Perfect Host Perfect Accommodation
Our party of four stayed here for two nights, 30 June & 1 July.
Amanda greeted us with a warm welcom and a pot of coffee and we all felt right at home straight away. The rooms were spotless cozy and comfortable.
Breakfast was always perfect and plenty of choices.
The advise on places to visit was priceless, we would not hesitate to recommend SheenView to anyone looking to holiday in the area.
First choice if staying in Kenmare
Me and my son stayed here on our motorbike tour of Ireland . Welcomed with a pot of tea and biscuits .. Just the best of welcomes after a long day on the bikes .. The landlady was so helpful guiding us to the best places to eat locally and also arranging a taxi ... Brilliant ... Large comfy rooms with excellent shower ... And a great breakfast the following day ... All for a great price ... If your staying in this part of Ireland make this your number 1 choice of B and B
You cannot find a nicer place to stay!
If you plan to visit the southwest you are well advised to book a stay at SheenView B&B. Amanda greeted us with a smile and a pot of tea and we knew right away we were going to enjoy our stay! The room was cozy and comfortable and the sitting room was our home away from home. Breakfast was always excellent with a great variety available and more than enough to satisfy the biggest appetite. The location is convenient to Dingle and the Ring of Kerry as well as the Beara penninsula. It's country setting is also very close to Kenmore Town and the many shops and restaurants. I can say without any reservation SheenView is the best B&B we have ever stayed at! Amanda is the perfect hostess and we hope to stay there again!
Arrived after a very long journey. Lovely people and great house. Even got towels to dry the motorbike on the morning. Would live to come back again. Good thing is the weather would be better the next time!!
One of the best B&B we've ever had
Fantastic location with a magnificent view of the mountains. very friendly and hospitable welcome, very clean and spacious rooms (just the bed was a little small for two adults used to a continental standard, but that's typical for Irish beds). The breakfast was one of the best we've ever had in Ireland (and we've stayed at quite a number of B&Bs by now). We highly recommend this B&B!
Perfect place - couldn't be happier
Let me start by saying I normally can be pretty critical in reviews. We originally booked with another B&B down the road that double booked and moved us to Sheenview without asking. I wasn't totally happy with that idea at first, but Amanda and Peter quickly changed our mindset. They were incredibly friendly, and even offered suggestions for places to go that we hadn't considered (great suggestions!) The room was great, it has skylights that open so you can get freshair, and blackout curtains that made it feel like a cave for the day we wanted to sleep in. A separate TV room upstairs was also nice. Amanda's Full Irish breakfast was fantastic, and honestly, we loved the tea (my wife usually hates tea too!) The only suggestion we have is that we wish we knew there was WiFi available (didn't find out until the last morning there)
Make sure you go to Gleninchaquin Park just down the road for a great day with various hikes, and some homemade scones after you finish. The waterfall was beautiful and the views second to none. Also, Peter recommended Healy Pass on our drive on the Ring of Beara and it was a great drive.
Thanks so much for everything, and if we get back to County Kerry, we'll be staying again!
Super clean and very comfortable. Lovely B&B
We stayed at SheenView over the bank holiday weekend. We were diving with Kenmare Bay Diving Centre and SheenView is located about 20 minutes away on the right side of Kenmare town. Its also a very short drive into Kenmare where there are plenty of nice restaurants, so for us the location was ideal. To say the rooms are clean would be an understatement, they are totally spotless (as is everywhere at SheenView). Our room had a big ensuite and plenty of space. The guest lounge is a nice touch with plenty of books, dvds and board games. The owner is very friendly and helpful. There was plenty of choice for breakfast (including a couple of vegetarian options) and the breakfast was very tasty. The owners certainly go that bit extra to make sure you are well looked after, we'd definitely choose to stay there again.
What a fabulous B&B. Amanda is a very hospitable host & made us feel very welcome. Located in a tranquil position just outside Kenmare with a lovely garden to enjoy afternoon tea. Beautifully extended house with all the equipment you would expect from an above average B&B. Good value & no complaints, except my wife now wants to move there! Ask Amanda to show you the secret path to the coast - its a great place to hide for for a few hours - just a 10min walk.
Fantastic bed and breakfast and excellent quality and value
"What a lovely bed and breakfast!"
We came across it quite by chance on the ring of Beara road just outside Kenmare.
We liked the out of town location, you need a car to get to a lot of places in Ireland anyway. Can't understand the previous reviewer thinking it was too far out of town? I would say this was a positive aspect of the location; peace and quiet, fantastic view and central for all the attractions of ring of kerry, Beara and Killarney. From the moment we set eyes on the place we were so pleased to have come across it; It was really nice, tastefully decorated and was finished with quality furnishings.
I found the bed room to be lovely and charming. As far as the guest lounge was concerned it was a very welcome addition to the b&b and served its purpose over and above what you would normally expect from such a place dvds, books, hot and cold beverages, cooler fridge, wine glasses and corkscrew, tv and dvd player comfortable chairs and a small window with a gigantic view of the hillside; pretty as a picture! The benefits of a separate room to relax in are great for the family who may have children in bed or for those who want to relax away from the bedroom.
Breakfast is served in the lovely conservatory and is of good quality and plentiful. No complaints about the food at all. We were shown round the rest of the b&b by the owner upon our request, as we admired what a lovely home she had made. The other guest rooms were downstairs and had varying bed configurations and were just as nice as our own; again finished to a very high standard.
Outside there is parking for several cars and there is a patio area and bbq available for the guests to use. This place is suitable for a whole range of travellers who’s needs will be met more than adequately. Nearby is Kenmare town, fishing, golf, horse riding, nature and boat trips, cycling, motor cycling, classic car enthusiasts, sightseeing and so much more. Special interest groups are more than welcome too; i was told that any help if needed to plan activities and routes would be available. The owners i gather are very experienced in travel around Ireland as they had holidayed consistently there over a number of years before coming to Kenmare to live.
I would definitely stay at this b&b again and would recommend it without hesitation.
A great stay
We were greeted very warmly by Amanda, we felt immediately at home. The exercise room was very clean and warm, the bathroom was clean. The breakfast was great, in a beautiful winter garden with a great view. We have not eaten all our breakfast so we Amanda has put together a packed lunch for the journey. Because it has given us so much, we stayed one night longer than planned.
Hospitality and cleanliness: winning mix
My husband and I stayed for one night at this great b & b in the month of June. I'm sorry to write my comment just now but I hope to still be useful to anyone who is preparing to stay in Ireland. We were looking for a quiet and beautiful from the panoramic point of view and a short distance from Kenmare, offering good parking and is easily reached by car, we were lucky enough to find this accommodation. The facility is very nice both inside and outside and organized neatly by the owner with the attention to detail Also the breakfast is great but what struck us most was the cleanliness and hospitality. super recommended!
More than a really good hotel; just a B & B
We have in the last two years determined 20 different B & Bs seen, but heard SheenView definitely the best we have visited. The B & B Sheen View of Peter and Amanda Mallinson Ireland is highly recommended for travellers who want to spend close to Kenmare a few nice days. We had - although only two - the three-bed room on the first floor. The room is very tastefully decorated, neat and clean. The beds were freshly made (which, unfortunately not all B & B beds is a matter of course). Also, you had a "real" quilt, not just a decorative paints under the ceiling. The bathroom was immaculate and was brought back every day to a high gloss. To our surprise us was also a small fridge in the hallway. For tea or even as against the thirst was free bottled water. Kettle and hairdryer are also part of standard amenities. The lounge on the first floor offers a large flat screen numerous DVDs (in English), board games and a nice selection of books. The view from the huge windows of the lounge on the Kenmare Bay is beautiful. For a small selection of breakfast menu is available from which you can choose. Breakfast is served in a beautiful bright conservatory with views also to the ordinary garden. Peter and Amanda are very friendly and attentive hosts. It took us with them so much that we stayed a night instead of the planned two directly. Tip: Only about 1 km further down the road (ie from Kenmare away) comes the Sailor Bar O `Sullivan. There you can eat very well. The salmon was a dream! The value for money is really good.
