Welcome to the Carrigaholt Sea Angling Centre. Established in 2005, we have built a reputation as one of Ireland’s premier deep sea fishing charter providers.
Based on the south side of the Loop Head peninsula, where the Shannon estuary meets the rich fishing grounds of Ireland’s south west coast, our trips depart from the picturesque fishing village of Carrigaholt.
We offer deep sea fishing trips for everyone from the experienced Sea Angler to the fishing novice, whether it is for a Day Charter or a complete Fishing, Accommodation and Food package.
Carrigaholt is an ideal harbour to go deep sea fishing from. Being in an estuary it is possible to go fishing in all weather conditions and can provide a relaxing days fishing in shallow bays. The Estuary can produce excellent Ray fishing, double figure Bull Huss, flat fish like Plaice, Dab and Turbot, and in season is one of the best places to fish for Tope in Ireland. Because its waters are so nutrient rich the estuary is also home to many Bottle Nose Dolphins and these lovely creatures often pay us a visit on our way to the fishing grounds.
As you head out to Loop head you will have time to take in the wonderful scenery. The north side of the estuary is bordered by low cliffs that are of great interest to geologists and the magnificent view of Mount Brandon rises in front of you. At the end of the peninsula you are starting to get into the best fishing grounds to be found in Ireland.
Carrigaholt Sea Angling Centre offers its clients accommodation in Glencarrig Guest House, which is a farmhouse and home to Mary and Luke and their family.
In the winter of 2002/2003 we extended our farmhouse, which is just over a mile from the pier at Carrigaholt and built on accommodation for up to eight guests in 4 en suite bedrooms. There is also a sitting room where guests can relax after a hard days fishing and play cards or watch TV. and a recreation room with a pool table and dartboard, tea and coffee making facilities and a fridge for the occasional bottle of beer. Wi Fi internet connection is also available free of charge.
