Fishing

Doolin is better known for its music than for fishing or angling, but if you just think for a second - doesn't "The Fishing Village of Doolin" somewhat suggest that you may want to bring your fishing rod with you to Doolin?
 
Doolin Cottages are the ideal base for fishing enthusiasts, whether experts or novices. Doolin has fishing to suite all needs from larges lakes for wild Brown Trout, fast rivers for runs of Salmon or to the sea for Shore Fishing or Deep Sea Angling from boats.

Freshwater / River Fishing: The Allie River runs through the village Doolin and in only 200 yards from Doolin Cottages. It is a relatively small river but has some fine wild brown trout up to 2 lbs. Fishing is free on the river. The trout are caught on practically everything: flies, spinner and bait (worms).
 
Lake Fishing: Although shore angling is the most popular in Doolin, considering that you have the entire coastline at your disposal, there are also numerous lakes also in the locality: Lough Lake, Likeen Lake and Lough Inciquinn have stocks of brown and rainbow Trout; there is a small fee which is payable before hand. Coarse fishing (Pike and Rudd) is also popular on some of these lake.
 
Sea Angling: In terms of shore angling, the Doolin coastline offers a variety of places for the angling enthusiast. All the way up to Black Head and down at Liscannor and Lahinch you can find your own private spot if you are prepared to walk a little and jump across a few rocks. There are more easily accessible spots within a few hundred feet of parking your car, if you prefer the company of fellow anglers. Deep sea angling can be arranged with local charters on a daily basis. Shore fishing for Mackrell, Pollack and Dog fish is common along the coast.
