Flowing through Hidden Valley Holiday Park, the Avonmore River rises at the foot of the Wicklow Mountains and flows in a south-easterly direction through a mountainous landscape for approximately 20 miles before joining the Avonbeg River at the ‘Meeting of the Waters’, 1.5 miles upstream of Avoca. Made up of stretches that alternate between deep, slow-flowing glides to areas of fast-flowing riffle and run areas culminating in deep pools, the river holds large stocks of wild brown trout. Fishing is available on site and on forest trails along the riverbank.
Fishing season runs from March 15th to September 30th, although the best fishing periods are spring (March-May) and early autumn (late August-September).
Hidden Valley Fishing Permits: 1 day €5.00, 2 days €8.00, 7 days €27.00
