A new season opens shortly on Corrib, and this year anglers will have a new option for accommodation, boat hire and guiding, with the opening of Birchall Guesthouse on the western shore of the lough.

Birchall Guesthouse

The spectacular lodge, owned and run by and Michelle and Padraig Fahy, will offer luxury accommodation for anglers and non-angling guests alike. All rooms are ensuite, with a traditional full irish breakfast served each morning with fresh juices and fruits.

When not fishing, enjoy relaxing in the stunning sunroom taking in the views of the lake and its wildlife, or the games room with puzzles, TV and books to unwind. The gym is available should you like to work out, with a sauna and steam room too.


Michelle and Padraig Fahy



Padraig is a well-known angler and guide in his own right, and has a great knowledge of both Corrib and nearby fisheries in Connemara. His intimate knowledge of the lake will allow guests to get the most from their visit, and should see plenty of repeat business. Guided and non-guided angling can be booked, with boats and engines provided to guests.

It’s great to see a new business catering for anglers on Lough Corrib, and we wish Padraig and Michelle every success in their new venture!
