A Repeat Customer
I've stayed at the hotel a number of times. A family of country fans we often attend music on Sunday nights but stay over for special occasions, and once for a lovely three day break. Great deals, great prices, lovely rooms, fantastic welcome and staff right across the board are friendly and welcoming. We will definately be staying again.... and again.....
Stayed 3 nights to attend a friends wedding, would highly recommend staying in this hotel. Very reasonably priced, wedding food was excellent. Would definitely stay again.
Family break
Spent a 2 night break with my mum, sister and her son and my two boys, so 3 adults and 3 children under the age of 10... the moment we arrived to when we departed I couldn't say anything wrong about this ... beautiful hotel, the staff ARE the nicest that I have ever met, Geraldine at reception was so welcoming and very helpful, I have stayed at this hotel before and all I can say is that the staff are so pleasant, so helpful and mannerly, they make you feel like they appreciate that you choose their hotel, the food is great, the atmosphere in the lounge bar is great, and for me the highlight was the joy on my boys faces as they returned from the fantastic kids club each night, happy and contented, and that was what made our break, as while they were being entertained, we had leisure time for the spa, pool and a very relaxed delicious dinner in the rest.. for us, this is a gem of a hotel and I would recommend anyone, with or without children to visit and experience the Shearwater Hotel, as nothing is too much for them, we are 100% returning during the summer holidays....cant wait ---
Brilliant Weekend
We had a fantastic weekend in Ballinasole with the pampering girly package, the food was excellent along with the service and package deal was great value for money. I would highly recommend the Shearwater Hotel in the future.

Excellent Hotel for a weekend break
I would just like to thank the hotel and spa staff for the most wonderful weekend. I went down on a girly weekend with my mam, aunts and cousins and we had a lovely time. The staff in the spa were very ... nice and we were all very relaxed. The reception staff were very friendly and very helpful. We will definitely be back to the hotel as the price was great at €99 for 2 night b&b and a evening meal. ---

Family Weekend
Perfect weekend break with our 8 and 11 year old kids. Thought our son (11) would be too old for to enjoy the Kids Club but both came back excited both nights. Excellent value at €5 per child for 4 hours including swim and food while we relaxed with excellent meals and a few drinks. Will definitely be back!
