We had such a great stay at The Shores. Our only complaint is that we couldn't stay longer! Charming bed and breakfast with an incredible view of the ocean across the street.

We came across this sweet place during our Ireland journeys.

Had an amazing time in Annette's holiday rental across from the Guesthouse. The cottage is beautiful and so homely. We were there for a week and would have stayed for four more if we could. Annette is a fabulous host and anything we needed she provided. Would recommend this place highly.
