If fishing is your sport, Ballinamore is one of the best developed angling centres in Ireland located in one of the ‘big catch’ Lakeland districts. Ballinamore is internationally renowned for its abundance of coarse angling waters. Being in the centre of Leitrim’s lakeland district there are a minimum of 40 lakes within a 10km radius of the town.
Most of the waters can be fished from the shore, however for those who wish to explore further, boats are available locally for hire, for the angler who like canal fishing, we now have the new beautifully restored Canal, a magnificent fishing venture of Bream, Raoch, Tench Perch, Eel, and Pike.
Over the years, we have hosted many angling draws in the hotel, including the world angling pairs championships on serval occasions, we have developed a deep connection with fishermen/woman alike and have made many friends in the industry, returning year on year to stay with us.
