Welcome to Irish Fishing Tours

Welcome to Lough Derg , the largest and most southerly of the lakes on Ireland’s majestic River Shannon. Conveniently situated in County Tipperary, in the heart of Ireland, This 13,000 hectare lake attracts anglers seeking to combine some of the best fishing in Ireland with a unique holiday experience. We invite you to join us in this magical location.

At Irish Fishing Tours, we would be delighted to organise your fishing holiday. Our comprehensive packages include a guiding service, tackle hire, food and accommodation. Using our local knowledge, we have carefully selected a range of accommodation to suit all tastes and budgets.

Lough Derg’s shoreline is dotted with scenic harbours and villages. Local pubs ring with the sound of traditional music and restaurants serve the best in local food. In the evenings, share stories – real or imagined – in the pub with friendly locals.

From our base in the beautiful harbour village of Garrykennedy, we will guide you to some of the country’s best pike fishing.  Garykennedy is located in County Tipperary, feted in song in “It’s a long way to Tipperary”. But with a choice of 3 airports all less than 2 hours away, your Irish fishing trip could not be closer.
