With over 3,100km of coastline, 70,000km of waterways and 12,000 lakes – Ireland is a prime location for a fishing holiday.
With our huge network of coastline, rivers, loughs and canals to explore, Ireland is the one of the world’s premier coarse angling destinations.
Thanks to the North Atlantic Drift, the temperate Irish climate with mild summers and winters, and plenty of rainfall, results in a fabulous mixture of cold and warm water fish species.
Here are just a few examples of our self catering houses that are just perfect for a fishing holiday in Ireland.
