White Hill Country House B&B/Self-Catering
Reviewed 5 August 2014 via mobile

A little over an hours drive from Dublin, myself and a friend arrived at early evening, Mary and Gerald were very welcoming, the rooms are very spacious, clean and warm. I had an amazing fry up before setting off on a mission to catch a monster! A five minute walk over the hill behind the house and we were at a fishing spot unavailable to other anglers unless on a boat or with permission from Mary and Gerard, I could see plenty of others fishing on the other side of the lake yet I was the only one on the white hill side, was this a good thing I thought, undoubtedly yes! A dead bait cast 50 or so feet out, something picked it up, I let it run, suddenly it stopped, had it been dropped? My heart is pounding! I took up the slack and struck into the unknown, a heavy weight resisted, then began to swim towards me! I reeled frantically, excited and scared I could see swirls and updrafts of water caused by the thrusting sways of the beasts gigantic caudal fin, I was bursting with adrenaline, almost numb, after many runs, each one worrying me to the bone in case the trebles came free, whiplash with its whippy tale and the beast was done! :D I had no scales to weigh this girl but she was the biggest pike I've ever had the pleasure of landing, I reckon she was close to 24 lbs, another was landed not long after, approximately 9 lbs on a green repala, the short walk back to the B&B was rewarded with tea and biscuits and the retelling of the tales of tails caught that unforgettable day. Thanks for having us Mary and Gerard!

5 mins from town centre, just over the hill you can fish in the privately owned fishing spots, exclusive to white hill country house. It's also only a 5 minute walk to concra wood golf & country club! Gerard & Mary (owners) so kind! Thanks again for your wonderful hospitality!:)
