Hi Everyone, 

My boyfriend and I would like to have the chance to fish in Ireland...we are looking for a place where we could rent a fishing rod and fish a little...any good recommendations? 

Thus, as my understanding there's no need for a permit for fishing in Ireland is that right? 

Thank you in advance for your help and cannot wait to visit your beautiful country !! 

Véronique and Michaël!

Hello Véronique and Michaël!
Ireland is one of the most popular sport fishing destinations in Europe with varied coastline and an abundance of rivers and lakes. You will find lots of places to choose from. On fishinginireland.info, you will find a selection of the best fishing location around Ireland. A few popular places are: Lough Corrib, Co. Galway; Waterville, County Kerry; Donegal Bay; Lagan River, County Antrim. :)
The majority of waters in Ireland are owned either privately or are owned by the State. A fishing permit issued by the owner of the waterway gives you the right to fish for varying periods ranging from a day to a season. Also, you must obtain a State Fishing licence, tags and a separate fishing permit in order to fish for salmon and sea trout.Here you will find more information on fishing regulations. :)

I would also recommend you to have a look at this link where you can find a list of tour operators specializing in fishing. Also, our section about fishing will provide more information.
I hope this helps with your plans. :)

Hi Véronique and Michaël,

An angler requires a rod licence and a permit to fish in freshwater lakes, loughs and rivers in Northern Ireland. The licence is for the fishing rod and the game or coarse fish you're allowed to catch. A permit grants you the right to fish in a particular fishery.

For further details on fishing in Northern Ireland please visit: https://www.nidirect.gov.uk/information-and-services/outdoor-recreation-and-sport/angling

A fishing publication is also available to download by following the link below:

We hope you enjoy your visit.

Hi  Véronique and Michaël

There is no need of a license to fish in the sea but all rivers ( fresh water) do. 
There are loads of tackle shops that could supply a basic fishing rod and tackle for around 50 euros.
If you would like to experience some sea fishing visit the stunning north coast and join the one of our fishing trips where- tuition tackle rod hire and bait are all included! http://fishportrush.net/

There are also great sightseeing opportunities here on the Causeway Coast with Glenara Elite Travel's Tours

Very Best Regards  
Frances
