paper texture
Clonanav Fly Fishing & Guesthouse was founded by the Ryan Family in the mid-1990s as a guesthouse that also provided access to great fly fishing on the nearby Suir, Nire, and Tar Rivers. Since then, the business has evolved with the eldest son Andrew Ryan setting up his own pro-level fly shop, fly fishing school, outfitting business, and all-inclusive trip packages. Clonanav Fly Fishing is now recognized as the premier destination for stream fishing in Ireland, offering unparalleled levels of service and some of the country’s most accomplished and seasoned guides. These all-inclusive packages with Clonanav and Yellow Dog can include lodging, ground transportation, private driver, area logistics, and some of the best-guided fishing available in Ireland. Andrew and his team offer some of the best river brown trout and salmon fishing in the country, with accommodation options in either a 4-star hotel in Clonmel or a quaint riverside B&B.

Lodging Locations and Options
For all Clonanav Fly Fishing multi-day packages, anglers can choose from two different accommodation options: a 4-star hotel in the town of Clonmel, or a quaint riverside B&B in the heart of Irish farm country.

Hotel Minella
Hotel Minella Clonmel is nestled between the Comeragh Mountains and the River Suir in Clonmel, Tipperary. Originally designed by the nationally acclaimed architect, John Skipton Mulvany, in the 1860s to be a private estate, Minella was purchased by the Nallen family in the early 1960s and converted to a country house hotel in 1963. Over the past 50 years, the hotel has undergone extensive redevelopment and constant refurbishment, and the Minella is now considered one of the nicest hotels in the region, with 90 individually designed and decorated rooms. The Minella name is also recognized in the world of horse racing, and the current owners are actively involved in the training and breeding of race horses. The hotel’s oak-paneled restaurant has garden views and is renowned for excellent food. Using the freshest local and seasonal ingredients, they aim to promote the best of Irish cuisine while working with local Tipperary food producers. The hotel’s leisure facilities feature a 66-foot Swimming pool, outdoor hot tub, gym, sauna, steam room, and outdoor tennis courts.

Glasha House Bed and Breakfast
Glasha is a classic farmhouse bed-and-breakfast located in an idyllic rural setting in the North Waterford and South Tipperary region. It is the ideal base for fishing the area with Clonanav Fly Fishing, as it is less than ten minutes from the shop and only a three-minute walk to one of the most legitimate, old school (think the 1600s!) Irish pubs that can be found anywhere. No highways or busy traffic and no bustling city noise. The operator of Glasha is Olive O’Gorman – an exceptionally welcoming and hands-on host who even makes a delicious home-cooked dinner for guests in the almost-forgotten B&B tradition. All of the bedrooms at Glasha are spacious and stylishly decorated, with modern ensuite facilities (showers or showers over a bath), TV, internet access, and more. Winner of the “Georgina Campbell B&B of the Year” in 2020, Glasha is a lovely place to stay.

Food and Beverages
There are several different options for dining and meals, depending on where you are staying. On-water lunches while fishing are packed and provided by Clonanav Fly Fishing, and breakfast are usually available at the hotel or the B&B. Dinners can also be at the hotel or B&B, or you can visit any number of restaurants or pubs in Clonmel or the surrounding area. Be sure to visit J. Lonergan’s Pub on the banks of the Nire – home to some of the best Guinness in Ireland!

Typical Length of Stay
All packages are completely customized, and trips of any length can be arranged. 

Non-Angling Activities and Options
The entire country of Ireland provides great opportunities for non-anglers, couples, and families to enjoy themselves during their stay. In the immediate County Waterford area of southern Ireland, non-angling activities include hiking, cycling, exploring small Irish villages, golf, live music, museums, kayaking, canoeing, horseback riding, and much, much more. The County Waterford area has many historic sites, including numerous castles, churches, ring forts, abbeys, and monasteries. For history lovers, there are castles at Lismore, Kilkenny, Cashel, and Cahir. The famous Swiss Cottage in Cahir and the Round Tower in Ardmore are also well worth a visit. Clonmel is the largest inland town in Munster. The town is a garrison town, complete with the historical Main Guard and the West Gate, which is still in existence. Other area attractions include the House of Waterford Crystal factory tour and Kilkenny Castle.

Most of the hotels and inns in Ireland offer consistent Wi-Fi access, and cell service is very good throughout most areas of the country.

Credit Cards
Most businesses, hotels, and restaurants accept Visa and Mastercard. Fewer accept American Express. Note that many local and rural pubs are cash only.
