Shamrock House offers excellent, homely B&B accommodation at Inch Strand, Co Kerry. Mary O'Shea is a warm and welcoming host. I stayed three nights in late November. The room was en suite, breakfast substantial, spectacular views from the front of the house. Decent Guinness at Foley's Bar, next door. Stunning scenery all around.

This is a really lovely B an B, with a sea view. A nice comfortable bed, good size room. Clean and warm. The lovely lady running it was a very kind person indeed, soon as we arrived she offered tea and scones. Very happy with our stay, such a beautiful location.

Breakfast was faultless. Our hostess... More

Rooms were very comfortable and the staff were very friendly. We only stayed one night but would be happy to go back to stay again for longer. It's within walking distance to the beach and plenty of parking available.

While the weather was not very co-operative, our stay with Mary was truly lovely. We were greeted with tea and scones on or arrival and made to feel most welcome. The breakfast every morning (and we stayed for nine days) was delicious and slightly varied each day. Breakfast was not cooked until we were at our table and then we... More

I recently spent NYE here and I definitely would like to make this a tradition. Our host Mary was incredibly welcoming and makes everybody feel right at home. Her cooking is out of this world and there was even a plate full of sandwiches left for us after our NYE partying! The rooms are clean and comfortable with a great... More

The location is perfect: just 5 minutes walk to Inch Beach and 3 from the local pub. Mary is a great host and her breakfast is delicious! The view is so beautiful and you just can lie on the couch at the entrance of the house and enjoy it! Great place!!!

Mary O'Shea was very accommodating, and our room was spotless and comfortable with an ensuite bathroom. We woke up to a beautiful view just minutes fron Inch beach and had a lovely breakfast that sustained us for hours.
