Brown Trout Fishing Holiday in Ireland Angling on Lough Corrib

Angling for brown trout on an Irish lough or river is something that would appeal to every keen fisherman. Fishing holidays in Ireland allowing anglers to do just that are on offer from the luxury Lisloughrey Lodge Spa Hotel, which stands on the 33-mile long Lough Corrib in County Mayo in the west of Ireland, just north of Galway.

Lisloughrey Lodge is a 4-star country house hotel which was the home of the Guinness family until the early 1900s. It was a popular place for royal visits, for hunting and fishing parties, and the tradition continues with these Irish fishing holidays, thanks to the rich stocks of brown trout, salmon and pike that live in Lough Corrib.
