In July 2002 a 23lb trout was caught, one of the biggest ever on the lake! Fish also for salmon, pike and perch.Take a walk along the lake front to Ballycurrin lighthouse and Ballycurrin Demesne. Lough Corrib is a vast lake of 41,600 acres. It is mostly shallows and contains 365 islands. For the fisherman, the water is very clear and it holds a good stock of trout which average over 1lb.


Travel is by car and Ballycurrin is 4 miles from Headford town, which has all amenities including shops, pubs, choice of restaurants and a large supermarket. Galway City Centre is within 25 minutes drive.

This is an ideal location for exploring the West of Ireland, Connemara and Yeats Country.

Connemara is wonderfully scenic and stretches from Galway up into Mayo. There are many driving, walking and cycling routes and it would take weeks to truly explore all of Connemara but there are many one day routes that can be taken from Ballycurrin Lodge to give you a true sense of the beauty of Connemara. These routes include; Kylemore Abbey and its gardens; the landing place of Alock and Brown in Clifden; Killary Fjord and the location for films such as The Quiet Man and The Field.

Galway City is a vibrant town and has a pulsating night life of traditional bars, live music venues, wide variety of dining options and modern clubs.

Board the luxurious Corrib Princess from Galway city and enjoy a 90 minute cruise along Lake Corrib experiencing the lakes traditional trade routes.

"Stunning location, memorable stay"

January is not the greatest time to book a house by a lake in Ireland but I am so glad we did. The owner gave us a lovely warm welcome, showed us where everything was and made sure we had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. This is such a warm beautifully comfortable house and the view of the lake is stunning. lots of floor to ceiling windows to make the most of it and a large terrace outside for summer lounging and dining. Our first evening was spent in front of the fire with just the sound of the lake lapping and the occasional rustle of wind through the trees, (lots of firewood thoughtfully provided). Sofas and chairs really comfortable. Exactly the peace and quiet we needed. The house was spotlessly clean and the kitchen was fully equipped with everything we needed and more. The bedrooms were spacious, warm and comfortable, with lots of storage for clothes. A wide range of indoor entertainment was provided including a large TV (in separate room) with all the channels we could watch. The sun shone one afternoon while we were there so we were able to sit and read our books in the sun lounge – bliss, in January. We will definitely stay here again. It is a great location with lots to do outdoors (and inside if the weather is dull). It is only 10 minutes from Headford which has a large supermarket, pubs and restaurants and only 25 minutes from Galway city. Overall, we thought it was a terrific place to stay and would recommend it to our friends without hesitation!
