Nestled in the rolling countryside of Cavan, situated on a hilltop amongst the maze of rivers and lakes that make up the Lough Oughter and ultimately the Erne system, lies an ambitious and very promising new activity and fishing destination -Carafin Lodge. The project is the brainchild of local farmer and keen pike angler Pauric McGearty who, since returning from a ten-year stay in Australia, has decided to take advantage of the natural resources literally on his doorstep and develop Carafin Lake, the aim being to establish a leading angling and recreational amenity in County Cavan.
Pauric and his wife Clare are your hosts when you visit Carafin Lodge. They have constructed this purpose built facilities on the shores of Carafin lake. Pauric and Clare are small beef and poultry farmers with two young boys. With Pauric’s interest in all things Fishing & Outdoors and Clare’s experienced background in the hospitality sector — Carafin Lodge was born.
The property consists of a 3-bed house that sleeps 5, a 2 bedroom house that sleeps 4 and 1-bed apartment that sleeps 3. Between the three properties are a drying room and storage house with fridge/freezer and sink.
On the water’s edge is a storage container for fishing gear and water sports equipment, we also have a changing room, toilet and kitchenette on the lake shore, with a large floating jetty also.
Carafin Lodge is a perfect destination for a break away in Cavan. From the serious pike / course angler to someone out for a day’s fun with the water bikes, or paddle boats. If it’s their first time wetting a line, on a boat with a picnic basket, or a romantic day trip out on the river, there is something for everyone at Carafin Lodge’s natural scenic location.
Located in Irelands Hidden Heartlands, and along the Border Region on the Shores of Carafin Lake on the upper reaches of the mighty River Erne. Carafin Lodge offers the perfect location for Anglers to get easy access to the many lakes and rivers by bank or boat, or for those who just want to kick back and relax with the panoramic views over Carafin Lake.
