In Ireland you do not need a licence to fish for trout, coarse species or in the sea. However, if you intend to fish for salmon or seatrout you must have a State Salmon and Sea Trout Fishing Licence.
No license required for brown trout fishing except for the Upper Shannon region where a local co-operative share certificate is required. Elsewhere, anglers are encouraged to purchase a voluntary share certificate in order to contribute towards fishery development in the region.
(Anmerkung der Redaktion: Siehe unten und fragen Sie vor dem Auslaufen immer noch den Bootsvermieter)
State Salmon and Sea Trout Licences are available as a National licence or a District Licence. A National Licence covers all Fishery Board Districts while a District Licence covers only the Fishery District in which the licence is purchased. A list of fishing tackle shops where licences may be bought is available on this site. Alternatively you can buy a licence online. It should be noted that a licence does not confer the right to fish for salmon or sea trout and that permission or permits are required to fish most waters.
Anglers in the Shannon Region must have a Shannon Board Permit (ticket charge) to fish for trout, pike or coarse fish in the Midland Fisheries Group of controlled waters. This area comprises the following river catchments; RIVER SUCK, RIVER INNY, RIVER BROSNA, LITTLE BROSNA RIVER and CAMLIN RIVER. This permit can be bought online. This permit is not required to fish the main River Shannon or other fisheries whose fishing rights are NOT under the control of the Shannon Board.
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, Regional Fisheries Boards and some fisheries.
On purchasing a licence anglers receive a copy of the Salmon Angling Regulations which provides information on bag limits, mandatory catch and release fisheries, open and closed fisheries, gill tags and how to return your completed logbook and tags. Licences can be purchased for periods from 1 day to 1 year.
A licence does not confer the right to fish; a fishing permit is usually required and must be obtained separately. A fishing permit generally costs from €20 to €50 per day. Some of the more exclusive fisheries can be more expensive.

Das sogenannte "Share Certificate" für Coarse Fish ist am Main River Shannon nicht mehr notwendig. Aber an den tributaries des River Shannon wird weiterhin ein Permit, siehe unten, benötigt. Bestätigt von C J Lawn Lt Cdr Inspector of Navigation. 5/2010 .~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
