BROWNSTOWN LODGE is a private fishing lodge & country house on the shores of the world famous brown trout and pike Lough Carra in County Mayo, Ireland. The lodge has 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms with shower and bath, a large living room with open kitchen, induction hob and open fireplace. Satellite TV, sound bar, W-Lan, washing machine and dryer are further features, as well as the possibility of renting an on-site motor boat, fishing and fly fishing rods as well as an echosounder for a fee.
The secluded location of the lodge in this peaceful, idyllic Irish countryside, with no noise and views across the crystal clear Lough Carra, is probably unique to those seeking relaxation. A piece of "Robinson Crusoe" feeling with the amenities of a high-class home.
SURROUNDINGS: In a few minutes drive you reach the town of Ballinrobe, which with its Irish charm and the nice pubs, the quaint shops and a huge supermarket is the ideal starting point for shopping and evening activities.
FISHING: Lough Carra is one of Ireland's best-known limestone lakes, known for its Lough-style fishing and good pike and perch. Furthermore, you can also reach in just a few minutes the great lakes of the Irish West: Lough Mask and Lough Corrib, which probably no fisherman should be a foreign word. Here daily motorboats and rowing boats can be rented. Compared to our "Homemater" the Lough Carra, these lakes are very rocky and should not be used in storm and wind. The lodge is just 35 minutes' drive from Ireland's most famous salmon river, River Moy.
EXCURSIONS: In addition to ideal fishing, Brownstown Lodge is an ideal base for day trips to Galway, Ashford Castle, Ballina, the Wild Atlantic Way, Connemara, the white West Coast beaches or the beautiful County Donegal. Golfing is also possible in the immediate vicinity of the lodge - as is the town Ballinrobe known for its horse races.
HOW TO GET THERE: Brownstown Lodge Dublin is about 2.5 - 3 hours and mostly runs to Galway via the extremely well-developed highway. It could also be served by Knock Airport which is only 52 km away and 45 minutes drive from the lodge.
