Fantastic house, fantastic staff, fantastic view, and fantastic food that will never be forgotten!!
Tripadvisor do not have enough rating stars for this place.. Go there, stay, and not at least; don't even think of eating your meals anywhere else!! If you have stayed there and did not eat your meals there; regret your choise for the rest of your life! :-)

The whole B&B looked very American. Our room had a balcony with view of the beach. The room was very comfy and included a TV. The breakfast had to be ordered the day before, but we could choose from a wide array of different breakfasts. The B&B had a nice parking space in the front. The price was a little bit too much.

Room Tip: Room with Balcony and double bed, sea view

Situated out in the middle of nowhere with a view you could kill for this is heaven on earth. We got a very nice room and met by Annette and her daughter. They also served us an absolutely perfect and amazing 3 course dinner! It was truly a perfect evening. Breakfast was equally as good and huge. They are the perfect cooks and perfect hostesses. If you need a place to stay, stay here!! :)

My husband and I stayed here for two nights with our son, who is heading off to college this fall. The Shores is a beautiful gem in a gorgeous setting. Every detail is right, from the comfortable beds to the world-class, gargantuan breakfast. Our room was lovely, and we also enjoyed an evening drink in the snug sitting room as well as the garden in the back of the house. From the front you see a sweeping view of the bay and of Mt. Brandon and the mountains, with a wide beach where we walked on our first night under a spectacular sunset. We had adjusted somewhat to the time change (coming from the U.S.) but were on a rather late sleeping and waking schedule, and Annette graciously offered us a late dinner on both nights we were there. She and her daughter are excellent cooks and bakers! You absolutely could not do better than stay here. I hope we will be able to go back someday.

Room Tip: The triple room was snug but quite comfortable for two adults and our 18-year-old son.

Our only regret was that we couldn't stay longer! Our hostess, Annette was wonderful. We were traveling with our teenage daughter and she offered us the two story on the right of the house. It had a small kitchen, living area with day bed, an upstairs bedroom and a bathroom. Very cosy and perfect for the 3 of us. It is a beautiful property that faces the beach. We walked along the beach and had dinner at Spillane's. The next morning the breakfast was the best we had in Ireland. It was not only delicious but also presented beautifully. We ate much more than we should and totally skipped lunch in Dingle. We would definitely go back. Thanks so much!

We had been here in 2011, and now we wonder why we waited three years to come back. Annette runs a magnificent establishment where everything is of the utmost quality and nothing is too much trouble. My wife is a cleanliness fanatic, and even she was impressed by the standards. And you've never had a breakfast until you've experienced the output from Annette's kitchen. A good tip is not to have eaten a large dinner the night before! And you certainly won't need lunch...As for the location, if scenery and tranquillity are your thing, then look no further. And the buzz of Dingle is just down the road. And if you like the odd round of golf, Castlegregory is a hidden gem.

Room Tip: Ask for room 3. Upper level, great view of the sea, and a small balcony.
