We stayed just one night here and really enjoyed it. It was clean and comfortable with tasteful furniture and a great ensuite. Breakfast was really nice and Sue the owner was so accommodating and friendly. Very short walk into town, would recommend staying here.

I am completely at a loss as to how this place gets five stars. To be fair, it does have many good points. The landlady Sue is very friendly and helpful, the breakfasts are great, the rooms are clean and it is a short walk from the town centre. Our room (and other guests had similar stories) was tiny.

This is my fourth time at Shelbourne House, going back to 2009. My stay this time was for six nights. Sue and Neil run a great guesthouse. Breakfasts are always fantastic, thanks to Sue's cooking. One of my breakfasts from 2014 is my computer wallpaper. Bathroom plumbing is ultramodern in all rooms. The towels are unbelievably soft and fluffy. Location... More
