Angling is one of the more poular activities and there are many dedicated companies to help you get the most from your fishing trip. You can fish many of the inland lakes and rivers or for the more adventurous take on sea angling in the Atlantic.

It is possible to sea fish from the shore in many places and fishing for Mackeral and Pollock from Black Head is very poular during the summer season. Silver Mackeral are abundant and an easy catch even for the beginer.For the more experienced angler there are hotels and guest houses that cater expecially for your sport and you can hire boats and cottages along the coast or on the shores of Lough Derg.You can hire boats and equipment in Lough Derg and travel up the Shannon where there are many places to pull in for the night and cook your catch. You can hire boats with or without a skipper so you need not worry about strange waters.If you are not familair with the ocean it is advised to hire a Skipper when going to sea.
