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...

Lovely place to stay, very friendly hosts, good breakfast food with huge choice, and super rooms (giant bed and big shower). We really enjoyed our 2 nights here and were so grateful for the help and advice about the Skelligs.

This is a beautiful B&B. Quiet, great location and even better hospitality. We were traveling 2 adults and 3 kids - the Shealane Country House was able to accommodate us comfortably. Breakfast was amazing with a wide variety of choices from continental to full Irish breakfast. The Shealane is perfectly located for hiking, exploring Valentia Island; Portmagee; the Skellig Ring...

Shealane is very well situated on Valentia just over the bridge in Port Magee. It is easy walking distance of the Skellig experience and boats to Skellig Michael. Circular walks are available from here too. Mary and Jim are great hosts. The rooms are large and comfortable. They are well equipped, huge beds and spotless. Breakfast offers a varied choice...

Stayed here while I was working in Kerry for 1 night. The views are out of this world and the B&B looks nearly as good. It's a long drive down but it would be perfect for a weekend away! The host Mary is so kind and very helpful.
