Shannon Sports - The Right Angle

The Right Angle

If the thought of fishing for hard-fighting wild salmon, trout, pike, bream, tench, roach, rudd, perch and dace in beautifully scenic surroundings appeals to you, then a great adventure awaits. The Shannon Region, at the heart of the beautiful West of Ireland, delivers the full spectrum of angling challenges.

You’ll find all the ingredients for a great fishing holiday are available throughout the Shannon Region in abundance. The Atlantic coast and the sheltered waters of the Shannon Estuary offer excellent fishing from the shore and at sea. The River Shannon, which flows through the region’s heartland; its great lake Lough Derg; its many tributaries, and the many lakes dotted throughout the region present lots of exciting angling options.
