“LOVED, LOVED, LOVED Shealane Country House”
Reviewed May 4, 2010

We did not want to leave the Shealane Country House or Valentia Island - it is a jewel among the many bed&breakfasts in Ireland. My family of 5 had such a lovely visit. Mary's home is just beautiful - very cozy, immaculately clean, warmly decorated and an even warmer welcome. It couldn't have been a nicer stay. The views from every window of the house are breathtaking - we were blessed with beautiful weather as well. Short walk over the bridge to Portmagee to the Bridge Bar/Pub for an authentic Irish experience - great food, drink and dancing. Our stay here was the highlight of our ten day trip to Ireland for sure. The breakfast was the best as well and we even got a complimentary bottle of wine. We took home our room key by mistake but now we have a reason to go back. Died and went to heaven is how I would describe our experience. I am envious that Mary and her husband get to live there all the time. Would go back again in a heartbeat!!!

We visited Shealane during the summer and found the B&B to be quiet and very enjoyable. The hosts offer a nice variety of cooked to order breakfasts that ranged from Irish Oatmeal to kippers and eggs! The large beds and spacious rooms gave us plenty of space to use the room to relax plus enjoy the amazing views of the harbor and nearby fishing village! We were also given tons of local information from our hostess, Mary, on everything from Irish history to hiking maps. She even arranged our trip, by boat, to see Skellig Michael. I highly recommend Shealane if you will be in county Kerry, Ireland or Valentia Island.

We stayed at Shealane Country House over the August Bank Holiday Weekend and we can whole heartedly recommend this B & B. Mary & Jim gave us a very warm welcome and nothing was too much trouble. The house is in a lovely elevated position overlooking the village of Portmagee and the Harbour. The primary reason for our visit was to see the Skellig's and our hosts kindly made all the arrangements. The breakfast room has wonderful panoramic views and Mary's breakfasts are truly fantastic! The house is warm and cosy, the bedrooms are all en suite and are very comfortable. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
