We can be reached at the usual contact numbers, or by e mail, sfpa_info@sfpa.ie.

As announced by An Taoiseach, Micheál Martin T.D. on August 31st, 2021 and in line with the government re-opening plan, our offices will re-open to the public on Monday, September 20th.

SFPA Office opening hours are 9am – 5pm, Monday-Friday

To ensure the safety of the public and our staff, we will be adhering to the following steps for visitors to our offices.

  • Meetings in our offices are by pre-arranged appointment only
  • All visitors must wear a face mask for the duration of their visit to the office
  • Upon arrival to the office, you will be required to complete a visitor form


The SFPA has also undertaken a quick reference guide for fishermen and shellfish producers in the form of an FAQ to assist those that are looking to sell their catch direct. The FAQ can be accessed here.

If you have any question about our services at these times, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
