I came to live in Portumna 6 years ago with my husband Mike to escape the rat race of big city life. We both love to get out onto the Shannon when we are not busy with our guests at the B&B. Another favorite place is Portumna Forest Park where we can walk or cycle down to the lake or see the deer and other wild life. The B&B gives us the opportunity to meet people from all over the world and share our experiences. When we can find the time Mike likes to go fishing on the river or lough and I now have taken up painting.
