  • Headed out yesterday morning for half day fishing trip with my family and had a great time, everyone caught fish which was a great feeling all round. Nothing like landing over a shoal of Mackerel...  more »

  • Brilliant day fishing on clewbay, great boat and best of tackle...Will definitely use Clewbay charters again.
  • Clewbay Charters offer fishing and tours of the stunning and quite unique Clew Bay which has 142 islands and treacherous waters. Going out on the water is the ONLY way to truly understand the bay, which dominates the life and history of this stunningly scenic part of Mayo. Skipper Darragh is friendly, approachable and knowledgeable (and be sure to ask him about the tale of the Clew Bay lobster). When i went there was a local author and historian, Michael, on board, and i believe he is a permanent fixture on the History Tour Trip. Michael knows all the stories, legends, wrecks, facts and figures about the bay and he too will tell you all you need to know - whether it be about the Pirate Queen Grace O'Malley who lived in and plundered these shores in the 16th century; or about the interesting history of each and every one of the islands, one of which was owned by Beatle John Lennon. Exceptional value, highly recommended, and i have been on many of these sorts of tours. DO IT - OR YOU'RE MISSING OUT!
