One restriction: it is forbidden to fish with live bait.
The pike fishing possibilities are endless: you can, without any problem, catch exceptional fish from the river bank. However, to maximize your chances of catching pike and have a comfortable experience, we provide you with the very best quality Irish Sheelin boats or Keeper brand of float-tubes, to use according to your desires and lakes you have chosen.
For trout fishing, Killeshandra is the most visited destination for fishing in Ireland! It is a paradise for fly-fishing with magnificent specimens relatively easy to catch with a dry fly. Guests can also enjoy nymph fishing. Fishermen can learn techniques from our guide. The numbers/density of trout in the rivers is really impressive with the average size of your catch, in principle, between 18 and 45 cm. Clubs who manage these rivers give permits for the year or the day, but you don't have to worry about that, your fishing guide will help you get the license upon arrival! On the season, fishing for trout in Ireland starts 1St March and ends September 30.
Killeshandra is known for its lakes and rivers and is particularly proud of its landscape! also, which is now identified as part of a UNESCO Global Geopark!.
