An­glers are a top pri­or­ity A real Ir­ish wel­come awaits vis­i­tors to the Br­effni Arms T

Angling Times (UK) - - UK FISHERIES -

HIS stun­ning ho­tel in the town of Ar­vagh is well known by match an­glers for the reg­u­lar fes­ti­vals it spon­sors – at­tract­ing some of the sport’s big­gest names and be­ing sited close to the Ca­van-LeitrimLong­ford bor­der.

Hun­dreds of lakes keep an­glers pleased, in­clud­ing Gowna and Gul­ladoo, and there’s river fish­ing too – all just 90 min­utes from Dublin and Belfast.

Fam­ily-run, Br­effni of­fers 13 su­perbly-ap­pointed fam­ily and stan­dard guest bed­rooms on a B&B or B&B and evening meal ba­sis, with all the fa­cil­i­ties to en­sure a com­fort­able stay in­clud­ing Wi-Fi, multi-chan­nel TV and di­rect dial phones. Bar food is served all day along­side a sump­tu­ous restau­rant of­fer­ing mod­ern cui­sine and a range of fine wines – plus plenty of beer of course!

When you’re not re­lax­ing in the ho­tel it’s the fish­ing that’s the main or­der of busi­ness here, and if bream, roach and hy­brid sport is what you’re af­ter then Lough Gowna is the place, where you can catch any­thing be­tween 50lb and 80lb of them on cage feeder or slid­ing float tac­tics.

Come in closer on the pole with mag­gots over ground­bait for the roach, which can be caught to 2lb and over… if you’re lucky!

Sin­gle rooms from £55, fish­ing is free on most wa­ter­ways here
