Ballisodare River (5 Miles - 10km from Strandhill) - The river drains a catchment of 252 square miles which include Lough Arrow and Templehouse Lake. Most of the fishing action takes place below the 'butt' of the Ballisodare Falls. There is a small run of Spring Salmon and in June/July the peak of its large grilse run is seen.

Lough Arrow (24 miles/ 42 km from Strandhill) - Arrow is one of the great Irish Trout fishing loughs, where the Trout average 1.5lb and fish to 7ib are taken on the fly annually. It is located 4 miles north west of Boyle with Ballymote 6 miles away. It is a limestone lough incredibly rich and while it has some feeder streams it is mainly spring fed. It is no longer stocked so anglers should not expect big catches what you do get is quality trout, but fewer (and indeed more challenging).

Ben Bulben forms part of the Dartry Mountain Range and all are well worth the visit. Within Strandhill there is a magnificent scenic walk along Culleenamore strand which can be accessed along the winding coast of the Strandhill Peninsula.
