We had a very enjoyable stay in Shannon Breeze cottage. On arrival at the cottage we found a beautiful bunch of roses, a bottle of wine and some fresh eggs from Lena's chickens. Kind touches and Lena was very welcoming and informative. The little cottage was clean, well equipped and the beds comfortable. We loved the open fire and the pretty hanging baskets outside. The location was very peaceful and we enjoyed watching the house-martins darting about.
Best to do any research before arrival, Lena was very helpful but we had no internet access due to a poor phone signal in the area. The only other thing to mention is that the tap water is a bit salty for drinking so bring bottled.
We spent a lovely week in the cottage. Arrived lately in the night and Lena wrote us before that we can call her at any time when we wouldn't find the way. Really nice! In the morning we met her for the first time and she made us a wonderful traditional irish breakfast. In the cottage you'll find everything that you need and it has a good and simple appointment. The cottage is placed some minutes far away from Portumna. The best place to calm down and to get new power for the normal course of life. The owner Lena is such a lovely, handsome and warm hearted person and was always there with tips for our trips. We could also asked her anytime for difficult ways. Lena has always an open ear for us!
We'll come back soon as possible! Thank you so much for your wonderful hospitality!
