Had a shaky start to our stay when the lady owner handed us over to her husband who was not welcoming at all. Here's your room, here's your key, breakfast between 8.30-9.30. After the tremendous staff at the last placed we had stayed at, this was quite an unwelcome surprise. Once Adella returned though, she was very, very welcoming. She...

Situated in the small community of Keelbeg, Shearwater B&B is only a 10" walk from the pubs & facilities of Union Hall. Our accommodation in The Studio was excellent, it was furnished & equipped to a very high standard. With lovely views across the water towards Glendore. Breakfast was again of a very good standard with an excellent and varied...

Adela was more than accomodating. We had a lovely room with an ensuite and then a sitting room off this. The conservatory and balcony was available for an early evening drink. Nearby was so much to see and savour. Breakfast was up there with the best hotel in the world - fresh lucious fruit, smoked salmon and fresh coffee.

For a B&B they don't come any better. We stayed there recently with two granddaughters and will certainly stay again when the opportunity arises. Rooms very well furnished and beds really comfy and spotlessly clean. Adela's breakfast is a cracking one with plenty of fresh fruit, nothing out of a can, and cooked breakfast just as you request it. Shearwater...
