Killala Bay is one of the prime fishing locations in Ireland, with a vast variety of fishing and species available. The deep waters off the continental shelf are quite close to the coast, leading to unusual catches such as john dory and even hake!

When you arrive back after a days fishing there is a designated area in this property where you can prepare and store your catch.
