the Harbour of Portmagee and the sea and the mountauns..... is breathtaking! I could sit there for hours just watching the clouds go by.And the breakfast itself is one of the best we had. We would like very much to come back!!

We first visited Shealane Country House in 1999, and then 2000. My mother-in-law found this B&B in a tour book when we were traveling together to visit family in Kerry. The rooms were immaculate, the setting gorgeous. Mary and her husband Jim were very warm and welcoming. Dinner at the Moorings was superior. The breakfast toasties were splendid. Fifteen years...

Mary and Jim are possibly the friendliest and most welcoming B&B hosts I have ever encountered; nothing is too much trouble. If you are looking for B&B on Valentia then this is a must. The bedroom was very clean and comfortable with a good sized bathroom that had a great shower. Towels were changed almost daily, there were fresh bottles... More

The rooms are better than some of the hotels. Room is very clean. Mary was very friendly and accomodating. Nice view of Portmagee. Will recommend this to everyone. Will definitely go back there again.

We decided to split the ride around The Ring of Kerry in to two days. So we travelled from the north and rode half the ring then stayed here. Mary Shealane, is very accommodating. We arrived late and just phoned her - she was over at dinner across the bridge - and she came right over. We were struck by... More

Ww arrived here after a day of cycling in really heavy rain. We were created by the owners who offered to dry our clothes which were soaked! They also offered to drive us over to the town so we could get some food. They were so accommodating and friendly. The rooms were beautiful and the views were gorgeous!
