“Our favorite place!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013

This is our fifth visit to this lovely home. We always stay with Annette when we visit lovely Ireland. The rooms are better than some there three times the price. The food and bedding are exquisite. Hospitality is first rate and the location is lovely. Can't Wait To go back!

Stayed August 2013, traveled as a couple

What a wonderful place to stay - the best experience we had in Ireland. Annette is such a wonderful hostess and person. We had a terrific breakfast and an incredible view of the longest beach in Ireland. Annette set up our horseback riding on the beach with one of the locals and our girls just loved it. The weather was perfect, the stay was perfect...if you are anywhere on the Dingle peninsula, stay at the Shores Country House. It will make your vacation!!

Room Tip: Ask for the rooms overlooking the beach.

If you're in the Dingle area do yourself a favor and book this B&B. What a wonderful lovely place and so close to the ocean and beach. The breakfasts were wonderful and the rooms just beautiful. Such a nice place to come home to after a day of touring. Thank you Annette and staff!

Room Tip: All the rooms were beautiful, although some have bath/shower combos and some just showers.

The absolute best B&B experience I have had the pleasure to have.
Accommodations and staff were above my expectations.
Annette, you are to be congratulated on what you have created.
What a great beach for that sunset stroll!
Can't wait to come back!

We have stayed at quite a few bed and breakfast accommodations in our time but none have equaled or exceeded the elegance and service of the Shores Country House. The house is exquisite, the service impeccable and the room outstanding! We had an amazing breakfast on the morning of our departure and should we ever have occasion to be in the area again we would most certainly stay there!

Room Tip: Make sure to have proper GPS coordinates. It can get confusing!

Our family of five stayed at the Shores Country House for four nights in August 2013. Annette and her staff were wonderful hosts. Both rooms had terrific views. The decor of the Inn is high-end, elegant, and warm. The breakfasts were delicious with generous portions. It is a great place for families, but would be equally nice for a couples' getaway. We would definitely come back and stay at the Shores again. We also recommend the location, the Dingle Peninsula. The scenery is breathtaking. Castlegregory has some good places to eat and also has a beach that is convenient. Dingle is not too far away.

I have stayed at a lot of B&B's in Europe and never have I been to one as nice. Our host was very welcoming and gracious and the accommodations were 4 star. Beautiful linens, very comfortable beds, the views were fantastic & the breakfast was to die for! I would absolutely recommend this place to anyone. Only downside... The drive into Dingle is quite hair raising!
