The surrounding area has some of the best salmon and trout waters in Ireland and is an ideal base for fishing enthusiasts. With miles of rivers and a choice of lakes, you’re spoilt for choice.
The river Laune is very famous for the high numbers of sea trout, Brown Trout and salmon. The fishing is good during the summer and a lot of the larger fish are caught on the fly in the month of September. Night fishing is particularly good for trout and is more productive than fishing by day.
Lough Leane, also known as the lower lake in Killarney is the largest body of fresh water in the region and it drains into the river Laune. It has a large stock of Salmon, Sea Trout, Brown Trout, Perch and Eels, Tench, Char and fresh water herring.
