Fishing on the River Maigue

Experience an angler’s paradise.

The picturesque River Maigue flowing through the estate is a centrepiece of Adare Manor’s gorgeous setting. It is also home to healthy populations of trout and even salmon in season, and the stretch of river running through the grounds is reserved for the exclusive use of our guests. Whether you have never cast a line or are an experienced angler, there is adventure to be had by the waterside. The noble art of fly fishing has been mastered by our expert ghillie, who would be happy to share his expertise. For those looking for a more relaxed affair, why not step aboard our Galway-made boat, crafted over three years by hand with larch and oak. Row out on our private lake, spending an afternoon in the company of our ghillie in search of a fish or two!

We have the finest tackle and equipment always on hand and available for Adare Manor guests. Whether you’d like to make it a family outing, or enjoy the peace and contemplation of a lone fisherman, this is a relaxing way to spend a few hours in the glorious outdoors. If your luck is in and the fish are biting, your catch can be transformed into an unforgettable meal: we will take it back to the manor house for you and have our distinguished culinary team specially prepare it for your enjoyment in our fine-dining restaurant, The Oak Room.
