Where to Fish

Along with our collection of features written about angling in Ireland and our collection of maps, this page provides even more information on where and when to catch fish in Ireland. It is a never ending process and we have gone out of our way to porovide the most accurate directions – which is never an easy thing here in Ireland! In-car navigation systems are working much better across the island and are a great aid for those who have them. 


  We will be glad of any help you can provide in extending the coverage of this programme by creating your own “where to fish” entry using our style and emailing it to dave@activeirishbreaks.com with a nice bright image of the fishery. At Active Irish Angling we want to help as much as possible and provide these information guides as an aid, whether or not you are travelling on holiday with us.
