A short guide to Ireland's Eastern Region

The Eastern Region of Ireland provides the visiting angler with a wide range of top quality game, pike, coarse and sea fishing venues. Its strategic location close to major airports and ferry terminals means that quality angling is only a one-hour drive away. This enables visiting anglers to maximise their holiday and angling time.

Salmon, sea-trout and brown trout fishing are available on a choice of rivers throughout the region. These include many excellent rivers within easy reach of Dublin.

There are also many excellent coarse fishing venues in the eastern region and these present great opportunities to the coarse angler. The Lakeland districts of Cavan, Monaghan, Meath and Westmeath boast hundreds of lakes in beautiful rural surroundings. There are no shortage of specimen fish in these many and varied waters.

The extensive coastline from Carlingford Lough, with its terrific Tope fishing; to Wexford with its fighting Bass, Smooth Hound, and winter Flounder offer fantastic opportunities for all categories of sea angler.

Kilmore Quay in South Wexford is home to an extensive charter fleet who fish the rich fishing grounds off the Saltee Islands for Pollack, Ling, Codling, Wrasse, Conger, Bass, and Tope. Kilmore is also home to the annual small boats festival held every year in September.

Fishing is one of the best ways to relax and get rid of stress. You can get to the location in an hour or so and start enjoying your weekend. You can use it to spend time with your family or or friends. The area has great weather and will give you the chance to try you luck and go back home stress free and happy. If you had gone out fishing and smoked some weed to help you relax, a surprise drug test at work can be even more stressful. Do not worry as there is a lot of information on how to pass a urine drug test online, and you can find a solution that suits you.
