Get To Know Us

For 30 years we have visited and fished in Ireland, primarily in and around Ballinamore, Country Leitrim. We have spent the past 5 years turning Abbey Lodge into an exclusive, high quality B&B. Abbey Lodge is located in a friendly village called Fenagh, just 5km from Ballinamore and perfectly placed for the dozens of loughs, lakes and canals that make up probably some of the best fishing in Europe

During your stay with us you will enjoy a good choice of breakfast, a comfortable bed and a hot shower. We would describe what you get at Abbey Lodge is as good as you get at home if not better, five star service in every way

In addition to the first class angling, Leitrim has so much to offer including places of interest, golf, walking, cycling, sailing or just taking in the fresh air and peace and quiet. And perhaps enjoying a pint at the local pub..

Every day is a sunny day in Leitrim, but occasionally, you may get caught out wearing the wrong clothes!

Angling in County Leitrim

My daily target is to catch 100lbs of fish in one session. This magical figure is always difficult to achieve, but not impossible. To date my personal best is 237lbs and my best bream is 7lb 10ozs. A close friend holds the best fish record at 9lbs 4ozs. I have been trying to beat this for over 20 years. One day..

It is fair to say I have a wide knowledge of the fishing here (I'm not an expert angler by any means as I don't think they exist!). I have achieved my goal of catching a salmon on fly both on the Moy in Ballina and at Galway weir with a lot of help from my great family friend and world champion Brendan Begley.

At Abbey Lodge we have tackle and bait sheds on-site and a fresh bait service available to us. I am always happy to share my local knowledge if needed and always enjoy discussions at one of the many friendly local pubs.
