Pros: If you think you’re going to book one night at this B&B, you’re making a terrible mistake—you should definitely stay at least two nights! On a six-week trip through Europe, this place has been a highlight! The location is just 15 minutes from Portmagee, which is ideal for boat trips and exploring the Ring of Kerry. The hosts are so friendly, kind and professional. The king bed was fantastic and so comfortable. The room itself was situated right on the water, and there were so many thoughtful amenities. Breakfast was delicious and they accommodated our need to have an earlier start time due to our Skellig landing tour trip. There were homemade jams and fresh eggs laid by their own hens! The breakfast room was lovely with a view of the water. We have stayed in so many places that had one or two nice aspects, but very few have been perfect in every way. Wish we could’ve stayed longer! Highly recommended.
Cons: Nothing—everything was perfect!

Pros: I was traveling with my son around Ireland and found Shealane on a booking site. What a wonderful find! The lovely property sits on a hill overlooking the bay and the town of Portmagee. We came to Valentia Island for a Skellig Michael tour but we had been unable to book a trip. Mary Called a boat captain and was able to book two seats! It was an amazing trip. This was a highlight of our vacation and it wouldn’t have been possible without Mary’s help. In addition, it is a cozy property, they have an amazing breakfast (including a great vegetarian Irish breakfast option), and a very nice cat. Also, Valentia island is a beautiful place worth exploring. I would highly recommend staying at Shealane House with Mary and Jim.

8.3 Excellent
Pros: + very clean BB + helpful host + nice breakfast +Valencia island merely is beautiful!
Cons: -quite pricy for what you get (90€\night) - rooms and bathrooms are quite small -we had our room on the backyard, with no view and children playing outside, so we always had our curtains closed which was a pity, considering the beautiful surroundings of Valencia island -Salmon for breakfast was finished. Since it was a long weekend, a better organisation would have been aspected

9.5 Excellent
Pros: We could not have asked for a better host. Maria was sooo accommodating and went out of her way to ensure that our stay was home from home. Our main aim was to get to Skellig Michael and she selflessly made phone calls to make our dream come true. Our room was perfect and if there were families travelling together, the living room, fridge and teamaking facilities just make it that bit better. Off road, private spacious grounds make this a great spot...and the adventure of being on an island...yet close to Portmagee make it ideal. We cannot praise Maria enough for her hospitality..and attractively presented and tasty breakfasts. We would not hesitate in recommending her to any tourist lucky enough to be visiting this beautiful corner of Ireland.
Cons: Having to leave County Kerry..... best county in Ireland for tourism!
