Athlone offers some of the best coarse fishing anywhere, and the excellent Lough Ree offers a wide choice of fishing bays. This is one of the most popular fishing venues on the River Shannon, with an abundance of fish including pike and trout fishing. You can also expect to find perch, bream, roach, rudd and tench in the inner lakes. Grab our fishing rods and take one of our lake boats and go fishing for the day. Lough Ree is a fisherman’s paradise. For novice fishers why not go fishing with a local Gillie who will show you the hidden Lough Ree. A one hour fishing activity is €90 per person, so why not talk to our team to plan your fishing trip!
