This gin clear stream runs from peat bogland in the Comeragh Mountains, County Tipperary. It has exceptional stocks of trout averaging 0.25 to 0.75 pounds (25 to 30 cm).

The River Nire flows from the Comeragh Mountains through the Nire Valley until it connects with the River Suir. It is a narrow river with a ripple and pool formation.

The river has a good stock of fish from 20 to 30 cm as well as some much larger fish. The fishing is mainly on dry fly and nymph with some streamer fishing during high water.

The river bed is mainly slippery stones and rocks, so felt sole waders are recommended here. Fly hatches include caddis, Stonefly, olives, baetis, spurwings, midges etc.
