“A splendid day out”
Reviewed September 16, 2013

Spent last Saturday 14th September 2013 on a fishing trip in Clew Bay with Clewbay Charters, the best fishing trip I have been on with the most capable and attentive crew. Local knowledge combined with a sixth sense for fish meant we were soon reeling in the mackerel, Dogfish and Huss. Meantimes stories flowed and bacon and sausage sandwiches came hot from the mess. A perfect day on the bay- Highly recommended - Many thanks Darragh and Steve.

“Fishing with Clewbay Charters (1st time every to write a review)”
Reviewed September 7, 2013

I organised a day’s fishing for a family boys day out in August. We are not experienced fishermen so I was not too sure what to expect. In short the day was truly excellent, every one of our party of 9 had an outstanding day, our group ranged in age from 16 to 75!, We enjoyed our day so much I felt compelled to write my first every review of anything.

So if you want an truly memorable day I cannot recommended these guys highly enough.

We will be back next year.

“Whether you're fishing or just sightseeing a boat trip out into Clewbay is a must on a fine day”
Reviewed July 23, 2013

We were fortunate to have fabulous weather for our trip around the islands in Clewbay. We combined sightseeing with a little fishing and I would highly recommend this.It's an ideal trip for groups and families and anyone who would appreciate the beautiful scenery. The owner was a well informed guide, very accommodating and relaxed.It is also possible to do three hour fishing trips.Well worth the money!

Just spent 4 hours fishing in clew bay with clewbay charters! They couldn't have done enough for us! It was my familys first time fishing including 2 children (11 and 9 girls)! They loved it!! We fished for mackerel and it was plentiful! At one stage my 11 yr old daughter had 5 fish on her line! It was very impressive!!! Along with cups of tea and fresh fired mackerel baby potatoes boiled in salty water covered with butter was on the menu! I could have had a whole pot full!! Delish!! Great day out! Great skipper!! Great company!! Couldn't recommend them enough!! Child friendly and very patient even with a very squirmish mother!!
