Fortwilliam is a privately owned rural Estate located close to the historic small town of Lismore on a beautiful Munster stretch of the River Blackwater in Co Waterford.

Central to the property is Fortwilliam House built in the Tudor Revival Style in 1840 by John Gumbleton. The Estate is a working in hand farm with rich productive soils supporting tillage and cattle enterprises set in glorious surroundings with parkland trees and overlooking the River Blackwater.

The reknown Fortwilliam Fishery offers 3.5miles of double bank Salmon and Trout Fishing and includes the infamous Lismore Castle Beat and Fortwilliam Beats known as The Ellis, Golf Course, The Glenmore and Bishops Beats.

There are 3 delightful holiday cottages and guests have access to the walled garden and Woodland areas to enjoy during their stayas well as the riverbanks .

Fortwilliam was purchased privately by the Evans Bevan Family in 2013 and significant improvements have been made to the fishing and farm as well as refurbishment of the holiday cottages. Fortwilliam is a wonderful place to stay and from which to explore the many pleasures of County Waterford further afield as well as enjoying the superb fishing on the doorstep.
