Sea Fishing in Ireland with Anglers World Holidays.The 3000 km coastline is varied and spectacular with it’s hundreds of tranquil bays and backwaters, roaring surf beaches and miles of awe inspiring sea cliffs. The diverse nature of the coastline and Ireland’s unique geographical position, on the edge of the European continental shelf, where the inshore waters are warmed by the North Atlantic Drift (an offshoot of the Gulf Stream) means that the native marine life is extremely rich and varied.
The coastal waters of Ireland abound with fish and visiting sports fishermen can expect something in the region of 80 species. Excellent shore and boat fishing is on offer. The numerous quaint ports around the coast are home to top charter boat skippers, all fully licenced and approved.
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 operate 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. P&O Ferries sail twice daily from Liverpool to Dublin.
In 2018 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. Sailing time difference is only 75 minutes!
