    Depends where you're fishing and what the banks and background clearance is like.
    Up at Navan they fish doublehanded rods as the bank is low.
    The lower stretches especially from Slane down have high banks and most will fish single handed rods 10ft 8 weights or trout set-up's. The odd switch rod but it's heavy to use single handed most of the time.

    13ft would probably cover it easily enough I'd say.
    There some good youtube videos from lads that fish in navan you might get something from them. You may have seen them

    I would say to use a 14fter or 15ft rod, the river is wide, requires sink lines at times and you are standing on the bank casting for a lot of the stretches so the longer rod helps with this also. You'll cover the river far better and with less fuss with the longer rod.
    I say all this as a switch rod fan BTW
