Glasshouse Lake

Glasshouse Lake is a medium to large lake covering 54 hectares located approximately 7km north east of Carrigallen. This lake is largely reed fringed with the exception of the roadside shoreline and small sections of the eastern and western shores. The roadside shoreline is generally shallow but areas of deeper water occur off the eastern and western shores. The lake contains reasonable stocks of small to medium sized pike but larger fish are known to be present. There is good access via a lakeside road to bank fishing from swims in a “Coillte” forest. The proximity of roadside access to the waters edge means that this venue is suitable for anglers with reduced mobility. Anglers should be aware that wading at this location can be hazardous due to the unstable nature of the lake bed and should be avoided. It is possible to launch a boat from the roadside before the entrance to the forest.
