Fishing Guides Connemara

Ballynahinch has long been famous for its fishing guides and the tradition has continued in the same families from generation to generation. Photographs in the hotel of fishing guides from the 1800’s confirm this long-standing practice. Fishing guides are available on request from the fishery manager and can make your fishing trip at Ballynahinch a more exciting and fulfilling one. They are experienced fly fishermen to teach the inexperienced angler and extremely knowledgeable of the river to direct the more practised angler to little known salmon lies where the big fish are. Whether you are a novice fisherman who would like to try you hand at fly-fishing or a hardened salmon angler, a day spent with a Ballynahinch fishing guide is memorable and highly recommended.

For those who have never tried their hand at fly fishing, the Castle conducts on site tutorials for one or two people for a half or full day.  One of our certified guides will teach you all the basics of fly fishing from casting techniques to fly selection.  It is a perfect way to introduce yourself to this magical art.  Prices start from €140.
