forgot to mention a couple of shops in the original post and i don't think they have cropped up.
Duffys Galway, similar to Rorys small shop but i have always had good service when i went in there.
Ballina Angling Centre, opposite Ridge pool in Ballina, stock wise one of the better game shops, but some of the stuff does seem on the high side.
There is a tackle shop in Castlebar, can't remember its name its in an industrial estate and is a large shop with a very good selection of rods and clothing etc, there was even a boat in there (i am sure someone will recall its name) I was only in there once and i found the guy behind the counter friendly and helpful.

Rory's I have gone off, the staff with the exception of Paddy just dont seem interested.
Cleeres, I have to say I find them very helpful and always forthcoming with advice. I asked about access to a stretch of river for the life of me I couldn't figure out how to get to it with out a long walk but I knew there had to be a place you could park nearer. The assistant didnt know but promised to check it out. Two days later he rang with the details.
Southside angling great staff but they can be pricey.
Anglers world they are pike men and in that line they are second to none.
Viking angling (Bray) lovely lads but they can be expensive €3.50 plus a fly.
Baumanns. Not for me They plain lied to my face in order to try and get me to buy something inferior rather than say they didnt have the item in stock they told me it had been discontinued and they had not been able to get stock for two years (the same item i bought a month previous for a friend). Swore I would never cross the door again and have not done so.
Tallaght rod and gun. The guy who owns this needs a personality transplant.

Does anyone have recommendations for online shops that deliver to Ireland?

Why not try support Irish tackle shops. Competition in the Market has lowered prices recently to compete with online shops. Leaving yourself wide open for customs when buying from the likes of USA.

There's only really one decent tackle shop near me. I buy a lot of the smaller stuff there. But for stuff like rods they have limited selection and are quite expensive. I wouldn't be looking at getting stuff from the U.S.A. but there are some Euro/UK and even Irish shops that have online shops and deliver to Ireland. I was wondering if anyone had recommendations for any of them.
