Adare, Ireland Fly Fishing Guides

PageLines- adare_manor_limerick_co_munster_ireland_photo_adare_manor_resort.jpgLocated in southwest Ireland close to the Ring of Kerry and a 15-minute drive from Limerick is the historic town of Adare. Regarded as being Ireland’s prettiest and most picturesque village.  Surrounded by medieval castles, a 14th century Franciscan Friary, Adare Manor Hotel & Golf Resort, streets lined with thatched cottages and cold running trout streams makes Adare an ideal location to enjoy an Irish vacation.

The Irish hospitality and personalities are hard to match anywhere.  But best of all, there are some incredible Brown Trout streams and rivers that meander through the lush green rolling Irish countryside near Adare.

The fly fishing and the hatches don’t get going until the sun hits the water. Depending on the weather the trout tend to sleep in. Maybe it’s because of the warming influence of the sun or maybe they were up late enjoying a couple of pints of Guinness. You will fish the River Maigue and Deel as well as some secret streams on private land for brown trout.  Our guide is a true Irish character. He has been fly fishing the surrounding area for over 40 years and guiding for almost 20 years. The trout season is open from April 1 through the end of September.

Don't want to bring all of your own equipment. rods/reels, waders, boots, rain-gear and flies are available at no additional cost.


CottageThere is a range of accommodations in Adare from the ultra beautiful Adare Manor Golf Resort, outstanding cottage rentals just outside of town and you can even rent your own Irish castle right on the river Maigue. I highly recommend staying at the cottages. Located on a farm just 5 minutes from the town of Adare. There is a historic thatched cottage and a renovated stone barn. Both can be rented by the day or by the week.

Adare is the ideal location for not only fishing but also easy access to some of the most storied golf courses in the world. Ballybunion, Waterville, Lahinch and Tralee golf courses are all within an easy drive from Adare. And of course the Adare Manor Golf Resort is a world-class venue hosting a European Tour event each year.
