Scariff Angling Centre















Scariff village is on the scenic route of Lough Derg Co Clare (western shore) and lies about 35 kms from Limerick City and approx 48 kms from Shannon Airport.


Scariff  is ideally located as a base for the angler interested in fishing for Pike on the western shores of Lough Derg or coarse fishing locally on the Scariff River which can be very productive especially early in the year (April/May). It is also within easy access of the EAST CLARE LAKES and other shore venues along the western shores of the lake, MOUNTSHANNON and KILLALOE

There are masses of water on Lough Derg. For those more adventurous anglers,  it is worth hiring a boat and exploring the remote shores for large shoals of Bream and hybrids. 

Or  for those who have contacts to local landowners,  private access may be possible in a few places. Lakeland Holidays who offer Irish Tourist Board Approved Caravan & Camping & Mobile Homes Accommodation nearby also provide private access to their guests to 1 km of shoreline at Mountshannon. Contact Tel: +353 61 927225 Fax: +353 61 927336 or Email to Website:  Mountshannon, Co Clare.

Private fishing is also available on a stretch of the Scariff River opposite the harbour called the Island. Permission from Geraldine Moloney who provides this facility to guests using her  Bridge View (3 star) and Riverbank (4 star ) Cottages.

The Scariff River meanders along in front of the cottages. The mouth of the Scariff river which flows into Lough Derg frequently produces good catches of Bream, Roach, Hybrids, Pike and Trout. All this is within walking distance of 13 pubs! Scariff is a friendly place with all necessary amenities such as shops, pubs, restaurants, bank etc.  Boats can be hired locally. Bait and tackle is also available.
