Why not try fishing from the only licensed saltwater fly fishing boat in Ireland with Eire Bass in the second largest natural harbour in the world, in Cobh, County Cork?

Your guide with Eire Bass, Richie Ryan, formerly a Commander in the Irish Navy, has built up a huge knowledge of bass fishing, in particular, over the last 30 years. He has purchased a new boat for this venture and is insured to carry up to 3 anglers. Bookings for small numbers is ideal therefore.

Eire Bass supplies all the equipment including fly rods, fly’s lines, etc. Bass and sea trout are the main target species but he never underestimates the fun of catching the humble pollack on a fly. Also available on fly are mullet, mackerel, bream and garfish.

Young and old are welcome, although a basic knowledge of fly fishing would be helpful. If you have no knowledge of fly fishing, other methods including the owner’s own bass techniques on a spinning rod are available.

Tips from locals

Stay a while and enjoy the great history of this unique harbour town, and enjoy dinner in some of Cobh's well known restaurants.
