The Culfin fishery is located approximately half way between Clifden and Westport in the beautifully scenic area called Connemara in the west of Ireland.
The fishery offers Salmon, Sea Trout and Brown Trout fishing on two lakes and a river. Fly fishing is recommended but we also allow spinning with barbless hooks. The lakes, Lough Fee and Lough Muck, may be fished from the bank or by boat. Fishing costs €40 per day and fishing equipment is available to hire for €10 per day. If you would like to fish on the Culfin please submit the form on the right and we will get back to you to confirm your booking.

The season is as follows:
Salmon: 1st February to 30th September
Sea Trout: 1st June to 30th September
Brown Trout: 15th February to 12th October

This year the fishery is fully open for Salmon with no quota restrictions. As in previous years all Sea Trout must be returned. Full details of the rules regarding Salmon and Sea Trout fishing in Ireland can be found on the
Central Fisheries Board website.
Fish Counter

All anglers should also have a government licence which is required when fishing for Salmon or Sea Trout anywhere in Ireland. These can be purchased at the fishery office.

If you are new to the Culfin and would like a guide for the day one can be arranged for €100.

We now have a fish counter on the river which is giving us accurate figures for Salmon and Sea Trout entering and leaving the system. This will allow us to build up a profile for average annual and monthly numbers within the fishery.

Please telephone (+353) 095 43997 or email Bowen at: for bookings.
We also have a seven bed self catering cottage for rent very close to the fishery. For details see The Coach House.
