Tourin House and Gardens

We pride ourselves on promoting ladies of all ages, so if you do not fish and would love to learn, then, we have professional fly fishing instructors on hand to teach the art of fishing with double or singlehanded fly rods.

  • Dromana House & Gardens - perched on a rocky outcrop overlooking the strikingly beautiful, unspoilt river Blackwater, Dromana is surrounded by a 600 acre privately owned estate with numerous woodland and garden walks. Several interesting historic follies are also to be seen throughout the grounds including an ancient outer fortification, boathouse and slipway down to the river. This period property is lovingly maintained by the 21st generation of the same family who have lived on this location since 1200.

  • Tourin House & Gardens - three miles from Cappoquin and the Heritage town of Lismore, over 5 acres of rare, mature woodland and walled garden offer a beautiful seasonal display. The original historic sixteenth century tower house still stands and can be seen from the garden overlooking the river Blackwater.

  • Lismore Castle - this historical gem on the Blackwater offers many distractions for both the fisherman and fisherman's widow alike!

  • Fermoy - Fermoy is a small town (population approx. 5,000) situated in the centre of the lush Blackwater Valley. It is on the crossroads between the Rosslare/Killarney and Dublin/Cork routes. Renowned for inland fishing it is an attractive base to explore the history and amenities of North and East Co. Cork.

  • Cork City - The ultimate shopping experience in this neck of the woods is but a 40 minute drive away!
