Inishboffin Island

The island has a lot to offer the angler who likes to fish from the shore, rocks and beaches. A wide range of fish can be caught by using spinners, feathers or strips of mackerel or, indeed, any fish-type bait. The most common fish caught from the shore is pollack, mackerel, wrasse, conger, plaice, ray and plenty of dog fish. There are many outcrops and small islands close by which are all good grounds for a wide variety of species, grounds which are easily reached by the island's deep sea angling boat.

The island has a good ferry service from Cleggan and anglers are very welcome to stay over in any of the excellent hotel, guesthouse and self-catering, all to a high standard. There is one boat which runs deep sea angling trips every day. For further information contact: Aidan Day, Franmore, Ennisboffin, Co. Galway, tel: 095 45865.
