Coarse fishing spots in and around Dublin

Postby dawaxwaw » Thu Jul 12, 2018 6:12 pm

Hi everyone,

This is my first post here so let me introduce myself. I am a Croatian guy and I will be living in Dublin starting from August. I am also a passionate angler and I am very excited about Ireland because, from what I know, it can offer a lot when it comes to fishing.

I love different fishing techniques, in particular fly fishing, but since I started to have back problems I had to slowly resign from it and now I enjoy lure fishing for predators from time to time, but mostly feeder and float coarse fishing trying to catch carp, tench, roach and similar types of fish. I also love surfcasting.

Now, since I will not have a car for the first couple of months in Dublin, I was looking for a fishing venue that could offer something like that in or around Dublin and that would be reachable by public transport, but didn't have luck finding it.

I would really appreciate if anyone of you guys could help me find such a place.

I would also like to know where can I find all Irish angling regulations at one place? I want to read it carefully, but didn't manage to find something like that online.

Thank you very much!

Hello and welcome to the site!The website fishinginireland.info is a good guide of where to start for all types of fishing. It also has permit and bye law info. Plenty of places to saltwater fish in and around dublin too which are accesible by public transport. Once you have three posts on this site try a search of the archived reports, it has loads of information. One spot I love for trout is the River Dodder flowing through south Dublin. Only 10 euro for the season permit. It's a small river so big casts aren't needed so wouldn't be too hard on a bad back! Tight lines!
It ain't easy but it sure is simple!

Hello, thanks a lot for your reply.

I checked the website that you recommended and it is a very useful source of information! Thanks for that as well.

River Dodder seems very nice (I just googled some photos), my back is pretty screwed but I see it's not very demanding when it comes to casting so I will definitely give it a try. If I get some results there I will also get back to fly tying which is great :) But this is not the topic for this sub-forum so I don't want to get into it :)

Anyway, I will read on at fishinginireland.info and if I have some questions I will ask!

Thanks and tight lines!

p.s.
For moderators: I got a pm but it seems there is no reply button so I can't reply. I don't know if this is a restriction for new members or a bug? Just to let you know...thanks

Hi dawaxwaw, any idea where in Dublin you'll be staying and I might be able to help you out, there's plenty of coarse fishing on the canals and on a few lakes close to dublin, depends on what you're looking to catch

Hi there, thank you for your reply. I will be staying in Clontarf area. Actually, I'm already there. If you have any useful information I'd be really thankful! Cheers!

I've also heard there is a commercial trout fishery somewhere near Malahide-u, but couldn't locate it on Google maps, that could also be interesting for me, so if you know anything about it, let me know. Thanks!
