Fishing

Located on the shores of Lough Corrib, Glenlo Abbey Hotel & Estate is the perfect base for a fishing trip when in the West of Ireland.

Our team are happy to assist you in planning such an activity. Guided fishing ghillie packages can be arranged directly at reception. Fishing rods and life jackets provided, just bring your own rain gear.

Lough Corrib offers a plentiful supply of Trout, Salmon, Pike, Perch, and Bream making it a haven for the keenest of fisher.

Fly fishing on the Lough Corrib with the gregarious and charming Jim Riddell is an enthralling experience. Longtime Ghillie in these parts, Jim, combines Mastercraft fly fishing, from his 40 years of experience with many stories that entertain for hours as you motor the gentle waterways.

Jim has hosted quite a few celebrities and it is obvious why they keep coming back for more. He makes the fishing trip custom and special just for you, taking you through secret areas where the massive clouds of duck flies create magical shapes above the trees, and through thick reeds where he has carved out a special pathway for the boat.

He is a proud Irishman and his love for the sport is infectious.  Fishing is usually prolific in the Lough from Salmon to Trout, and the local catch is what guests savour in any of Glenlo’s eateries, the Oak Cellar Bistro, Palmers Bar and Kitchen or the iconic Pullman Restaurant.
