This is our first B&B and what a fantastic experience. The views were great, the staff were so friendly and the rooms were beautifully decorated and well appointed. The breakfast was more than ample and well presented and prepared. It is well located out of Castlegregory and a short taxi ride has you in town for a great pub meal...

This is definitely one of the best B&B's you'll ever find. The location is spectacular - over looking the ocean. The rooms are comfortable and beautifully decorated . The breakfasts were made to order and absolutely delicious. Annette and her staff turned out a delicious meal every morning. The entire house is neat, clean, and very stylish. I would say...

We have visited many B&B's in Ireland but this is really top notch. The house and rooms were elegantly decorated and the friendly staff presented us with breakfast that was out of this world. It is stated in a fantastic location with a magnificent view of the ocean. We will definitely go back again.

We've visited quite a number of B&B's in Ireland, but this one is hard to top! The location is great (with ocean views) on the the peninsula Dingle. Many things are nearby: beach (10 min. walk), town of Dingle, Conor pass, Brandon point, Glanteenassig Forest Park (not overcrowded with tourists, off the N86 at the village of Aughacasla, hidden gem!)...

This is a luxurious bed and breakfast with gorgeous and stylish room interior, bed linen and bathroom. Our room was an upstairs corner room with balcony and looked out over the Atlantic ocean. We could even see the ocean while laying on our bed! The breakfast was delicious. We had the french toast and freshly squeezed orange juice. Annette recommended...

We went to the Shore country house last summer and It was the best hotel experience we had! We stayed for 2 nights and for the third night, we had a problem with the booking and the house was full. The owner proposed to us to stay at her cottage just in front of the Atlantic Ocean for the same...

The Shores Country House is amazingly beautiful. We travelled there on our honeymoon in April 2013. Annette had booked us into the front room with a view of the Atlantic. Our stay was too short, but we enjoyed the Irish breakfasts that she prepared for us. It truly is the most gorgeous place to stay.

You cannot go to Ireland without exploring the Dingle Peninsula and staying at The Shores Country House. A charming woman, Annette owns this property and the accommodation is nothing short of spectacular as is the scenery and hospitality shown to us. This is definitively a five star property...Annette is a perfectionist in every sense of the word and we felt...

This is a truly delightful B&B with gorgeous, comfortable and spotless rooms and common areas. Beautiful, delicious breakfast. The entire experience was first class and elegant. Hostess Annette was as helpful as could be. She recommended Spillane's Bar for a down-to-earth, local experience for dinner; we went twice. Dined with friendly windsurfer champs. Great location in middle of Dingle Peninsula....
