About the property

Self-catering cottage for 2-6 people or half board

How about a holiday on a 200 year old estate in the southwest of the 'Green Island'? Self-catering or half-board in a comfortably furnished 2-6 person apartment on the fish-rich Lough Allua in unspoiled nature. Tirna Spideoga-the land of robins, lies between the villages of Inchigeelagh and Ballingeary, in one of the few Irish-cultural enclaves of the island. The cottage is nestled in a huge natural park. Its location provides a starting point for interesting tours, and nearby is the Gougane Barra National Park. A trip is also worth the harbor town of Bantry, the flower island 'Garinish Island' and Glengariff. This village is the starting point for a round trip on the Beara peninsula over the Healy Pass. Time should also be taken for the most famous route, the Ring of Kerry.

If you do not just want to spend your holidays in the car, there is a diverse program.

Ireland, the land of anglers and canoeists: The approximately 10km long Lough Allua, the lake in our area, offers trout, pike, perch, Friedfische etc. Our fishing boats, on request also with engine, as well as fishing shop and smoke house, are always at your disposal. Licenses are not required here. We also organize weekly deep-sea fishing tours for up to 30 different fish species, such as: B Congeraale, cod, pollack, coalfish, ling, wrasse, etc., but also different shark species such. B. the blue shark. Rods and fishing gear are included in the price for sea fishing, which is around 40 to 50 € for a day trip.

You can explore the Lough Allua and the River Lee in our one and two two-seat canoes, the daily rent is € 15, - per person incl. Pick up and drop off service.

Riders, hikers, nature lovers u. Cyclists: The 'Green Island' is characterized by a unique flora and fauna for Europe. If you want to explore these unique landscapes on your own, you can do so with the available tours or mountain bikes. The daily rent is € 7, -. Here almost every street is a bike path with very little traffic, behind every bend a new panorama awaits.

Ireland, the land for culture hungry. This country offers a lot of program for hikers, mountaineers, surfers, golfers, etc. We will provide you with an experienced and qualified hiking guide who will guide you through the history and geography of the surrounding area on organized hikes.

You may also want to explore the area from the back of our horses. A riding instructor gives lessons in the riding arena behind the house and for experienced riders, of course, rides are also possible. Riding helmets and boots in all sizes can be provided.

Guinness and Irish Folk: The pubs of Inchigeelagh and Ballingeary invite you for a leisurely sing along. Not far away is the highest pub in Ireland -Top of Coom-. Here as well as at the award-winning Mills Inn, the instruments are unpacked on Thursdays and weekends. Visit the world famous Jameson Distille in Midleton, where you can join a guided tour and hearty 'Whiskey Testing'.

Whether you are looking for the tranquility and seclusion of our former horse farm in a thatched cottage, plan a fishing rod, horseback riding or just want to unwind, cook or pamper yourself: The favored by the Gulf Stream West Cork and the landscape Warm and open residents will not forget you so quickly.

vader/zoon vis trip

  • 5 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.

Irland von seiner schönsten Seite!

  • 5 of 5

Es waren wirklich schöne Tage bei Greg und Siggi: Sowohl das Essen (3 Gänge Menü), dass sehr sehr lecker, abwechslungsreich, mit Liebe gekocht und in einem guten Preis-Leistungsverhältnis war, als auch das Angeln auf dem See mit Greg, werden uns in guter Erinnerung bleiben. Wir haben uns in den urigen Cottages sehr wohl gefühlt und kommen bestimmt in ein paar Jahren noch einmal wieder! Dann sind die Hechte, die wir gefangen haben bestimmt über 1 Meter lang!

Liebe Grüße von Jutta, Michael und Johannes

Wij gaan zeker weer terug naar deze mooie plek in Ierland.

Hartelijke groeten,

Sommerurlaub in Tir na Spideoga

  • 5 of 5

Wir ( 2 junge Erwachsene ) waren 1 Woche bei Sigi & Greg Gäste. Die Cottages sind in einer sehr schönen Lage und Umgebung. Auch wenn sie klein sind, ist alles was man braucht vorhanden und sie sind sehr gemütlich. Die beiden Gastgeber waren stets freundlich und hilfsbereit und konnten immer gute Reisevorschläge geben.

Das Abendessen dort war jeden Tag ein neues Highlight.

Die Umgebung eignet sich dort sehr gut zum Wandern, Radfahren und Angeln. Wenn man dazu noch mobil ist, bietet die Region einem wunderschöne Ausblicke Irlands. Zum krönenden Abschluss, waren wir noch mit zum Hochseeangeln, was sehr aufregend war.

Alles in allem können wir das Domizil nur empfehlen und kommen bestimmt wieder. :-)
