Things to Do
Inniscarra is a reservoir, the flooded River Lee valley, and provides wonderful angling on a number of locations around the “lake”, including a new walkway in Coachford, which is the latest facility, which is due to open in May 2014.
Fishing Tackle and bait:
We are going to be offering basic fishing tackle and bait, both at the house and via a mobile facility, which will be available at the draws of the festivals. We will be stocking all the bits and pieces you need to make your trip a success!
Bed and Breakfast:
We will have a couple of dog friendly rooms on a bed and breakfast basis. We also offer evening meals, including vegetarian. There are other places are available locally. We can point you in the direction of suitable accommodation, be that B&B or hotel!
BUT its not all about the fishing (honest)!! So why not bring the family?!?
