Built in 1902 Shelleven Guest House is full of character and charm.
A lovingly maintained Victorian House with many original features, offering a warm atmosphere and relaxing environment.

Whether eating in the dining room or just chilling in the guest lounge with a coffee, there is always a private space to relax in. Outside the front of the house, we offer a patio area with comfortable rattan furniture for you to enjoy the good weather…..but remember you are in Northern Ireland! Inside, all 13 bedrooms have en-suite facilities and are finished in tasteful, traditional styles with every modern comfort. More favourably, some bedrooms offer spectacular views over Bangor Bay and the Irish Sea beyond.

As a business, we are committed to reducing our impact on the environment by constantly reviewing our operational practices to deliver our services in an environmentally efficient way. We are removing single-use plastics in our guest bedrooms by using glass refillable filtered water bottles and refillable toiletry dispensers.  Reducing single-use paper across our business. Reducing our carbon footprint by using local suppliers.  Conserving energy by switching off lights and using timers and LED bulbs. We ask our guests to make informed choices about reusing rather than replacing towels & linen daily. We’ve implemented a number of water-saving technologies in our bedrooms and kitchen. You’ll find aerated showerheads and dual flush toilets among the many water-saving technologies.  We will continue to constantly review our environmental impact with a view to improving our strategies to achieve our sustainability goal.
