Take a Trip Around Roundstone Bay and Feast on a Lobster Lunch!

Roundstone Bay & Island Tours is a new venture by local Damien O’Malley, a fourth generation fisherman, brought up around the scenic coast of the Wild Atlantic Way. Setting off from the picturesque Roundstone Harbour in Connemara, there’s a choice of 4 tours, with private hire available too.



There’s a wealth of scenery, beaches, islands, flora, fauna and wildlife to enjoy, all within easy reach. Take a tour, or arrange a drop off and pick up and spend the afternoon exploring a deserted island. Packed picnic lunches of the freshest seafood are available, or book a ‘Catch & Cook’ trip and feast on lobster and more by a sandy beach!


Booking is via roundstonebayandisland.ie - with immediate confirmation. Just an hour from Galway city, it’s the perfect addition to any trip to the west!


The tours take in the beaches of Gurteen and Dog’s Bay, the harbour at Ervallagh, the deserted island of Inishlacken, with its unspoilt beaches, lovely walks, and pristine waters, and much more. Along the way, expect to see Roundstone Bay’s resident seals as well as dolphins, sunfish, otters & basking sharks! In the safe hands of your skipper Damien, on board the custom built 21 foot boat ‘Benbaun’, sit back enjoy the views, and if you like, haul a lobster pot or drop a fishing line! Back on dry land, Roundstone has a choice of pubs to toast your trip!
