Lough Ennell Lake is about 8km long and 4km wide. Shallow, the lake has a slightly oval shape which is crossed by the Brosna River, a tributary of the Shannon.
Lough Ennell alone is the place of “pilgrimage” for the great fishing enthusiasts who come to tease the trout and the gudgeon. It is here that we have fished “record” catches, the biggest trout weighing more than 11.5 kgs! So don’t forget your fishing rod: it is possible to rent motorboats and rowboats to venture further on the calm waters of the lake.
The surroundings of Lough Ennell are ideal for those who love peace and quiet. Only a golf course, located near Mullingar on the north-eastern shores of the lake, is the attraction of the area . To put it plainly: Lough Ennell is a small country haven where it is good to throw your line!
