To the west of Galway city, the Hotel rests on the shores of Lough Inagh, one of Connemara's most spectacular lakes. The Lodge is surrounded by majestic Mam Turks and spectacular Twelve Bens mountain ranges on all sides. A perfect haven for complete rest, relaxation, and romance Lough Inagh Lodge Hotel offers you all the comforts and pleasures of an elegant, modern hotel in an old-world atmosphere. Lough Inagh is also perfectly placed to take advantage of a number of outdoor pursuits and activities. 

Lough Inagh has six boats and the fishing starts early in July and fishes. The west shore fishes best, also all along the islands and river mouths are the chosen drifts. Lough Inagh is the largest lake in Connemara, and outboards are essential. There are experienced boatmen/ghillees available for the lake and river beats, with prior booking from Lough Inagh Lodge Hotel. 

In recent years the fishery has seen a resurgence of fish numbers, and in 2010 - 2012, the fishery has produced Salmon to 15lbs, Sea Trout to 5lbs and Brown Trout to 12lbs.

Top salmon flies the river beats are Sunray Shadow, Cascade, Silver Stoat, Badger and Silver Rat. Top salmon flies for the lake are Silver Daddy, Green Peter, Connemara Black, Green Dabbler and Bibio. Top sea trout flies for the lake are Silver Daddy, Donegal Blue, Jungle Alexander, Black Hopper, Silver Invicta, Jungle Bunny and Dabblers.

 Single handed rods of ten foot in length, and weighted 6-8 are the rods of choice on the fishery. Floating and intermediate lines with leaders of 6 - 15lbs are also required. There is no wading as such, but waders are useful on The Derryclare Butts, as one needs to stand in the lake. The fishery fishes best in high water, and it rarely gets coloured.
