In the south-west of Ireland lies the county of Kerry. It is an incredibly beautiful area with mountains and valleys, rivers and streams and lakes. You also finds Ireland's highest mountain, Carrantuohill at 1041 m in this area.

Our partner in Ireland has approx. 20,000 hectares of varying hunting area in Co. Kerry, where there is a really good population of sika deer. In the higher lying areas there is also a good population of wild goats.

Roughshooting:

In addition to rifle hunting, a number of different shotgun hunts are also offered, the most popular of which is probably the traditional roughshooting.

We can offer unique experiences for hunting parties from 2 to 12 hunters. They can enjoy a good day of hunting in some of the most unspoilt areas of Kerry, where it abounds with woodcock, snipe, duck and other game. The hunters are divided into groups, and for every other hunter there is a guide. A group of 4 hunters will be accompanied by 2 guides. One thing is for sure, the hunters will have an exciting day with experienced hunters and dogs through various terrains, from Kerry's bumpy bogs and moors to rolling green hills and mountains.

The hunt will mainly be for woodcocks and snipes and it is not unusual for each group to see up to 15-40 woodcocks per. day, depending on weather conditions during the period u are hunting in. In addition, there is also other game in the area, such as hares and ducks. If you take a hunting day exclusively on snipes, it will not be abnormal to see up to 70-200 snipes on a hunting day.

A typical hunting day:

- Departure from the hotel around 09:00 am with hunting guides.
- Hunting until 13:00 pm
