Rivers And Lakes

The Cloonee Lakes

Area: Lakes, Boat Fishing
Fishing: brown trout
Levels: Fly-casting experience recommended, but not essential.

Drive west for 15 minutes along the Beara Peninsula, and you will arrive at the Lake House. There, your Ghillie will take a boat, and row you out onto the Cloonee Lakes.
The trout in these lakes will bring your learning curve up, as the take is so fast that you can’t afford to be sleeping on the job!
Wet flies are the bait for these lakes, and a quick strike is essential.
Maximum of two persons per boat and Ghillie.

Area: Mountain Lake, Shore Fishing
Fishing: Brown Trout and stocked Rainbow Trout
Level: All levels of experience, also suitable for beginners

Just 15 minutes away from Kenmare on the Molls Gap~Sneem road, lies Barfinnihy Mountain & lake. Fully stocked with Rainbow trout; voracious feeders who weigh in at an average of 11/2 lb., with a few “trophy” fish thrown in for good measure, weighing up to 5lb!
bright flies, flashy mepps, and worms are very successful for bait.
A wonderfully, scenic place to be introduced to fishing.

The Laune River

Area: Inland River,
Bank fishing on the Laune River in Beaufort, Killarney
Fishing: Wild Brown Trout and Salmon.
Level: All levels

An early start and an hour’s scenic drive through the renowned Gap of Dunloe, bring you to the beautiful Laune River in Beaufort, a classic “fishing river”. The excursion allows for a 2 to 3 hours of fishing, and we can arrange picnic lunches or reservations for lunch or dinner if required.
In order to drive through the Gap of Dunloe, we must depart the Sheen Falls before 7.45 am, this enables us to catch the morning rise on the river. An evening excursion is also possible to catch the evening rise,
returning home via the Gap, and Kate Kearney’s Cottage if so desired.
