Ballynahinch River, County Down

This lake is definitely worth seeing on any tours of Ireland.


In a superb setting of mountains, called the Twelve Bens of Connemara, lies Ballynahinch Lake.

This forms part of the famous Ballynahinch fishery.

A fine salmon river empties the lake into a creek of Bertraghboy Bay.


The West of Ireland is not the driest of places, but the angler can be thankful for a steady downpour.

Nothing is more enlivening than the sight of a salmon-rive at the tail end of a flood with a glint of fish in it.


Ballynahinch Lake, though mainly noted for the excellence of its sea trout, is well stocked with grilse in the summer months.


On the southern shore of the lake is Ballynahinch Castle, which has a rich history.

It is a favourite place for clients of Ireland and Scotland Luxury Tours to stay.

There is also a great opportunity to try out the fishing with an expert guide.
