Fishing Trips


These kayaks were originally built for fishing.

Fast, stable, and comfortable, you can fish places you wouldn’t dream of reaching with a boat or normal kayak. The area is excellent for a variety of fish including bass and flatties and the kayaks are ideal for spinning and jigging.

They have plenty of room for spare tackle, lunch, and even your catch.

Fish Kenmare bay or other places by appointment. Our kayak fishing tours last three to four hours; or longer on request.

Rod and tackle included, live bait supplied on request. All fishing trips guided by ex-commercial and lobster fisherman Noel Donnelly. Fishing this area since he was a kid, his local knowledge and expertise comes in very handy if you are not familiar with the ground.
