Map of Lough Bofinne


An attractive, convenient, 25 acre, clear water lake, 3 miles east from Bantry. A unique location, because two roads fringe 75% of the lake's margin, creating exceptional shore angling facilities. Boats are available if required. An excellent stock of Rainbow Trout and some Brown Trout are present, and the lake is restocked regularly with adult Rainbow Trout to maintain a high stock density, and to give satisfactory angling returns. Occasional Pike, Perch, Eels and Rudd are also present. Successful angling methods include worms with a float artificial flies or small spinners.
