National Licences & local permits

Angling in Ireland is regulated by Inland Fisheries Ireland (IFI), a State body established in July 2010. Anglers are legally required to be in possession of a licence when fishing for salmon or sea trout. Licences can be purchased from a number of sources, including fishing tackle shops, IFI offices and some fisheries. Alternatively you can purchase a licence on-line here. A licence does not confer the right to fish; a fishing permit is also required and must be separately obtained from us. Please click on the Rates tab, above, to view our daily and weekly rates for a permit to fish the Gairha beat.
