For the shore angler, the perfect spot is never hard to find. Miles of famous storm beaches with crashing surfs for the sportsman after bass and painted rays, quiet beaches and estuaries offering skate, flounder and plaice; and piers and deepwater rock marks containing a variety of species including pollock, wrasse and conger eels. The Dingle Peninsula has it all, enough marks and fish to suit everyone's tastes and at any time of the year.

Inland Fisheries Ireland / Iascach Intíre Éireann have produced a "Fishing in Ireland" website, which includes a guide to the Dingle Peninsula detailing shore and sea angling locations and sources of bait.
