One of Ireland’s best-known family fisheries, Tooman enjoys a commanding position overlooking the Rinn River in County Leitrim (for which Tooman also has rights to fish). Managed by its current owners for the last two decades, Tooman was last stocked with 12,000 British Carp in 2005 and now boasts some of Ireland’s finest angling sport fish including Golden Tench, Roach, Golden Rudd, Gudgeon, Golden Orfe and Ghost Carp. With an average success of 3 to 5 pounds, the Tooman lakes are also known to frequently return much higher weights ranging from 8 to 28 pounds. With 120 competitions per year, including three major festivals, Clubs travel to Tooman from across Ireland, Northern Ireland and the UK including Lock Side, East Belfast, Lurgon, ESB and many others. In addition to the competition lake, Tooman maintains a smaller pleasure lake and specimen lake. The property also has a stock pond above the Fishery.
Tooman was built in the 1950’s and has an approximate footprint of 3000 square foot. The main house has two main en-suite bedrooms, sitting room with fireplace, small office, large kitchen, utility room and family room. The property also has an attached self-catering apartment. This comfortable extension includes a modern kitchen and dining room, large sitting room with log burner, two double bedrooms (one en-suite) and a second bathroom. The main house and apartment are serviced by a Mulberry multi purpose stove with back boiler that heats all the water.
