vader/zoon vis trip

  • 5 out of 5
Samen met mijn zoon (13) zijn we 5 dagen te gast geweest bij Greg en zijn vrouw Sigi, Naast de fantastische vismogelijkheden zijn het ook enorm gastvrije en vriendelijke mensen. Greg is een Visgids met een hoofdletter V en zijn vrouw Kookt met een grote K. Na een dag zeevissen heeft zij onze vangst op een heerlijke wijze klaargemaakt. Ons eerste bezoek aan Ierland zal zeker een vervolg krijgen. Ook als u geen visser bent is de karakteristieke locatie prima in orde om op diverse manieren de omgeving te verkennen.

Kortom. Familie Latour, Bedankt.

Wunderschöne Tage

  • 5 out of 5
Wir (Familie mit 2 Kindern) waren für 5 Tage Gäste bei Greg und Siggi. Unser Cottages hatte alles was man braucht, um ein paar ruhige Tage zu verbringen. Das Frühstück (irish oder continental) ist gut und reichhaltig. Mein Mann und Sohn waren mit Greg erfolgreich Hechtangeln während meine Tochter und ich die wunderschöne Landschaft mit Siggi und Ihren braven Pferden erkundet haben.
Die Gastgeber sind wirklich sehr nett und gaben uns auch sehr gute Tipps was die nähere Umgebung angeht.
Um es kurz zu machen es war Klasse und wir kommen wieder !

Entspannte Tage im Tir na Spideoga

  • 5 out of 5
Wir (3 Ehepaare) waren für 7 Tage Gäste bei Greg und Siggi. Die Cottages (ein 4er und ein 2er) bieten alles was man braucht, um ein paar entspannte Tage zu verbringen. Das Frühstück (irish oder continental) ist gut und reichhaltig und das Abendessen ebenfalls unbedingt zu empfehlen (Kompliment an Siggi!!!).
Die Gastgeber sind aufmerksam und kommunikativ und wir haben sehr gute Tipps erhalten, was die nähere und weitere Umgebung angeht und die auch ein wenig abseits der normalen Touristenwege liegen. Danke dafür!
Ich war bestimmt nicht zum letzten mal dort. Und vielleicht schaffts Greg es eines Tages, mich zum Angler zu bekehren.
Fazit: Alles prima, gerne wieder!

Einfach nur wohlfühlen

  • 5 out of 5
Ich war nun das zweite Mal bei Sigi und Greg. Und es war wieder super. Sympathische, und freundliche Gastgeber bei denen ich mich von der ersten Minute an sehr wohlgeühlt habe. Immer hilfsbereit, keine Frage ist zuviel und Wünsche werden, wenn möglich erfüllt.
.
Wer gern angelt ist bei Greg in den besten Händen. Er spart nicht mit Tipps aus seiner langjährigen Erfahrung, sodass es mir möglich war, selbst bei ungünstigstem Angelwetter noch Fische zu fangen. Hechte im nahe gelegenen Lough Alluah oder Blauhai-Angeln mit abschließenden Robbenbesuch - ein unvergessliches Erlebnis.

Am Abend nach den Angelausflügen verwöhnten mich Sigi und Greg dann mit super leckeren Essen.

Es war bestimmt nicht das letzte Mal, dass ich Irland bei Sigi und Greg genossen habe. Beim nächsten Mal ist bestimmt die Familie mit dabei.
Meine Töchter lieben Pferde und sind dann bei Sigi an der richtigen Adresse.

Wer in einer ruhigen und wunderschönen Umgebung Kraft tanken möchte, ohne dass die Ruhe zur Langeweile wird, findet hier den idealen Ort dafür.
