Sea angling with an experienced skipper on a custom-built fishing boat is the safest and most rewarding way to enjoy this sport.

Carrigaholt Sea Angling trips, led by skipper Luke Aston, take in the Shannon Estuary or the more open seas at Loop Head itself, depending on the weather.

In strong winds, trips go east from Carrigaholt pier towards the sheltered waters of the estuary, where you can expect to catch ray, conger, bass, dogfish and tope.

Alternatively, take some time out to go on a “Fishing Adventure” on the Lady Gwen 11 with skipper Sean Maguire. Sean caters for the novice and the experienced angler, groups and individuals, and family’s are welcome. Rods and reels are provided but you can bring your own lucky rod if you wish.

When weather permits, the waters at the edge of the peninsula supply some of the best fishing in Europe. Anglers have caught more than 20 different species in one day’s fishing there, and some crews have landed up to 500 kilos of whitefish in a single trip. These include cod, pollock, saithe, ling, haddock, whiting, hake, spurdog, ray, and of course mackerel, which in turn can be used as bait for blue shark and big skate, among others.
