Fishing from the pier in Liscannor

County Clare's waterways and coastline can provide a unique experience for everyone, a huge range of sightseeing, cultural and outdoor activities. For total relaxation why not try casting a line into calm waters of lakes, into the Atlantic waves or the fast flowing waters of rivers. County Clare has a wealth of rivers and lakes and miles of coastline, which means wherever you are in Clare you're not far from a great fishing spot.

There is excellent angling for all species of coarse fish, on the River Shannon and on its largest lake, Lough Derg, east Clare. Boats can be chartered from many places along the Shannon Estuary including Killaloe, Portumna and Mountshannon and fisheries are well serviced for bank and boat fishing.



Surfing in LahinchThe villages of Tulla, Broadford & Feakle are surrounded by some 30 to 40 lakes collectively referred to as the East Clare Lakelands. Some of the lakes on the River Fergus system, north Clare are especially good for Pike and Perch. Among the most popular are Ballycullinan, Cullaun, Tullymacken, Ballyteighe and Ballyala. The village of Corofin is at the centre of this system and all lakes are within an 8 mile radius.

The Clare coast line is famous for its shore angling which can be done at Fanore, Doolin, Liscannor and Lahinch. Deep sea angling can also be arranged locally. Boats can be chartered from Kilrush Marina, Liscannor Bay, Miltown Malbay and Quilty. All of these beaches provide good shore angling for pollock, bass and mackerel.
