I'm delighted to have been cast in featured roles in two different projects this year. The annual fee has more than paid off for me, not just financially but from the experience I've gained.

Ali and Katy are always contactable to offer advice on the castings they facilitate and the package they offer is something I think every actor should invest in.

I had a great time shooting the commercial I was cast in. Everyone looked after me and made me feel really special, thanks to Fishpond I got the chance to experience something different. I also got loads of biscuits from the catering table which made the day. It was great fun getting soaked and what's more, it wasn't even raining - A big water truck made the rain. It really was the land of make believe for a day.

Definitely one of the highlights of my day is logging on to Fishpond to see what new postings there are. And now, success!

Just a short note to thank you once again for all your help in the past few weeks. I have just finished filming my most recent TVC. This is my 5th Ad in the 3 years, Irish and International, all thanks to Fishpond. I have also had other work & VO's as a result of Production Companies being able to view my profile. As an independent actor your help is immeasurable and I am getting more work than some of my represented actor friends! As you know my little boy, thanks to Pondlings, has also been shortlisted a couple of times in commercials (no luck yet but his time will come ! :) ) Both of us enjoy coming into see you and certainly from my little boy’s perspective you make it fun and undaunting. Keep up the good work and keep the work coming ! :)

Lochlainn Mc Kenna

I first joined Fishpond in January of 2010, back when Fishpond was but a little fry. Since then, I have used Fishpond to compile every single credit I've achieved over the last 3 and a half years. Fishpond is my one hub for all my acting material, readily laid out, professionally and respectably. My own Irish, Spotlight! Ali, Katy and the whole school are - and always have been - very approachable and swimmingly considerate. Auditions have been easy and nerveless and always a bit of fun, self tapes have been handled well and always viewed fairly. So here's a massive scaly fins up from a jolly jocose jellyfish enjoying his swim in a pond of possibility.

Lochlainn Mc Kenna (Actor)

Sean Finegan

I love that it puts your career in your own hands, seeing what jobs are available and picking and choosing what you feel suits you. The contract, the fee, the production companies involved, it's all so transparent, and a great way to learn about the industry for yourself. Four thumbs up.

I'm loving Fishpond because I have got two TV commercials in the last couple of months, along with two other video shoots for an advertising agency. So it's great value along with great service from Ali, Katy and team. Everyone is really nice to deal with too!! Thank you Fishpond!

Kyle Stokes

I'm loving Fishpond because it's a great insight to how things work in this wonderful industry. I recently got the chance to be apart of the google 10 years online video, which was an amazing experience. Fishpond is a great service to the industry as well as its actors. I would and do recommend it to any Actor.

Adrian Hudson

I'm loving Fishpond because the Fishpond team are top drawer and offer each and every member such wonderful opportunities week in and week out. Jump in. Make waves. Fishpond rocks!

Michael Dempsey

I like Fishpond because it alerts you personally about opportunities. I have been alerted to dozens of opportunities in the last month. It is a very user-friendly forum, once you have your profile set up it is very simple and quick to apply for jobs. Casting users can view my show reel and listen to my voice reel through my profile, which gives them a good indication of my range for casting. Contracts, terms and conditions are very clearly stated also through Fishpond. Overall I think it is the effective communication and user friendliness, which makes Fishpond stand out and saves all of us time.

I joined Fishpond two months ago and since then got cast in a new Meteor commercial. It was a great opportunity and has also been an excellent addition to my showreel. Cheers to Ali and all at Fishpond.

Muiris Crowley

I recently returned home to Ireland from the US, where immediately I joined Fishpond and a couple weeks in booked 'Romeo & Juliet Unplugged'. Just about to run out the door to try and land my first commercial, Thanks Fishpond. Everybody needs to get wet..... Jump in!

Trevor Somers

I am loving Fishpond because it allows actors to view castings and decide themselves if they feel a role is right for them. This unique freedom gives you the chance to meet casting directors, directors and others in a role you feel most suited to. It's an invaluable resource for anyone pursuing acting work.

Seamus Feerick

I'm loving Fishpond because as a freelance self represented actor it is one of the few avenues through which I can access work and like all " fishing expeditions " now and again luck smiles on one and recently I had a catch!

Eve Macklin

Ali and team are always so helpful and friendly, totally on the ball with what's going on casting wise in Dublin. Membership is worth every penny & thanks to my last job... Santa was able to stop by this Christmas! Right on Fishpond x

Fran Cooke

As an Actor who worked primarily on the stage I wanted to try my hand at TV and Film, but without an agent or relevant experience how could I achieve this? The answer is Over the last year and thanks to Fishpond I have attended many auditions and put together introductions and monologues. I have also been lucky enough to secure a part on a Corporate DVD and more recently a Television advert. Now I am in a position to put together a showreel and hopefully progress further.

Fran Cooke (Actor)

Donna Lyons

Well it all sounded a little fishy to start off with when I heard about it but then when I took the leap I couldn't believe how in the loop I was straight away. Now all I can say is 'what a great catch'. People in the industry can now get their hooks into me easier & all my info is on show for everyone to see. Plus no audition will ever escape me. I'm a big fish at last ..gloop glopp!

Donna Lyons (Actor)

Gemma Crowley

Well obviously I'm a huge Fishpond lover, securing one gig not only got me out of a tight spot at the time (you actor people know the tight spot I'm talking about ;-] ), but it paid for my Fishpond membership multiple times! But my favourite part of my Fishpond story is how well perceived my profile is internationally. I moved to Chicago, U.S. last year and it is great to be able to pass around my card (yes they do that here) with my Fishpond link on it. They can see my headshot, CV and my videos, which is great as I haven't got a demo yet! So there you go, Fishpond has travelled and Chicago loves it! Best wishes for all the future.

Gary Mullan

Just a note to say I am getting ready to head to Sligo to do "What's it worth", which I secured through Fishpond, which is fantastic as I only joined the site a couple of months ago.

Gary Mullan (Actor)


I would like to say a BIG thank you to Fishpond and the all team for all the help and encouragement they gave to my daughter Isabella. Without it she would never have gotten the opportunities and success from recent castings in both the still campaign for Eir and a supermarket commercial for Lidl. Isabella is loving the whole process and the experience alone if fantastic! She says it’s the best thing that she has ever done and from an 8 year old that says an awful lot.

Isabella ((Young Actor))


Fishpond are admirable at what they do. Since Kacey joined she has been given the opportunity to audition for several roles that match her playing age. Since Kacey secured her first job her confidence has grown and she feels confident for future casting.

Elaine O Dwyer

Auditions can be frustrating, disappointing and disheartening at times BUT when one door closes another will ALWAYS open. Fishpond gives actors the opportunity to do their thing, again and again. THANK YOU to the pond of fish who gave me the opportunity to work on a great commercial with a great bunch of people and ultimately get paid for it! Anyone who has an interest in acting needs dive into the pond and become a member -what have you got to lose?
