Cloonamoyne Fishery (the red star) is accessed from the Crossmolina / Pontoon road (r315), approximately two miles out of Crossmolina, on the left (see big arrow) beyond the main gate to Enniscoe House.
Follow the drive from the sign-posted entrance through the woodlands and then past the ancient walled gardens of the manor house. The fishing lodge is about one mile from the main road, and the boats a further fifty yards along the shore.
There is an area for leaving cars. In the interest of all who use the shoreline it is always nice if vehicles are parked here for the day. Because what is so very attractive about Cloonamoyne is its location. Solitude, tranquility, beauty are all characteristics of this special place. Access is limited to those who are guests of the fishery or resident at the house, so, if not in a rush, it can be a good thing just to sit and watch for a dog otter ploughing across the bay, a flight of curlews sweeping the shore, or even, if you’re very lucky, a pine marten scuttling between the bushes.
