The Lodge and its facilities are available as part of the package for those renting Beat One.

There is plenty to do for those who would like to explore this beautiful part of Ireland even if they are not anglers, and the Lodge accommodation is also available outside the fishing season, an ideal retreat for the complete range of recreational holidays from soft adventure to simply chilling out. You’ll find more about local activities here.

Shean Lodge Fishery is family run and has been owned by the same family since the 1940's. The fishery and adjoining lodge is still used by the family today as well as being rented to avid anglers during the fishing season. Thanks to the stability in ownership and to the excellent management of the park and rivers, catch records, which date back to the 1930's, have remained consistent over the years.

We hope that you find our web site interesting, entertaining and informative. If you would like to know more or have specific questions then please feel free to contact us.
