Fishing
The River Maigue runs through Adare and is well stocked with Wild Brown Trout.
Equipment can be hired locally and fishing tackle can be bought in the village.

The Maigue gets a nice run of spring salmon and a good run of grilse but is primarily a trout fishery. The spring fish normally run from mid-March to mid-May and the grilse from early June to the end of July. There is some good fishing for brown trout and slob trout. At low water much of the river can be waded in the Adare area. The system has been the subject of major arterial drainage some years ago but in recent times development work on the main channel and its tributaries has contributed greatly to improvement in trout stocks. The trout average about ¾ lb with some to 2 and even 3lbs. The system has all the usual fly hatches one associates with a rich limestone river, including mayfly.
