About Galway Bay Fishing
Galway Bay Fishing was established in 1999 by Kevin Mac Gabhann as a labour of love. Kevin was a well-known sailor and angler long before he launched his own boat and it may even be fair to say that his "marriage" to the "Maighdean Mara" (or "Maid of the Sea") was the fulfillment of a lifelong dream.

Best part about our trip was without doubt the skipper Kevin. Best boat skipper I ever went out with. Despite the current shortage of mackerel these days he got us onto plenty for baiting up for good pollack fishing. Every one around the boat caught. Some of the less experienced anglers had great help and encouragement from Kevin. Very easy access to well equipped boat and fishing off the Aran Islands in Galway bay. I will go again.

I've done a couple of deep sea fishing excursions but this experience had to be the best one yet. Kevin was THE BEST captain to have. I haven't been fishing in a little over a year so I felt a bit rusty on some of my techniques. Kevin was there to give helpful advice as well as untangle a few lines. We spent the entire day fishing and at one point had the Cliffs as an amazing backdrop. We saw tons of fish, jellyfish, sharks, and even some dolphins! The crew was incredibly friendly/knowledgeable and really made it a point to make sure everyone had a good time. If you're in Galway or Spiddal this is an absolute must do. This was trip was great solo and I'm sure kids would have just as much of a blast. By far one of the best days of my trip.
