Anglers World Holidays offer carefully chosen top game fishing locations in Ireland. Ireland has excellent clean, clear rivers and lakes particularly in the Central and Northwest regions. Lough Sheelin is one of Ireland's top wild brown trout loughs fishing well from late May to September.
The Rivers Mourne, Strule and Derg in the Northwest provides excellent salmon fishing. The Strule is a spring/early summer spate river. The Mourne fishes best from June to early October.
Getting to Ireland - The car ferries sail several times a day from the ports of Pembroke, Fishguard, Holyhead, Liverpool (Birkenhead) and the southern ports of Scotland - they remain the most popular because you can simply load the car with everything and head off. Flying is certainly for the birds when it comes to fishing. The huge penalties imposed by the so called 'low cost' airlines for extra luggage are unbelievably high and make it impossible to travel with luggage and coarse or sea angling kit.
Stena Line have the widest choice of routes, sailing from Holyhead, Fishguard, and Cairnryan, with a variety of conventional ferries. Irish Ferries concentrate on sailings from Holyhead and Pembroke with conventional car ferries and a fast craft (Swift) from Holyhead to Dublin.
Stena Line now operates between Liverpool (Birkenhead) and Belfast with huge vessels that carry a mix of freight and car passengers. En-suite cabins are included in the cost on night crossings. There is also a day-time ferry. Meals can be purchased on board.
In 2018 & 2019 the Irish Ferries Swift fast ferry was cancelled on many occasions. We would highly recommend that you book the conventional ferry which is very rarely cancelled. It takes extreme weather conditions before the conventional ferries are cancelled. The sailing time difference is only 75 minutes!
P&O Ferries sail twice daily from Liverpool to Dublin.
Please note ferry companies are carrying out increased security checks and we require all passengers full names and dates of birth in order to make a ferry booking. Vehicle details are also required (make, model, registration number, height and length of vehicle).
