Keeper’s Arms, Bawnboy, Cavan


Catch plenty of fish and enjoy the “craic” with locals in a real family-run village pub owned by Bryan and Sheila McKiernan. There are eleven modern ensuite bedrooms power showers, TV and a coffee/tea tray and you can choose between BB or evening meal, bed and breakfast. Outside is a cold room for bait, tackle storage and a private car park. One free place for a group of ten anglers.

The Fishing – Lots of fish-filled lakes to choose from
There are five lakes within a few minutes drive of the Keeper’s Arms. Brackley is the most popular because it produces great mixed fishing and regularly chucks up large nets of bream and there are several quiet spots to park and fish. Bream to 5lb are also common on Templeport Lake, along with rudd, roach and hybrids, and it is a similar story on Bellaboy, Lakefield and Bunerky. For a change of scene there is Ballyconnell and Ballinamore less than
thirty minutes away.
