Shearwater B & B sits on an elevated site overlooking Glandore Harbour, in the picturesque fishing village of Union Hall. The house was built in 1974, and has been extensively renovated over the years. The property provides panoramic views of the harbour and countryside. The patio offers an idea area to sit and watch the fishing boats returning in the evening, or walk down to the harbour to see the day's catch.
