Fishing in Ireland
FIND AND BOOK YOUR FISHING CHARTER

They say that Ireland is one of the countries with the highest beer consumption per capita in the world. But besides drinking Irish dry stout like Guinness, you can also go fishing in Ireland. Indeed, the island is considered a top sport fishing destination. The fresh water fishing in the lakes and the rivers features pike fishing, salmon fishing, coarse fishing and trout fishing. The 3000km coastline with all its bays, beaches and cliffs provide great sea fishing in Ireland. Inshore anglers practice fly fishing, spinning and bottom fishing. Offshore the fishing charters fish for cod, ling, skate, conger, gurnard, shark and pollack on the wrecks.

Fishing in Ireland

Shore fishing in Ireland

Spinning from the shore or in a small boat, some very nice sea bass, sea trout, mackerel and pollack can be caught with top water lures, poppers, spinner baits, stick-bait using the "walking-the-dog" action. The best flies on the fly fishing rod are streamers and the Lefty's Deceiver fly combining white and blue for example, imitating small bait fish.

Offshore fishing in Ireland

Fishing charters in Kinsale, Ballycotton, Dingle, Galway, Youghal or Donegal organize deep sea fishing tours, both private charters and shared charters, and provide the captain, fishing tackle, bait & lures and all you need to enjoy a memorable day at seas. The targeted species can be big shark, skate; or tope and flatfish over sandy ground.

Fishing one of the many charted wrecks off the Irish coast is probably the best guarantee to catch decent sized cod, pollack, conger or ling. Wreck fishing is always an unforgettable experience.

FISHING SEASON IN Ireland

Deep sea fishing in Ireland is possible all year round, although the best time is between the end of March and October. Not only because the fish are more active when the water is warmer, but also because of the weather conditions. In winter the weather is pretty unstable and makes fishing during the colder months pretty difficult.
