Glenmore offers 24,000 acres (10,000 hectares) of shooting including stalking for Red deer, World-class woodcock and snipe over pointers and spaniels or duck flighting on mountain lakes. Throw into the pot the occasional walked-up grouse, mountain hare, pigeon or pheasant and you get a sense of the variety of shooting available to you here.
Under the expert guidance of two of Ireland’s most experienced stalkers and game guns, with their teams of beaters and dogs, guests will be treated to sport of an exceptionally high standard.
The emphasis is entirely on wild birds, we don’t rear and release. If, because of the vagaries of climate, birds aren’t there in sufficient numbers we can take guns to a neighbouring estate for driven pheasant and duck shooting.
The day’s bag will usually be transformed into game-culinary delights by the Lodge chef, with venison and woodcock regularly featuring on the menu.
Rifles and shotguns can be rented from the estate or guests may bring their own. Properly trained and controllable gundogs are also welcome.
For those wishing to use their own guns, a valid European Firearms Pass needs to be held which should be available from your local police. In addition a permit needs to be applied for from the Irish police (Garda). The form can be downloaded from the Garda website at http://www.garda.ie/angarda/forms/nonresfirearmsform.pdf.
For those coming to stalk deer you will also require a Deer Hunting Licence from Duchas, National Parks and Wildlife,
Department of Arts, Heritage, Gaeltacht and the Islands, 7 Ely Place, Dublin 2. It can downloaded from their website at http://www.ealga.ie/.
All documentation can be arranged by our shooting staff, but please allow 6 weeks for processing.
Formal driven pheasant shooting can be arranged on neighbouring estates if notice is given well in advance.
Prices are available on application.
