Could someone give me an idea of the cost of a basic fishing rod setup please

I'm thinking of going fishing for Mackerel but don't want to spend a fortune until I'm sure I want to continue doing it so the Lidl offers (I don't know which one I'd need anyway) seem like a nice price to try something out and see how it goes.
If it's mackeral you're after you shouldn't need more than a 10 foot rod. If you really want to get into it it's worth buying a reliable brand like mitchell or shimano or emerald, that's just 3 brands off the top of my head that sell good spinning rods. You can get a decent shimano rod from €35 up and you'll get you're moneys worth out of them. One of them should do you for float fishing or spinning or whatever it is you're looking to do.
So in short don't go for lidl rods if you're starting out, you could end up disappointed.
Hope this helped man

Thanks for the advice Paddy, that's brilliant. I'll try the local fishing shop then.
