Going on a Fishing Trip for Your Stag Weekend
Different stags will celebrate their last night of freedom in different ways. Stags that wish to go fishing for their stag weekend will find so many locations in Ireland that will be perfect for that stag do activity. After all, Ireland is an island. What’s more, there are so many rivers and lakes that flow throughout different counties.
So, for anglers, these are some of the best stag do locations in Ireland. Of course, there will be differences in terms of the location as some are ideal for deep sea fishing and others are perfect for freshwater fishing. It all depends on what sort of trip the stags want.
Carrick on Shannon
Carrick on Shannon is tagged as the Hen Party Capital of Ireland. This small town got that name not because of its lakes, but for the craic to be had in its nightlife scene. Knowing that, this can be the perfect place for stags to spend their last moments of freedom.
During the day, stags can enjoy fishing in some of this town’s lakes. For those that do not know, forty one lakes can be found within a ten kilometer radius from the town proper. Those lakes are the reasons why this relatively small town is the location of various national and international fishing tournaments. This town in County Leitrim really is the ultimate location for freshwater fishing in Ireland.
Stags that have seen the movie Saving Private Ryan would have gotten a glimpse of Wexford’s coast as Curracloe Beach was the shooting location of the movie’s opening scene. Known for miles of coastline, the County town of County Wexford is well-known for its beaches.
In the past, this town used to be a major seaport in its region. Now, the town mainly thrives because of its manufacturing industry. Even so, due to its geographic location, it continues to be one of the best places in Ireland to enjoy deep sea fishing.
While in Wexford, stags can rent boats that come with a captain that can bring them to the best deep sea fishing spots in the area. Equipment can be rented as well, but it does not hurt to bring your own gear.
Other Stag Do Activities
Aside from fishing, there are other stag day activities to enjoy in Carrick on Shannon and Wexford. The fun does not have to end with the biggest catch of the day. There is great craic to be had in both locations and stags can still enjoy their stag night in either town.
As for daytime activities, there are other alternatives too especially for those that will be in town for a stag weekend. Paintballing, clay shooting, quading, go karting, and other popular stag do activities can also be enjoyed in either location.
An added bonus for stags that enjoy waterfowl hunting, Wexford can be the perfect place to enjoy that activity. During hunting season, County Wexford is the migratory stop of thousands of waterfowl. This will include waders, swans, geese, and ducks.
