If fishing in Galway takes your fancy, then you have to meet Jim Riddell. Jim, who is our resident Ghillie and who has fished Lough Corrib since he was a child, can bring small groups out onto Lough Corrib to fish for Trout, Salmon, Pike, Perch and Bream.
Fishing on the Corrib lasts the whole day…..starting at about 8.00am, you will be taught how to tie your own flies, cast your rod, and learn what is precious to all fishermen……Patience. There is no guarantee of catching fish but with Jim by your side, he will bring you to the main feeding grounds for Pike, Trout & Salmon.
However, these grounds change monthly especially during the Duck & May Fly Season. For lunch, why not stop off at one of the 365 Island of the Corrib. At Inchagill, one of the largest islands on the lake, you can explore the remnants of a Monastery dating back some 500 years. The famous Guinness Family use to shoot Pheasant and other Game in Inchagill, while the towering trees and Fauna of the Island will make you think you are a million miles from anyone.
A truly memorable experience!Rates: €200.00 for a half day or a full day. (Credit Card details required at time of booking. Cancellation Policy 7 Days prior to Outing) Glenlo Abbey is the perfect location from which to enjoy fishing breaks in Galway and Connemara!
