Camillaun Lodge & Angling Centre has been welcoming and re-welcoming guests to explore Connemara and Fish Lough Corrib for years. Situated on the eves of the quaint village of Oughterard and Lough Corrib, the great Western Way walking trail begins at our doorsteps.
Camillaun is no ordinary B&B. Fishing boats are available for hire on the property to fish and explore Lough Corrib with all ancillary services for the enthusiastic angler and lake adventurers. Flood lit tennis courts, a full sized billiards table, comfortable jacuzzi and excellent cuisine are just some of the extraordinary home comforts our guests enjoy.
Best Accomodation For
Our Angling Centre, located on site and with direct access to Lough Corrib, has a wide range of lake boats with outboard engines. In addition we have a wet room, rod room and fly-tying facilities. Ghillies/Guides are arranged upon request.
Non-fishing visitors often like to hire our boats and use them for exploring the many islands and inlets of Lough Corrib. Life jackets and packed lunch is provided. Explore the secret historical remains of churches and the ruins of the celts that came before Christianity.
One of Ireland’s most beautiful established walking trails, the Great Western Way, starts at our doorstep, travels along the scenic Glann Road on the shores of lough Corrib before crossing into bogland and forestry and winding its way towards north Connemara and county Mayo.
The lodge is equipped with a full size tennis court and billiards (snooker) table as well as an indoor jacuzzi and common rest areas. Boat hire is on site from our jetty. All rooms are en suite and our food is highly commended by guests. The village, it’s pubs and restaurants, are just a few minutes walk along a shortcut walking bridge connecting the property to the heart of the village.
Staying at Camillaun
With so many things to see and do both at the lodge and immediate environs our only complaint from guests has been that they didn’t stay long enough to enjoy it all. But whatever the length of you’re stay with us you’ll find plenty of ways to both exert and relax.
What our Guests Love Doing
Our guests love Camillaun as it’s both the perfect place to exert oneself aswell as relax. Favorite outdoor pursuits on our doorstep include fishing Lough Corrib, Walking the Great Western way, Hiking the Twelve Bens and Maamturks, Mountain Biking the Derroura trail and looped cycles around Connemara. After a good days exertion a hot shower, relaxing jacuzzi and a few pints in the nearby pubs are in order.
