We visit our relatives a couple of times a year in Northern Ireland and these days we always book Shelleven House well in advance. This is to ensure we get a room with a view out across the harbour and the bay. The rooms are larger than most guest houses and superbly decorated. The beds are very comfortable which is excellent after a long journey and everywhere is clean and fresh. I have to mention the breakfasts (another key reason why we stay there); the full Irish Breakfast is fantastic and a great start for the day. There are also many healthy breakfast options available and my daughters especially love the pancakes. The owners Sue and Paul are very attentive, helpful and friendly and have lots of local knowledge and advice for their guests. Our flat-screen TV in the room had Netflix which was great for our daughters to catch up on their shows and there is Wifi everywhere. The only problem with giving a great review (and I’m very happy to) is that many other people will discover this beautiful gem, nestled on the slopes of Bangor; meaning I will have to book even further in advance. Que sera, sera.
