Ireland's Lakelands and inland Waterways
If your idea of a perfect holiday is the peace and quiet of an angling break, we’ve got some fantastic places for you to visit. First up, you will be treated to great fishing. But you’ll also find delicious food, lively pubs and welcoming accommodation for when the bait and rods are put away.
The extensive Lakelands & Inland Waterways region gives endless options. The region, based on the Erne System, the Shannon-Erne Waterway and the majestic Shannon Navigation, stretches from Belleek at the far west of County Fermanagh all the way to the estuary at Limerick. A haven of calm, this region is ideal for all kinds of water sports, cruising but especially angling. The lakes and rivers of the Lakelands region provide for some of the finest fishing in the world. Beautiful, welcoming waterside towns are packed with plenty of activities, quality accommodation, vibrant music sessions, and great food, places where a wealth of historical and traditional culture waits to be explored.
'Lakelands & Inland Waterways is pleased to continue to support this prestigious competition , we are delighted with the level of interest generated nationally and internationally. Through its continued involvement, the partners in the Lakelands and Inland Waterways initiative are delighted to see Ireland reinstated as the premier destination for fishing, and the Lakelands and Inland Waterways region of Ireland at the top of everyone's wish list of places to visit!
