Fishing Adventures Ireland

Fishing Adventures Ireland and Skipper Séan invite you to explore the beautiful Loop Head Peninsula on the Wild Atlantic Way. The company operates out of Kilbaha, County Clare. That small fishing village is located just a mile from Loop Head lighthouse in a sheltered bay.

Your fishing trip will begin early in the morning. Skipper Séan will greet you with a warm welcome aboard the ‘Lady Gwen II’, a 33’ Lochin boat. She is a spacious and comfortable craft, built in Rye Sussex. The Lady Gwen II was uphauled with the state of the art navigational and fish finding electronics by Simrad and Garmin.

The Lady Gwen II comes powered by a 265 HP Perkins engine. She is outfitted with rods and reels by the leading brands, such as Abu Garcia, Penn, and Shakespeare.

You will be fishing the reefs and sandy bottoms of the Shannon Estuary and the Atlantic Ocean, using a range of fishing techniques, such as drift fishing, jigging, and bottom fishing.

The list of your potential targets will include crème de la crème of the local waters. You will be able to get your hands on Cod, John Dory, Haddock, Conger Eel, Pollock, Ray, Skate, and Whiting to name a few. There are also a few octopuses around, along with Porbeagle, Tope, and Blue Sharks.

Fishing Adventures Ireland will provide you with gear and tackle, but you are welcome to bring your own.
