The welcoming Mayfly Hotel sits on the banks of the River Moy in Foxford, Co. Mayo and is only five minutes’ drive from the shores of Lough Conn, making it ideal for anglers seeking a great getaway and great salmon, brown trout, pike and sea trout fishing.
The hotel has recently been refurbished to the highest standards, and offers a warm welcome from manager James and his team, a friendly atmosphere, great food and regular live music in Poacher’s Bar.
It’s not just a perfect location for anglers, however. Foxford lies between the mountain ranges of the Nephin Begs and Ox Mountains, and is on the Foxford Way, an 86km waymarked walking trail that circles Foxford, taking in roads, mountain trails, bogland, lake shores, riverbanks and ancient archaeological sites along the way.
And of course, there’s the world-famous Foxford Woollen Mills nearby, where you can marvel at the working mill, browse and shop to your heart’s content.
Food forms a core element of the offering at the Mayfly Hotel, and chef Lee Byrne is passionate about using fresh, locally sourced high-quality ingredients to present diners with simple dishes, done well. Lee endeavours to source all ingredients within a 35km radius of the hotel.
