Angling in Ireland

The River Suir rises in the Devil’s Bit Mountains and flows through the limestone country of South Tipperary and North Waterford. Its physical characteristics provide an ideal habitat for salmon and trout. Grilse runs begin in late June through to the end of September, when the season ends. The river Suir has all the characteristics of a chalk stream and therefore produces trout in abundance ranging in size from 400g to 1kg. The large numbers present prosper because of the ideal nature of the habitat, the absence of any serious predators and the lack of competition for food.

The Suir is renowned as a dry-fly fishery. Access to the river is excellent. Visitors may purchase permits from any of the associations and most of the private fisheries on the river. The Salmon and Trout season opens on the 17th March and closes on the 30th September. For more information please contact John Freeman Sport & Trophy Centre, Thurles, 7 Bohernanave Thurles Co.
