Ireland has gained a reputation as one of the best fishing destinations due to the variety and quality of our fish.
Surrounded by the Irish Sea, the North Sea and the Atlantic Ocean together with the fact that we have 14,000 miles of fish-bearing rivers and thousands of lakes, Ireland is surely a fishing paradise.
Our waters are the cleanest in Europe and probably the most lightly fished waters in Europe. Full Rivers and uncrowded riverbanks mean anglers can enjoy their fishing in peace and quiet in a pleasant countryside.
There is no closed season enabling fishing to continue all year long. From secluded ponds to the great loughs and fast flowing rivers to tranquil canal stretches, Ireland offers a whole range of wild coarse fisheries.
The pursuit of salmon, trout and sea trout holds a very important place in Irish culture and tradition and our waters continue to yield world-class fishing for native wild game fish.
On the south and west coasts, the warm North Atlantic Drift merges with the cooler waters of the Arctic. Sub-tropical species intermingle with cold water fish offering anglers a remarkable choice of catch and an exhilarating fishing experience.
On the north coast the cool Atlantic offers cold-water species – so you’re spoiled for choice!
Whether you are an experienced angler or want to test the waters with a fishing lesson we can suggest a Select Hotel to suit your needs.
