Fly Fishing the Emerald Isle
Fishing in Ireland delivers one of the most unique angling experiences in the world: a combination of amazing history, wonderful hospitality, engaging cultural immersion, and – of course – plenty of ideal fishing opportunities. Affectionately known as the Emerald Isle, Ireland is a country famous for breathtaking seascapes, rolling green hills, salmon-filled rivers, and tranquil “loughs” (lakes). Dramatic cliffs tower over rugged and wind-swept coastlines, while ancient ruins scattered throughout the country stand as relics of past grandeur. And, of course, there is no better way to end a day of fishing than a visit to a local pub for the best-tasting Guinness on the planet.
People first settled in Ireland over 9000 years ago, and remnants of its history are prominent throughout the country – from stone-age ruins to crumbling castles to medieval villages dotting the idyllic countryside. Visitors to Ireland appreciate the charm of traditional Irish hospitality, and overall, these trip packages offer one of the very best values found anywhere in the world. If you’re looking for the ideal fishing escape, couple’s trip, family vacation, or even a fishing-golf combo trip, Ireland is the perfect option at a terrific overall price.
Most trips to Ireland begin and end in Dublin, a city as intimate as a village and as friendly as any worldly destination. Framed by mountains, centered on a river, and edged by a beautiful bay, the city’s streets and alleys are filled with historic buildings, beautiful architecture, and traditional “old man” Dublin pubs on just about every corner. Yellow Dog’s Irish trip packages and itineraries are always 100% customized, including everything from stays in historic castles and sporting lodges to city stays with access to fantastic fishing for Atlantic salmon and wild, indigenous brown trout.
