How Much Will It Cost To Go Salmon Fishing?
2017 Salmon Licences are Available
This is a question that I am asked a lot. How much is it to fish per day? Where will I stay? What do I need to bring with me? Where is the nearest airport.
The cost of fishing per day varies from month to month. Our fishing season opens on 1st February and closes on 30th September. In February the fishing costs €15 per day, and in August and September it costs €80 per day. You will also require to purchase a State Salmon Fishing Licence which you can purchase from us when you arrive. The prices are below depending on which type you wish to buy.
The type of accommodation that you book depends on your own personal requirements and preferences. Some people prefer the flexibility of self catering, others prefer a comfortable B&B, or maybe a hotel or country house.
We can help you with booking the correct accommodation to suit you and your groups requirements.
The cost of self catering cottages range from €400-€600 per week.
The cost of a B&B is between €35-€55
The cost of a hotel or country house is between €60-€130 per night.
Therefore as an example if we took two people coming fishing in May for 6 days fishing and staying in a B&B for 7 nights, including the salmon fishing licence it would cost a total of €1170. The breakdown is €50 per person fishing per day, €40 per person for a state salmon fishing licence for the week, and €35 per person sharing for a B&B.
We also welcome people who wish to fish for a day or come on a short break.
The nearest airport is Cork which is 1 hour from Lismore and Dublin is 2.5 hours from Lismore.
If you wish to borrow our equipment then you are welcome to do so at no extra cost and we can also provide tuition/guiding and packed lunches for the river bank if required. Here is a link to our price list for fishing and guiding/tuition. http://blackwatersalmonfishery.com/price-list/
