Angling on Inniscarra Lake
Coachford Village is the gateway to the Inniscarra Reservoir and the 2.8km Greenway which provides secure parking behind your peg with other stretches of water such as the Garden Centre close by. Club and leisure anglers are more than welcome with local angling club members more than happy to provide advice or help arrange a friendly match. In the village you purchase your permit, buy bait and tackle-up whilst staying in one of a number of B&B’s in the area. Close by are several hotels and restaurants that welcome the anglers and Blarney and Cork City are just a short drive away. For those bringing the family there are plenty of attractions nearby; a little further afield there is Killarney and Kenmare where there are many things to do, and not far from some excellent beaches.
The Lee Valley encompasses many small towns providing a wealth of history and culture in this area of natural beauty; yet the vibrant Cork City is just half and hour away. Close by is Kinsale and the start of the Wild Atlantic Way the longest coastal driving experience in the world. www.wildatlanticway.com The county has miles of salmon and trout waters and Cork and Kinsale harbours provide the largest variety of fish species in Ireland.
Access to the region by road and air is good with Cork airport and ferry ports close by and Dublin just a three hours drive away.
