Ireland is one of the most popular sport fishing destinations in Europe and for good reason, too. The massive variety and quality of fishing has given the country an enviable reputation.
The island of Ireland stretches just 310 miles in length and 186 miles in width, but with a ratio of 1:35 (water to land), it seems everywhere you turn, there’s an ideal location to be fished.
Even the climate is kind to the angler, with temperate summers, mild winters and moderate rainfall throughout the year. And the warming influence of the North Atlantic Drift, which washes the south west coast, gives a milder climate than the geographical situation would indicate.
The result is a fabulous mix of cold and warm water fish, capable of exciting both the specialist angler and casual fisherman on a family holiday.
