Anglers best set to reel in riverside site

A real gem of a property with excellent tourism development potential has come onto the market in the Boyne Valley.
Swynnerton Lodge, an eight-bedroom fishing lodge on 36ac, is perched on the banks of the River Boyne only five minutes from Navan, Co Meath.
It comes with its own salmon hatchery, fishing hut and fishing rights with 470m of river frontage.
Auctioneer John Harrington, of Smith Harrington, is expecting to get in excess of €1m for the property when it goes to auction on September 27.
It is located in an idyllic spot at Blackcastle, on the Boyne, on the Slane road out of Navan.
The lodge and its stretch of river have been renowned far and wide for excellent salmon and trout fishing.
Built as a private house, the 4,000ft2 residence and its surrounds would be an ideal base for anglers. The house needs some attention but it already has a lot of to offer with its eight bedrooms, three fine reception rooms with river views, kitchen, bathrooms and barbeque room.
