State Fisheries

Inland Fisheries Ireland owns a wide variety of fisheries in locations all across Ireland. These range from picturesque small lakes to long river stretches and everything in between. State fisheries are made available for licence to all angling clubs every year.

The ethos of State fisheries is to make angling accessible to as many as possible. For that reason, part of the licence agreement, stipulates that tickets must be made readily available by the club to visiting anglers. These are usually available in local tackle shops or accommodation or directly though a club committee member. Contact details and locations for buying tickets are often advertised on a sign post erected by the club on the fishery itself.

If you have any difficulty in finding tickets to a State fishery or indeed any queries relating to State fisheries please contact Inland Fisheries Ireland at 01- 8842675 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. for further information.
