Fodor's Review

A large, modern house on Valentia Island, beside the bridge to the mainland, Shealane is easily reached but also affords views of cows grazing in the adjoining field and a breakfast room with ocean views. A brisk five-minute walk across the bridge leads you to Portmagee and should sharpen your appetite for hearty bar food. Host Mary Lane is native to the area and can organize boat trips to the Skelligs, as well as fishing, horseback riding, walking, and golf. Her home is a delight, with bright airy rooms, polished pine floors, and large traditional wooden windows framing the peaceful views guests often dream about long after leaving.
