Our visit was excellent from before we got there until we left. Before we even arrived Mary had helped me to get a booking for the Skellig Michael tour. Nearly all the operators but Mary found probably the last two seats at short notice. The B&B itself was great. The bed was very comfy, the room and house was spotless, the shower was excellent, the breakfast was amazing and the towels were the fluffiest I've ever felt.

Me and my parents, Deirdre and Robbie stayed here for 3 nights. It was a really charming stay overall! Mary and Jim are fantastic hosts, very easy to chat and get along with. Their home cooked breakfasts are simply divine. This house has gorgeous views of Portmagee, the coastline and the surrounding landscapes! The rooms have a nice cosy vibe to them, very much a home away from home. If you ever decide to sail towards Skellig, the house is in a really convenient place. It's just a short drive across Maurice O'Neill bridge into Portmagee Pier. This is an easy recommendation from us, we can't thank Mary and Jim enough for their warm hospitality. Hope to return there in the near future!

We stayed 2 nights in this lovely B&B on Valentia Island. The house is in a great location, just over the bridge from Portmagee and with views overlooking the harbour. The room was spotlessly clean with seated area, tea and coffee facilities, a fridge, TV and ensuite bathroom. Mary was very helpful and knowledgeable about the local area and even went to the trouble of buying in Almond milk for me as I am lactose intolerant - such a lovely lady! The breakfast was delicious and my wife particularly enjoyed the french toast with bacon and maple syrup. On our final day, Mary and Jim sat down and talked with us about the rest of our trip, showed genuine interest and offered recommendations - just lovely people! If you plan to stay on Valentia Island, stay here!

Just completed our 4 night stay with Mary and Jim on Valentia Island. Shealane Country House is a beautifully situated B&B, with gorgeous views of Portmagee Harbour and the surrounding Kerry cliffs. The room and adjoining en suite were lovely, big and spacious akin to any 5 star hotel. Breakfast every morning was a delight with plenty of selection and variety, everything from the traditional fry to French toast and pancakes, served with a smile and a beautiful view. Would stay with Mary and Jim again in a heartbeat, the B&B is brilliantly situated for all activities in Portmagee and Valentia, particularly for anyone visiting the Skelligs. Thanks Mary and Jim for a wonderful stay, really appreciate it 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻

Jim and Mary are truly amazing hosts. Guest rooms and bathrooms are very clean. Breakfast was delicious- hot and hearty for my husband and fruit and yogurt for me. Breakfast room all windows and looking out over to beautiful Portmagee. Would definitely return to this little gem!
