Scarriff

Toilets availableShowers availableWater availablePower availablePump Out available

Scarriff is a small village on the river Scarriff, just off Scarriff bay on Lough Derg. The village was once an important market town, and today the market survives, and Scariff and the surrounding areas are renowned for the quality of the angling. Just a short trip downriver is the village of Tuamgraney, which can be reached by road or river.

History

The river was only navigable up to the shallows at Scarriff until the Shannon Commissioners dredged the river and lined the banks in the eighteen forties. The village is closely linked to TuamGraney, where Brian Boru, High King of Ireland is reputed to have carried our repairs to the church in the year 1000.

Angling Information

The Cloughan river drains a number of small coarse lakes to the east and provides good coarse fishing.

Lough Atorick and Lough Graney are good for small trout.

Places of Interest

The Church of Ireland church in Tuamgraney is said to be one of the oldest churches in Ireland still in use today. The church can be traced back to the tenth century, and it is believed that some of the windows in the church are from an even earlier church in Killaloe.
