Baltimore sea angling centre

Baltimore is the southernmost angling centre in Ireland and as close as possible to the Gulf Stream, which gives rise to a mild climate and superb sea angling. The sheltered natural harbour opens directly into deep water and there is good angling within a few minutes of passing the Beacon at the harbour's mouth (itself a useful shore angling mark). Offshore, two world wars have left the sea bed littered with wrecks. Inshore, there is shelter from numerous islands so fishing can usually continue even in the event of bad weather.

Though only a village, Baltimore has pubs and restaurants to suit every taste. Several of them are clustered round the village square which overlooks the harbour. Relax here with a drink after the day's fishing and enjoy the spectacular view across sea and islands towards Mizen Head, the 'Land's End' of Ireland.

For any non-fishing members of the party there is golf, sailing, diving, kayaking, horse riding, whale and bird watching, ferry trips (to the enchanting islands of Sherkin, Cape Clear and Heir), uncrowded beaches and miles of unspoilt coastline. The friendly atmosphere and relaxed pace of life makes Baltimore the perfect antidote to the pressures of modern life. The only problem is you may not want to leave!
