Knockerra, West Clare


Centred on a crossroads, the picturesque small village of Knockerra is located close to the West Clare town of Kilrush.

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

The 50-acre Knockerra Lough holds a stock of brown and rainbow trout and fishes best in April and May. It can be fished from the bank.

Knockerra is close to 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 village features a school, church, shop, service station, primary school, church and a graveyard.

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