Beautiful atmosphere and location, excellent facilities, and the staff was very friendly and accommodating. It was the most enjoyable B & B that we have stayed in. Rooms were clean and comfortable. I highly recommend this facility!

This is by far the best lodging choice of our 8-day trip in Ireland. A charming country house with a nice garden in the back, this B & B is very close to the shore. Our bed room has a small window with a spectacular view of the sea, the bathroom is probably the cleanest we have ever been to,... More

What a jewel of a B&B convenient to nearby Dingle and Kerry. Annette, our hostess, was friendly, bubbly and really made the stay a first class experience. The touches like a menu in the room to choose from for breakfast, fruit cake in the room, immaculately clean and lovingly furnished room made the stay feel so luxurious. The breakfast--whether Irish... More

Annette, the host, is one of the best hosts I have ever encountered. She just lives and breathes hospitality. The Shores offers an amazing breakfast selection. I loved the freshly cooked full Irish and the mixed fresh fruit bowl for starters. Annette bakes her own bread which just adds to the breakfast experience. I was lucky to get a room... More

Very nice guest house! Great location, wonderful view of the ocean. The grounds are very beautiful and well maintained. Our rooms #1 was very comfortable. Every thing was clean to the standard you would see in a hospital OR! The breakfast was outstanding; and there is a menu you can select from. Nice common sitting room that was comfortable. Certainly... More

We reserved a room at this B&B based on strong reviews. Didn't disappoint. It was really more than a B&B. (We just noticed that Trip Advisor labels The Shores as a Country House.) Luxury: the house itself, the setting overlooking the ocean, furniture in our room. Wonderful breakfast. All hosted by the vivacious, gracious hostess Anette. Perhaps a bit pricey.... More

We enjoyed two nights at Annette's Shores Country House. The view across the street of Brandon Bay is breathtaking, and we reserved the second-floor water view room with a balcony, which was a great move. We cracked the door a little at night and could gently hear the sheep and cows in the pasture leading to the water. That and... More

My partner and I had a wonderful stay at The Shores in early August and cannot recommend it highly enough. The beautifully furnished bedroom was spotless. Hostess, Annette, and her team were so friendly and obliging. Add in breakfasts to die for and you're on a winner. We will definitely be back!

Annette and her lady's give a great welcome and efficient quality service as well as being sources of lots of local information. The house is furnished to a high standard. We had the first floor corner room with two windows and balconies looking out over the beaches and the sea. Very comfortable beds with quality sheets and pillows. As well... More

The Shores Country House is my new favorite B&B! We stayed in the "family suite" which has its own entrance, a small kitchen, a living area (where our 2 kids slept) and a bedroom/bathroom upstairs. Absolutely perfect for a family. Everyone was so friendly, and the breakfast was the best we have had! Do allow your children to splurge on... More
