Bordered by the Atlantic and Lough Corrib, the west of Ireland is strewn with some of the best salmon and trout fisheries in the world. Different species of fish can be found around this area 12 months a year and Connemara Wild Escapes can arrange a tour at any time. They have an excellent range of experienced guides, gillies and boatmen who have a wealth of local knowledge.
The Atlantic salmon are Connemara’s most famous fish. The white trout have been in decline since the advent of salmon farming in the late 1980’s and all fishing for white trout is on a catch and release basis. The Galway Fishery at the Salmon Weir in the city as well as Erriff, Delphi, Ballynahinch, Costelloe, Screebe, Gowla and Inver systems are especially famous for their fishing. The season mainly runs from the 11th February until the 30th September every year and a State salmon and white trout licence is required by all.
Connemara offers a huge availability of all types and grades of accommodation, safaris for single weekenders or family summer holidays, as well as magnificent food, including what is internationally recognised as some of the best local produce in the world. While in the area visitors can sample Connemara’s famous award winning whiskey or enjoy a pint of Guinness in any of the many local pubs in the area.
