Fishing Breaks Ireland
After taking leave from the bustle of your daily existence, you deserve to enjoy your activity break in Ireland in peace. And fishing lets you do exactly that!
Imagine golden rays of sunshine reaching through a gentle mist, the dew still on the grass and trees and the fresh country air on your face. Mountains reaching high up to the sky scored with gushing streams running to the meandering river as it winds its way though the valley past ancient monuments under the shade of the forest and onwards to the river Suir. Nothing beats early morning fishing in the river Aherlow, in such quiet and tranquil surroundings. The river offers Brown Trout and Perch, whilst just a short drive away the River Suir also has stocks of Salmon. Fishing permits can be obtained in the tourist office in Cahir, whilst no permit is required to fish in the river Aherlow. The river Blackwater in Fermoy is well stocked and again only a short drive away. Aherlow attracts visitors from all over the country and fishing is fast becoming one of the most popular things to do in Tipperary and most pleasurable.
In Ireland a licence is required for Salmon fishing – this can be obtained from the Regional Fisheries Board, Clonmel, Tel: 052 23624.
Many rivers or sections of rivers also require a permit for Trout fishing
A permit for the river Suir at Cahir can be obtained at The Heritage Newsagent, Cahir, Tel: 052 42730. This covers fly fishing 3 miles each side of the Cahir bridge. Cost is €20 per day or €75 per week. The tackle shop, Cuileoga Outdoors is opposite The Heritage.
