I and four friends have just returned to Cornwall after a weeks fishing holiday based in Clonakilty.

Without doubt we enjoyed our week which was made all the better for the warm welcome we received from everyone.

It seemed to us the whole town talked to us. We stayed at O’ Donavans and have nothing but praise for the staff and hotel generally.

We had the best fish & chips ever at the Fastnet Catch if in the UK this would win the fish & chip shop of the year every year.

The fishing and tackle shop manager at Clon Tackle was happy and helpful and one can not mention Clonakilty without mentioning John the Traffic Warden what a star!

We ate at most restaurants and did not have a bad meal in fact they were all good.

The scenery, the fishing but most of all the people made this an enjoyable and hopefully one to be repeated holiday.


Many Thanks
