Großartiger Urlaub - vieeeelen Dank Lena! SEHR EMPFEHLENSWERT!
Wir kamen leider erst spät abends an aber Lena empfing und sehr herzlich und kochte für uns extra noch Tee. Am nächsten Tag lud sie uns ein indem sie für uns ein irisches Frühstück, ganz klassisch, vorbereitete. Sie war immer sehr bemüht und gastfreundlich. Wenn mal etwas fehlte, hat sie uns immer sofort ausgeholfen. Es war immer schön mit ihr zu reden, so lernten wir die Umgebung und Irland gut kennen. Sie hatte immer einen Vorschlag, welche Sehenswürdigkeiten oder Städte wir noch besichtigen könnten und tätigte hier und da für uns Anrufe. Sie ist wirklich sehr lieb und ermöglichte uns einen wunderschönen Urlaub. Ballycrossaun ist ein kleines, gemütliches und ruhiges Dörfchen. Zum Shannon River sind wir ca 10-15 Minuten gelaufen. Ein Spaziergang lohnt sich wirklich bei solch einer schönen Umgebung. Nach Galway sind wir mit dem Bus von Portumna etwa 1 Stunde gefahren. Dort konnte man gut shoppen oder auch gemütlich in Pubs trinken gehen. Die Preise sind dort auch nicht so überteuert wie z. B. in Dublin. Wir sind mit dem Bus von Galway aus zu den Cliffs of Moher, zur Connemara Abbey und zu den Aran Islands mit der GalwayTourCompany. In Portumna, ca zehn Minuten mit dem Auto, gibt es ebenfalls Pubs, Einkaufsmöglichkeiten (Aldi z. B.) eine kleine Bücherei, das Workhouse, ein Schloss, eine Abbey, etc. Auch sonst ist es zentral, sodass man mit dem Auto alles ziemlich gut erreichen kann. Das Shannon Breeze Cottage ist zwar klein aber ziemlich gemütlich eingerichtet. Es gibt ein Elternzimmer/ Ehebett und eine Etage höher ein großes Zimmer mit zwei Betten. Für genügend Handtücher, Shampoo, Seife, usw. hatte Lena bereits bestens gesorgt. Auch der Kühlschrank war bereits befüllt, unter anderem mit Eiern von ihren eigenen Hühnern. Da es doch ungewohnt kühl im August war (ca. 20-22 Grad aber oft recht windig), haben wir täglich ein Feuerchen gemacht. Somit brauchten wir auch keine Heizung. Ein Fernseher ist auch vorhanden aber überflüssig, denn es gibt einiges zu sehen! Leider gibt es in der Nähe keine Bushaltestelle. Die nächste ist in Portumna. Aber von Portumna fährt am Wochenende direkt ein Bus nach Galway. Ansonst muss man von Portumna nach Ballinasloe mit dem Bus und von dort aus dann weiter. Lena war so nett und hat uns während unseres zweiwöchigen Urlaubs immer zu der Bushaltestelle nach Portumna gebracht. Ein paar Mal sogar nach Ballinasloe - ca. 25 Minuten, einfache Strecke! Also am Besten ein AUTO mieten! Sonst könnte es schwierig werden...

Sweet cottage with a lovely owner
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.

Great Time...
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! Stella & Corinna from Germany
