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....

One of the very best places to stay in Ireland. The owners and staff are pleasant, courteous and helpful. The home itself (dining, sitting and rooms) are impeccably neat and clean. Breakfast is a bounty of most anything you could wish for and with great presentation. The view from the house is spectacular overlooking Brandon Bay and the Fermoyle Beach...

By far the best B&B we have visited. Views of the ocean, great breakfast. Best part was the drive to Dingle, incredible views everywhere. Annette made several wonderful detailed recommendations for food and music in Dingle (including a well drawn map).

This was the best B&B we stayed in during our trip to Ireland. All of them were good, but this one took it up a notch. It has a beautiful view overlooking the Atlantic. The house was beautifully decorated, and the garden in the back was also gorgeous. Our room was spacious and tastefully done. Breakfast in the morning was...

This was our 4th stop on our family tour. And our third B and B of the trip. The owner Annette accommodated with every need. Suggested a restaurants in Dingle and we went to Castlegregory where we meet some locals and had a drink that evening. Breakfast was good! The shower water pressure was good here!

The Shores Country House is a magnificent place to stay if you are visiting The Dingle Peninsular. The house overlooks the water and is only a short drive to the town of Dingle and an easy scenic drive around the coast. Annette is a superb host, very welcoming and the best cook ever! The presentation of the food at breakfast...

The quality of accomodation, the food, the hospitality and the helpfulness of Annette, the proprietor, and her staff are beyond praise. We have never before stayed at such a marvellous location. I understand that The Shores has recently been very favourably reviewed in The Sunday Times. Every plaudit that Annette receives will be richly deserved. Given the opportunity, we will,...

All B&B's should be this way....the rooms were beautiful and the greeting warm and friendly. Breakfast was excellent....I would recommend the waffles but all that came out looked very nice. If we visit this part of Ireland again we will certainly stay here.
