Limerick Clare Galway Mayo Sligo Leitrim

Introduction - Co. Clare - Boats

Clare can offer you everything in shore fishing, from the latest Irish record Bass, a mere 17 lb 13 oz taken from the shore at Doonbeg, to Green Island near Lahinch where Porbeagle and Blue Shark are available from the shore, to the wild sea cliffs of Black Head where everything is catchable, and back to the mighty Shannon Estuary where record bearded rockling rub shoulders with massive packs of thornback and blonde ray...  As with all our trips around the coast by county, we will start nearest the last county, Limerick and work our way out the Shannon Estuary, round Loop Head, head up past all those bass beaches towards the towering Cliffs of Moher, onto Fanore beach and Black Head and east into Galway Bay, heading for the town of Ballyvaughan...
