Not sure they get consistent catches down that way....
You could do worse then coming as far as Dungarvan or Youghal or even Cork Harbour

Kit Dunne has a boat in Kilmore Quay running shark trips for the next couple of months. He catches blues and porbeagles pretty consistently, and he's often looking to fill individual seats.
