Cork is very fortunate to have many safe anchorages and being in close proximity to excellent fishing territories. Quite a few companies specialise in fishing trips for groups or individuals.
Baltimore (West Cork)
Sea angling in Ireland is at its varied best where the rugged coastline of the south west meets the warm plankton-rich waters of the Gulf Stream. Wreck fishing, shark fishing and common skate fishing are three of the angling highlights.
Castletownbere (West Cork)
The Beara Peninsula on Ireland’s south west coast offers both stunning scenery with a wealth of history and lots of things to see including some great shore and deep sea angling.
Cobh (next to Cork City)
Should your interest in fishing be for Sharks, Conger, Rays, their all available just a short distance from Cork city centre (and not just in the local fish mongers!). Shark fishing is particularly popular in the summer off the Cork Coastline with some large specimens being caught locally.
Youghal (East Cork)
The extensive coastline of Cork has been described as the capital of sea fishing in Ireland. Starting from Youghal harbour, angling trips can consist of either wreck fishing, reef fishing, drift fishing, rough ground and shark fishing. The seas off Youghal are home to a large variety of fish species. www.charterangling.ie
