Knock, West Clare


The picturesque village of Knock offers extensive views across the Shannon Estuary, Clonderlaw Bay and Kilkerrin Peninsula.

Knock pier is a Designated Point on the Shannon Estuary Way, a spectacular and unspoiled riverside loop drive around Ireland’s deepest watercourse. The 207 km-long loop winds its way through stunning and changing landscapes and river vistas, and through the gateway towns of Limerick, Ennis, Bunratty, Listowel and nearby Kilrush where the mighty River Shannon meets the wild Atlantic Ocean.   The River Crompaun enters the Shannon near Knock.

The Killimer-Tarbert Car ferry is located less than 5-minutes’ drive from the village providing a great link to Clare from Kerry and Limerick and saving driving time.

Local amenities can be found in the town of Kilrush and include restaurants, accommodation, shops, and a marina. Other nearby villages include Cranny, Labasheeda, Knockerra, Kilmurry McMahon, and Coolmeen.
