The Boats will depart each Morning at 10am and return at 6pm each day with the exception of Friday when they will depart Cobh at 9am. After each day’s fishing, the anglers will meet at the pub who has sponsored that particular day and listed as follows: Monday, Trade Winds. Tuesday, Ryans Bar. Wednesday, Commodore Hotel and Thusday it’s Kellys Bar, so if you’re out an about why not stop by and welcome them to Cobh.
