    Marie and Tom were gracious hosts--I had a great experience! They made me feel very welcome in their home. Tom ate breakfast with me every morning, talked about Irish history and provided me with daily itineraries and bus routes for me to use, if I wanted. My last day I mentioned that I'd never tried "plaice" before, so Marie went to the fish market and fried me up a filet for me to try! Yum!

    What a great way to learn about Irish culture and get to know some locals!

    Thanks, Marie & Tom!

    Mir hat es bei Mary und Tom sehr gut gefallen. Sie waren sehr führsorglich und haben mir mit allem geholfen. Das tägliche Frühstsück war zufriedenstellend und die Umgebung war sicher! ich hatte nur 10 Minuten mit dem Bus zu meiner Arbeit, was sehr enstpannend war. Tom und Mary sind wirklich liebevolle Gastgeber und deren Hunde sind lieb.

    Ich hatte eine sehr positive und schöne Zeit bei Ihnen!
