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!
