Killybegs Angling Charters operates from Killybegs, Co Donegal, Irelands premier fishing port, sailing daily all year round, subject to weather conditions. Killybegs is a lively town and is a great location for a weekend break. There is a wide range of bars and restaurants where customers can have a meal or drinks after their trip.



We run a charter boat service offering deep-sea angling, sightseeing, diving and wildlife spotting all year round - weather permitting. Full day trips - 10.00 a.m. to 5.00 pm (up to 12 persons), evening trips or half days for angling or sightseeing available. Shorter mackerel fishing trips are available when the mackerel are in May to September. Fishing on reefs yields pollack, cod, ling, coalfish, wrasse, gurnards (red, grey and tub) and conger etc. In the recent All-Ireland, Master Angler competition held here (August 18th and 19th 2007) 18 species of reef fish were caught. Tope fishing (starts in May) and Shark fishing is good from August onwards these are mostly female sharks from 15 Kgs to about 60 Kgs on their migration down the West Coast of Ireland. This fishing lasts into October when the water temperature drops and it becomes too cold for them. Shark fishing and Tuna fishing are available from August onwards.
We cater for all clients from the experienced to the beginner, young and old, making sure that everyone has a very enjoyable and productive trip.




Boat is berthed at Blackrock Pier in Killybegs. Passenger pickup at the slip way on the Shore Road Killybegs.

Sliabh League is within a 2-hour return sight seeing trip – it is a marvellous sight at all times of the day and many customers make the trip at sunset when it is spectacular. Sightseeing trips are becoming more popular – it is a lovely trip hugging the South West Donegal coast down by Muckross Head, Teelin, Carrigean Head and finally Sliabh League – at almost 600m (claiming to be the highest sea cliff in Europe).
