    A fisherman's paradise by the sea

    To stand at what feels like the edge of the world, rod in hand, is a breathtaking experience. The best part? Rock, surf, beach, pier and estuary fishing – most commonly known simply as shore fishing – are completely free in Ireland. It’s perfect for those who enjoy the quiet solace of angling and want to experience Ireland unplugged. Try the rocky shores of the Southern Peninsulas for pollack and wrasse or storm beaches such as Benone Strand, home to an abundance of flounder.

    For sea fishing, the best way to do things is in a charter vessel from a specialist centre. Off much of Ireland’s coast, you’ll find sunken wrecks that are home to dozens of species, from cod to conger. The best places to try sea fishing? Kilmore Quay in County Wexford, Kinsale Harbour in County Cork, or Ballycastle in County Antrim.

    Alone in the world and catching the perfect fish? Ireland could be heaven with rod in hand.
