Fishing

The Harbour Master’s House B&B is built on the banks of the Grand Canal at Shannon Harbour, Co Offaly and is renowned as one of the best Coarse Fishing and Trout Fishing locations in Ireland. Our stunning position on the river bank is the perfect spot to set out on a fishing trip with many small rivers emptying into the River Shannon. These included the Little Brosna River, the River Blackwater, the Silver River, the Camcor River, the Gowlan River, River Bullock Island and the Grand Canal itself. If you want big water fishing then Lough Derg is just a short drive away. You could say at The Harbour Master’s House B&B, Shannon Harbour we are awash with Rivers, Canals and Loughs!

At The Harbour Master’s House B&B we also provide a bait shed, drying rooms, fridges and storage for the angler. Our secure car parking facility is to the rear of the house.

The range of fish in our locality is varied: Trout (Brown, Rainbow & Camcor), Roach, Rudd, Bream, Eels, Tench, Pikes and Perch. There are also a number of managed lakes and fishing pounds close by; like Cloghan which is just a short drive away from The Harbour Master’s House B&B.

There are well stocked Fishing & Bait shops in the locality in Birr and Banagher, Co Offaly.
