Camillaun Angling Centre is a premier Guest House and renowned Brown Trout Fishery with wet and dry fly fishing, dapping and trolling on Lough Corrib in Oughterard, Co Galway, Ireland.
Camillaun, situated in a secluded riverside setting is family run with all the advantages of a modern house yet still embracing the elegance of bygone days.
The guest accommodation includes rooms with beautiful views of the Owenriff River and countryside. New facilities have recently been added which include a games room with full size snooker table, a fly-tying desk and reading lounge.

The boats moored in the garden have direct access to Lough Corrib.
