Dingle Peninsula Fishing & Angling

Dingle Peninsula Fishing & Angling

Fishing & Sea Angling Around the Dingle Peninsula

Shore and Rock angling in the Dingle Peninsula is very popular and is some of the best in Ireland. Shore and Rock angling may be done, throughout the year, for a large variety of species. Inch beach, a four-mile stretch of silver strand at the end of Dingle bay, is a great shore angling spot. It is located on the route from Killarney to Dingle, and is six miles from Annascaul village. Good Rock angling locations are at Dun an Óir, near Ballyferriter, and Bínn Bán, at the mouth of Dingle Harbour.

At Brandon, bass and flatfish can be caught on the north-facing beach. Travelling west Smerwick harbour has three beaches where bass and flatfish can be got by surf fishing while from the rocks at the centre of the bay spinning for bass is possible. Ferriter's cove offers possibilities for surf fishing as does Ventry harbour. From Dingle pier, mullet and flounders, can be got; arrangements can be made for deep sea and inshore fishing. Along the south shore, Beenbane and Reenbeg in the mouth of the harbour are good spots for spinning for bass while further east Trabeg, Anascaul and Inch can provide spinning for bass and flounders and surf fishing for flatfish and occasional tope.

What Dingle Fishing has to say - " Dingle harbour is somewhere I have fished a lot over the years, many years in fact, and it has rarely let me down. The fish I have had from the harbour are Ray to 12lbs(thornbacks), doggies, bull huss (one only), conger to over 30lbs, bass, mackerel, pollock to over 9lbs, wrasse(ballans) to over 4lbs, flounder and mullet.

For such a small area it has great variety of fishing with beach, marina, creek and rock fishing all available. You can bottom fish, lure fish, float fish or fly fish and you will catch fish on each of these methods, and you can even dig rag and lug here. "
