Castle Point


Castle Point is situated three miles south of Kilkee. The track down to the fishing mark is rough and stony and it is best to leave the car on the side of the main road. This is a productive rock mark where anglers can spin for Pollack and mackerel and float fish for wrasse using peeler crab.Conger ,dogfish and rockling are taken on the bottom using mackerel bait on rough ground. This is a popular mark with local anglers and is a good during the mackerel season. Some herring and garfish are also caught here. Bait can be obtained from White Strand Killard beach 2.5 kms west of Doonbeg. The beach is in two sections and lugworm can be dug here on the left hand side at low water and the first 2 hours of the flood tide.Bait can also be obtained from Carrigaholt Pier which is situated 0.5 km on the eastern side of Carrigaholt village.

Access is easy and there is parking on the side of the road near the main Slipway. Soft and peeler crab can be collected both here and and among the rocks adjacent to the pier .Lugworm and small ragworm can also be dug in the sandy patches beside the Pier.
