We were a family of three adults and three children and not one of us had ever fished in our lives. What a fantastic trip this was - learning to fish with three children aged 11, 10 and 8 is no easy task but Darragh was extremely patient and the kids were soon catching mackerel, dog fish and ray. Darragh... More

We made a wonderful sunny evening trip with captain Darragh. He is a good storyteller and knows everything about Clewbay, the islands And fishing. My 12 year Old son and I even got the change to fish. Unfortunately, the fish didn't bite. But it was great fun trying. Luckily on our way back to Newport we spotted a seal swimming.... More

A wonderful couple of hours spent with Captain Darragh sightseeing round the islands and a bit of fishing. Had 4 young children with me - between 1 and 6 years old, and they were well looked after and all enjoyed the experience. Captain Darragh even let them steer the boat on the way back! Lovely clean boat as well. Highly... More

I was lucky enough to catch my first skate with the help of skipper Darragh, a red letter day never to be forgotten. Excellent, fast, spacious and well equipped boat. Very knowledgeable and helpful skipper (not a bad cook either!) I can't recommend Whitewater II and Clew Bay Charters highly enough and will be back out with them as soon... More

A great day out with Dara who proved to be very knowledgeable about Clew Bay and know all the best location for the many different varieties of fish available in the Bay

We enjoyed a mid-afternoon charter with Darragh during our most recent trip to Mayo. Darragh is a friendly and cordial captain who knows these waters intimately. The boat is immaculate and well equipped. We did some touring and fished for mackerel. Darragh will cook up a batch on board - doesn't get any fresher than that! My only issue is... More

Spent last Saturday 14th September 2013 on a fishing trip in Clew Bay with Clewbay Charters, the best fishing trip I have been on with the most capable and attentive crew. Local knowledge combined with a sixth sense for fish meant we were soon reeling in the mackerel, Dogfish and Huss. Meantimes stories flowed and bacon and sausage sandwiches came... More
