Went on the Fungi trip which lasted an hour and was excellent value. Full marks to the skipper for making sure we saw plenty of Fungi and got lots of photo opportunities, I doubt if anyone could complain of bad value....maybe a little commentary would have been a welcome addition to give a little background

Mary, at the desk of Dingle Bay Charters, was simply a delight to deal with. She gave us all the information we could possibly need (weather forecast, best times of day to go out, variety of boating options) and made sure that we would even be warm enough (offering us extra layers for the chilly April day). And when we... More

Mary O'Neill was very accommodating to our schedule for April 13, 2017. We booked our outing for 6 with Skipper Pat Begley on the Saimhin Sogh. Skipper Pat knew the best spots and had the right lures. As soon as we dropped our lines we hit on some Pollack. All 6 of us were busy reeling them in. When ever... More

... to make the trip vaguely interesting. The host was distinctly uninterested in talking about the area. And chasing a poor solo dolphin round the bay with a fleet of motor boats in the name of 'nature watching' is pretty base.

We went out yesterday for a short 2hr session on one of Dingle Bay charters boats, another fantastic afternoon. Loads of mackerel caught, along with some nice pollack. Couldn't believe the fishing we had in 2 hrs, just a short journey from the marina. We have used these guys for the last couple of years and they have always provided... More

We showed up about 11 and scheduled a tour at 2. We went over to oceanworld aquarium while we waited. It was a rocky ride out that spooked a few kids but at our request they slowed down. We saw cliffs, caught more fish than we could eat, and saw Fungie on the way back into the harbor. It was... More

Had an excellent fishing trip today with Pat. Great to have a look at the bay and surrounding coastline. We did some fishing and were lucky to go through a shoal of pollock. We've just eaten them for tea, absolutely delicious with lemon and wild garlic. Pat carefully positioned the boat so that we had the best chance of a... More

BACK late and office was closed and wasn't able to get refund. Recently found out that the company boat went to every effort for us to see fungie and was... More

My father and I always love fishing and do not believe in keeping more fish than we need (we are recreational CAR anglers). For my father's birthday in July 2014 I got him a fishing trip and the man that took us out on the boat was called Paki (not sure if that's the correct spelling). When I started letting... More

Great trip! Exactly what we were looking for while visiting the Dingle Peninsula! On time & easy to schedule, (even the same day, fortunately!) Very nice boat and plenty of good equipment. Our boys had a great time & enjoyed catching some big fish! Our Captain knew just where to go, and recommended a nearby restaurant that prepared it for... More
