Activities in Cobh

BellaVista Angling

The Bella Vista Hotel and Self Catering Suites in Cobh, is one of the top Angling providers in the harbour. We have a fleet of 17.5ft – 18ft self drive Warrior/Raider Boats fully fitted for inshore or deep sea angling in Cork Harbour. The boats were carefully selected as one of the safest and optimally designed boats for the inshore sea angler. Fitted with 80 and 100 HP four stroke engines, these boats are swift and make sure that you can get the most out of your fishing time in the harbour. There is also VHF radio, Garmin GPS / Plotter and Garmin Fish finder all fitted as standard. Each boat can fish up to maximum of four, has two bucket seats on swivels for maximum comfort.

In September 2011, a new Raider 18ft Cuddy joined the fleet and is a very comfortable spacious platform for 4 anglers.

Cork Harbour is the second biggest natural harbour in the world. It offers sheltered fishing in all but the strongest winds and there is a wealth of species that can be found inside the harbour. During small boat competitions, nearly all of the species can be caught within the safety of the harbour. There is something for every type of sea angler – specimens are common and there are several Irish records that have been caught here.
