Delphi Lodge

Delphi Lodge, Ireland's most famous fishing lodge, was for many years the sporting playground of the Marquis of Sligo. A large comfortable 1830's country house, with great atmosphere, it is set in a deep valley of unparalleled beauty. The spectacular mountain location has inspired many writers over the years and Delphi was recently described by the New York Times as "an inviolable wilderness preserve" and by the Financial Times as "an estate of fabulous beauty".

The famous Delphi Fishery offers private fly-fishing for wild salmon and sea trout on a delightful little river and lake system.

Though fishing is a primary pastime, Delphi is also popular with hill walkers, artists, golfers and horsemen and, being very remote, it offers real peace and relaxation to all guests. On wet days a billiard room, an eclectic library and a fine wine list help to pass the time. Guests normally eat together at a vast oak table and the atmosphere is that of a friendly house party.
