Riverbank Cottages

 

Riverbank Cottages are a semi-detached property offering two self-contained accommodations, both with one double ensuite and two twin bedrooms – so the total is five beds in each cottage.

All three cottages are fully equipped with modern facilities including a washer/dryer, dishwasher and microwave. Heating and cooking is by electric and there is a TV and all bed linen and towels are provided. Each cottage has its own private off-road parking, bait fridge, tackle storage and are located within an easy stroll to local pub.

The Fishing

Anglers staying in the cottages have private and exclusive access to a substantial stretch of the Scarriff River – also known as the Graney River – that is particularly productive in spring when massive shoals of roach and hybrids pack into the this lovely stretch of water. But there are also dozens of accessible lakes offering an opportunity to catch specimen bream, tench, roach, hybrids and some monster pike. You can tackle the massive waters of Derg or choose from a string of free-to-fish loughs such as Lough Graney, O’Grady, Bridget, Kilgorry and Doon Lake, all within a 30 minute drive.
