ABOUT THE AREA
Studded with megalithic tombs, ring forts and mounds, Roscommon is shrouded in myth and history. Other historical highlights of this underrated county include restored mansions, monastic ruins and some superb museums.
Beyond the romance of times past, Roscommon's rolling countryside is splashed with lakes and cleaved by the Rivers Shannon and Suck, providing fantastic fishing and boating opportunities.
Ballinlough ('Baile an Locha', meaning 'the town of the lake') is a small town in county Roscommon, situated close to the borders of both counties Mayo and Galway. Straddling the N60, Roscommon to Castlebar road, Ballinlough is located between Ballyhaunis and Castlerea.
The town is 30km from Ireland West Airport Knock and 22km from Knock Shrine.
Nestling amidst beautiful rugged scenery, the Ballinlough area is a haven for anglers, with Lake O'Flynn, 1.6kms north of the town, providing a popular fishing spot for locals and tourists alike. The 300 acre rich limestone lake, which is the source of the River Suck, is noted in particular for brown trout fishing. On the southern shore of the lake there is good public access with a boat harbour, pier and spacious car park.
Lake O'Flynn is part of the Shannon Regional Fisheries Board's 'Midland Fisheries Group' of managed waters and anglers require a fishing permit to fish here. Fishing permits can be purchased from local agents.
There are a number of other fishing lakes and rivers in close proximity to Ballinlough. Other outdoor attractions include a choice of golf courses, walkways, hiking trails and a series of looped walks in nearby Cloonfad.
