Abbey Court is the ideal base for the fishing enthusiast. Our local rivers (the Roughty and the Blackwater) are spate rivers and local experienced fisherman agree that the best fishing is on the full of spate.
The most prevalent fish is the wild Atlantic salmon (Salmon Salar), however brown trout also abound. The rivers also produce hundreds of fish a year.
Fishing in Ireland is an activity for all seasons. The run of salmon commences quietly in March and April, Grilse enter the river in late May to September.
Licenses and all necessary equipment can be obtained from local expert John O'Hare, Main Street, Kenmare.
Fishing trips and boat hire are also available from Mc McCarthy's who specialises in sea-angling.
