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.
