Hop aboard a boat and go fishing in Donegal Bay with a local that knows the best spots to catch fish. What’s biting will depend on the water conditions and the season, but be assured that the skipper will take you to the likeliest places to land a big one. All the gear and tackle will be supplied, so all you have to do is concentrate on reeling in the fish. There is no telling what you might catch or how many, as these pristine waters are teeming with cod, mackerel, haddock and flounder. Lesser-known species include coalfish, dogfish and launce, a slender-bodied fish commonly called a sand eel for the way it burrows in the bottom of the sea. The views will be spectacular the entire time, as the bay features some of the most stunningly rugged coastline in County Donegal. Keep an eye out for dolphin, which are often spotted frolicking on the water’s surface.

• Go fishing with a local on a boat in Donegal Bay.
