We stayed at the Shealane Country House just a couple of weeks ago and it was the most fabulous B&B experience my family has ever had! My kids enjoyed staying here so much that they didn't want to leave! The hosts Mary and Jim were OUTSTANDING! Mary had corresponded with me over the months prior to our visit and she... More

We visted Valentia Island in late May 2016, stayed at Shealane and LOVED the proprietors. When we met Mary there was an immediate bond. Her warm, welcoming fun spirit reminded me of my Irish mother. We only drove half the Ring of Kerry and decided to explore Valentia Island. No other Irish breakfast during our trip compared to the authentic... More

Beautiful bed and breakfast across the bridge from Portmagee. The views of the harbor, fields of flowers and farms is amazing. A short walk to a few pubs and restaurants. Our room was large and very clean. Comfortable bed and big bathroom. Large windows provide a bright and airy atmosphere. There is a nice patio outside and the breakfast room... More

Wonderful B&B. Mary and Jim are the nicest people. The views of the harbor, the ocean, and Portmagee are phenomenal. The rooms are beautiful with comfortable beds and a sitting area and all the tea and coffee you could want. Breakfast is expertly prepared for any time between 8 and 10 and consists of numerous choices from traditional Irish breakfast... More

From the moment we pulled into the driveway and until we headed to Dingle, three days later, we were home. Mary and Jim have created a beautiful home and B&B that they graciously share with all of us. We were so well "taken care of" that we didn't want to leave. We can't think of a more beautiful place to... More

We stayed here during the Valentia 150th anniversary of the Trans-Atlantic cable and it was like a home away from home. Both Mary and Jim really looked after us and made sure we were well fed and also had a great nights sleep. They were so informative about the island, the festivities and were always willing to help with anything.... More

We were very pleased with Mary and Jim's B&B. We had a large room with large windows. From the front window, we could see the lambs playing in the field. The two side windows, we could see the waters between Valentia Island and Portmagee. The bathroom was spacious. Besides, the usual amenties, Mary gave all of the guests, bottles of... More

As the title suggests, this was the best night's sleep we had on our entire trip. We arrived mid-afternoon and were welcomed immediately. We felt so welcome. The room was wonderful with a nice bathroom and the shower had plenty of water pressure. The windows were open allowing for a nice cool breeze, we almost fell asleep immediately. Additionally, my...
