Fishing the River Moy | Activity Break in Ballina, Mayo

Ballina in County Mayo on the West Coast of Ireland usually has an influx of anglers this time of the year. It’s one of the best places in Ireland for Salmon fishing and offers a wide variety of quality angling to suit all tastes and budgets.

Ballina | Salmon Angling Capital

Built on the banks of the River Moy, Ballina is often called the “Salmon Angling Capital” of Ireland and each summer many anglers make the annual pilgrimage to the River Moy to experience the impressive numbers of Salmon and Grisle (A grilse is an Atlantic Salmon which has spent only one winter at sea before returning to the river) that enter the river on virtually every tide.

During the summer the “Ham” bridge which divides the ‘Ridge’ and ‘Cathedral’ pools is lined with tourists watching the grisle show, jump and struggle as the anglers battle with them. It is not unusual for several fish to leap in the air at any one time. A truly amazing sight to see.

Fishing in Ireland states that "The average annual Salmon rod catch on the Moy over the last ten years is a staggering 7,362 fish. The famous Ridge Pool alone has produced up to 2,660 Salmon to rod and line in a single season".

There is so much to see and do in this area, and it is regularly used as a base for visitors who may wish to explore further a field. It is not uncommon for visitors to meet up with celebrities from around the world who regularly visit Ballina and also have homes here or in the area.

The majority of our B&Bs in Ballina and County Mayo cater especially for Anglers. Anglers Welcome B&Bs offer a warm Irish welcome and home cooked Irish breakfast, but in addition they provide specialist services for Anglers that cannot be found in other types of accommodation in Ireland. The Anglers Welcome B&B is the best way to experience an Angling holiday in Ireland.
