About Ireland

Ireland is a sporting Mecca for wild bird enthusiasts who, in particular, are looking for snipe and woodcock shooting, although one must remember that there are no guarantees when it comes to a bag.

There are also several recently developed driven pheasant shoots in both Southern and Northern Ireland which provide some interesting and varied sport. As you’d expect, the unique Irish hospitality is second to none no matter where you go.

For woodcock and snipe there are no better places than estates like Colebrook, Belle Isle or Temple House. If you are looking for driven pheasants then the Baronscourt estate offers interesting sport with memorable accommodations.
