“Fortwilliam fishing is to my mind the whole package that a fishing holiday should be. 5 beats with fly and spinning catered for on each beat. Great gillies with experience, patience and advice with a smile. The banks are kept beautifully and all but one beat very easily accessible. Huts are on each beat to shelter should the rain come or to sit and watch the wildlife over lunch.
The river itself offers stunning scenery with the Castle beat being directly under Lismore Castle.
We have been coming here for 18 years+ and love it so much we built a house here. It is now a friendly family run working farm with the onus being on creating the perfect fishing break. Lismore itself is a heritage town with ample restaurants and the locals always ready to have the craic over a pint or three of ‘ the black stuff’. Above all every one you meet on the Estates beats are all looking for the same thing – Great private fishing beautiful scenery wonderful wild life and tranquility heaven on earth.”
