Water based activities
Cahir House Hotel is uniquely situated in one of Ireland’s most prestigious fly fishing locations. Close to many fishing hotspots from the Suir to the Nore and Blackwater rivers.
We are happy to organise fly-fishing days and weekend packages with ghillies, licenses, permits etc.
The river Suir rises in the Devil’s Bit Mountain travels south into Cahir. It’s one of Europe’s most popular trout and salmon rivers and holds a heavy stock of fish. The best of the salmon stretch is nearby in Ardfinnan. The Suir River produced Ireland’s record rod-caught salmon. It weighed 57lbs!

The Suir Blueway
The Suir Blueway is open for visitors on the River Suir in Co Tipperary and it features a fantastic cycling route taking in Carrick-on-Suir; the home town of Sean Kelly and Sam Bennett.
Suir Blueway Tipperary runs some 53km from Cahir to Carrick on Suir.
It is comprised of walking and cycling trails and, of course, the River Suir water sports amenity.
Indeed, the river-based element is what makes it a blueway rather than a greenway. But if you’re a cyclist, don’t let that put you off as there is a continuous 21km towpath cycling route that stretches from Carrick-on-Suir to Clonmel.
In many ways the area is the spiritual home of the Irish road cycling scene, but it’s also a beautiful spot for a bike ride.
Bike Hire Available; €20 Adult / €10 Children or Family of 4 €50
