The Daiwa Irish Pairs is a fantastyic sea angling festival that has been running for many years. Based in Dingle, it is held in September and attracts anglers from far and wide, including many from the UK.

This year the festival runs from Saturday 16th to Friday 22nd of September. The festival consists of several pegged matches on the beaches of the Dingle peninsula, and a specimen hunt is also held throughout the week, with prizes for the best fish of each eligible species. The main prizes are also worth chasing, with £1,500 on offer to the winning pair, and many more prizes down the placings.

Check out the poster below for details and how to enter. We’ve been to Dingle during the festival before, and the craic was mighty! We just might enter ourselves!
