Pride of Ireland
Make this your base for a top break
THIS stunning hotel in the town of Arvagh is well-known among match anglers for the regular festivals it sponsors. It is located close to the Cavan-Leitrim-Longford border, and there are hundreds of lakes nearby, including Gowna and Gulladoo, with river fishing too... and it’s all just 90 minutes from Dublin and Belfast.
The family-run Breffni Arms offers 13 superb family and standard guest bedrooms on a B&B or half-board basis.
Facilities include Wi-Fi, multi-channel TV and direct dial phones. On the dining front, bar food is served throughout the day, and there’s a sumptuous restaurant offering modern cuisine and a range of fine wines and beers.
When it comes to the fishing, bream, roach and hybrid sport is on your doorstep, and at Lough Gowna you can catch between 50lb and 80lb of quality silvers on cage feeder or slider float tactics. Come in closer on the pole with maggots over groundbait for the roach, which can be caught up to and over 2lb if you’re lucky.
