    The Hidden Heartland’s has an open secret – the quality and range of angling experiences here has to be seen to be believed.

    Experience Ireland’s Hidden Heartlands, a beautifully unspoiled part of Ireland where life moves at its own pace. Listen to the ebb and flow of trickling waters, fish your way down rivers and streams or explore magical loughs where tall tales were meant to be made.

    Meander across expansive boglands, majestic mountains and open valleys. Visit the riverside towns and villages dotted throughout this enchanting region. Make sure to stop and soak up the peaceful atmosphere, there’s nowhere quite like it.

    What’s the Catch?

    For the trout angler there are miles of wandering rivers and loughs where fly fishing can produce exciting sport.

    Coarse anglers can set up on the banks of still waters like the huge expanse of water that is Lough Ree to smaller ponds, all filled with bream, rudd, tench, roach and hybrids. And lets’s not forget the the river fishing and the canals!

    Pike anglers can target big fish over shoals of coarse fish all through the year. The might river Shannon and its tributaries produce pike to over 30lb year in year out
