The River Lodge Woodcock and Snipe Shoot is one of the few quality registered shoots in Ireland. There are many woodcock shoots in Ireland, but very few in the Association Game Shoot Operators of Ireland, of which we are one of the founding members. Thanks to our membership of the A.G.S.O.I. we are able to rent vast areas of land and forest from the Irish government as well as all the private land that we use, and this rules out the possibility of over-shooting for our guests. We can guarantee that our guests see plenty of game and wildlife on the terrain that we cover.
What makes us stand out is that we have 100% repeat business and are on first name terms our loyal customers, many of whom have become regular guests and friends at River Lodge.
The River Lodge Woodcock and Snipe shoot has been proudly running for four generations. The Ryan family run hunting holidays in the world famous Ashford and Guinness Estates, where the world record for Woodcock still stands to this day! David and Martha both avid hunters now run the family business. The scenery and landscape lends itself well for your hunting holiday in Ireland. We do all ourWoodcock and Snipe shooting in our local area so we never have to travel far to the hunt and we only shoot an area once per season to ensure that our guests see plenty of woodcock and other game birds. As we have the exclusive rights for hunting over this area we can guarantee a great shooting holiday for you and your guests.
On the shoot we work Springer Spaniels and Labradors, we breed our own dogs for the shoot and train them from puppys, we have an amazing team of dogs.
