I have stayed at Shaminir 5 times and it is the best B&B that I know. I stayed in Ireland 7 times and at the 3rd trip it was the first time at Shaminir. I were with friends there, and it was a very friendly welcome as we arrived. The rooms were very clean, the breakfast is very delicious and...

Thankyou Joyce for making our stay very comfortable and enjoyable. Even watching your new chooks and the deer that was in the front garden in the morning. Sorry we didn't meet Tony as he was on his way over to England but it was a pleasure meeting Joyce and the food was lovely. Sorry we could'nt stay longer but hopefully...

I would like to say I had the fantastic experience at this B&B. The owners where polite and where accommodating to all out requests. We had a great room and after a long journey to have a warm and friendly welcome is much required. Tony the owner and I had chats in the evening and I recently discover he and...

We had a lovely stay at Shaminir in Kenmare, shame about the weather. The view is wonderful and the hosts Joyce and Tony were very attentive to our requirements and in my opinion went above and beyond. When we arrived, Joyce showed us to our room and provided us with guide books and brochures of the local area, which enabled...

We arrived at Shaminir after spending several hours traveling though the winding lanes of Co. Kerry but even that did not prepare us for the fantastic view from the lounge of Shaminir. We were met by Joyce and Tony who showed us to our lovely room, which also had delightful views of their gardens - and after several hours enjoying...

I agree with the review "Rude Host Spoiled Our Stay" - when we arrived, the owner (Tony) had been driving behind us as we made our way to the B&B. I will admit, I am not the best driver, and having been in Ireland only 3 days, I hadn't mastered driving on the left side of the road yet. When...

Shaminir does have a spectacular view, at least from the sitting room, no exaggeration there. And it started out OK. We arrived at the specified time and were cordially greeted by Joyce who showed us the dining area, the sitting room, and our bedroom. We went back into town for dinner, and when we returned we brought guidebooks and brochures...

We do offer extras to guests without charge, but DO take exception to STEALING. The drinks were in our own private lounge, that the guests were using to watch our T.V. It was just as well that we had not left out the keys to our JAGUAR car, or they would have helped themselves to that as well, without asking...
