Shealane Country House was a joy to stay at. Mary and Jim are brilliant hosts, their kindness and warmth make you feel like home. Clean and comfortable with a beautiful view of Portmagee harbor. Excellent Irish breakfasts with great variety. I will stay with them again!

We stayed with Mary last week and her B&B is fabulous. We came in late and worn out and she was such a welcoming presence! The room was pristine and the sheets smelled amazing. The views looking into Portmagee were gorgeous. The next morning, the breakfast was delicious and the view from the open, spacious breakfast room cannot be beat.... More

We stayed two nights here in a trip up the west coast. We had mostly very good accommodation but this for us was the best. Set on a hillside with great views but still within easy walking distance of good eating places. Well designed and furnished to a high standard and with wonderful hosts. Very good value.

I cannot think of one negative thing to say about this beautiful B&B. It is exactly as they describe, a luxury B&B. The rooms are beautiful, the beds are wonderful and the food is delicious. This place was built to be the perfect B&B. It even has a living room with a very large TV where you are welcome to... More

This was one of our favorite stays in Ireland. It was spotlessly clean and well appointed (there were even washcloths). Mary was awesome. She arranged for us to take a boat to Skellig Michael which proved to be one of the highlights of our two week trip. Parking was easy and the location was ideal. Beds were comfy, too. Highly...

Shealane is open until mid-September 2016 before closing for the winter -- if you are traveling to Portmagee/Valentia Island, you still have time to enjoy one of the most lovely, comfortable, and perfectly located B&B's in Ireland!! Everything about Shealane is exceptional. We were traveling as a family of five (2 parents and 3 adult children). We have become 'spoiled... More

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
