Meadows Fishery, Fanad
Telephone: +353 (0)86
It would be very easy to sit for hours on the gentle hills between ‘The Green Spot’ (Tamney) and ‘The Narrow Quarter’ (Kerrykeel) on the beautiful
Peninsula and admire the fabulous views over Mulroy Bay towards Muckish mountain.
However, you can do even better than that as you can still admire the
same view as you try for a rainbow trout at the
Fishery located just off the R246 north of Kerrykeel, about a 30-minute drive
This two acre stream-fed fishery opened a few years ago and now offers
the opportunity for anglers to enjoy some first rate, and perhaps
unique, fishing for rainbows within sight of the sea.
While this is a relatively new fishery it has a good variety of insect
life with chironomids, olives and sedges all present.
The lake is already easy on the eye but a good number of trees and
shrubs have been planted around the banks and as these grow it will
add to the setting as well as providing cover and habitat for fish and
Fishing Holiday In
Most of the water in the fishery is around four to five feet in depth but there is also a deep
section on the western side giving the fish refuge in adverse weather
There are a number of well-positioned seats around the lake to help you
relax and enjoy the fresh, clean sea air.
The fishing hut provides excellent facilities for cooking, tea, coffee
and refreshments and there are a number of picnic tables and a toilet.
Families are welcome and for those who want to take up or try their hand
at the sport there are rods for hire and tuition available
Catch and release fishing is practised after the quota has been reached.
All children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult and wear the
lifejackets provided. Angling is from 9am to sunset and booking is
advisable as numbers are limited.
