Ireland's Best Spots For Angling Holidays

Ireland's Best Spots For Angling Holidays

#Angling - Looking for a spot to cast your line in Ireland this winter? IrishCentral has you covered with their list of the best places in Ireland for a fishing holiday.

Boasting a climate that's (usually) kind to anglers all year round, Ireland is the perfect location for anyone planning their dream angling vacation or even a last-minute getaway.

And being only a few hours by road from end to end, you're never too far away from your pick of the catch, whether it's Lough Corrib's famous salmon and trout, codling at Rosses Point or even bluefin tuna in Donegal Bay.

Indeed, it's little wonder why angling tourism is worth three-quarters of a billion euro to the Irish economy each year.

IrishCentral has much more on the story HERE.

And for more specific details, the Huffington Post has a great guide to fly fishing in Ireland.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open. is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
