Location and Accomodations    

The GreatPikeFishing Company has accommodations based in and around Scariff on the Western shore of the famous pike fishing destination of Lough Derg. The town is located about 35 kms from Limerick City and approx 53 kms from Shannon Airport. It is very easy to find being on the lakeshore route. Winner of the Tidy Towns Award over 10 years ago, this scenic village is a perfect location for the angler who wants to explore the mighty Lough Derg.

 

Our accommodation options range from Lakeside villas/houses with magnificent views over the lake to a four bedroom Farmhouse close to the village. All of the houses are fully furnished and can sleep from four to twelve anglers in comfort.

The Lakeside houses are recently constructed and extended and are a short walk down to the boat houses so that you are able to fish to your own schedule. Each house is complete with full amenities such as washer/dryer, dishwasher, fully equipped kitchen, central heating, telephone and TV.
Iniscealtra also comes complete with an outside barbecue area, tennis court and play area for children.
 

The day commences with a full Irish breakfast to prepare you for your day on the lakes, this will be prepared and served in the house at your schedule. Following breakfast, in the case of the Lakeside accommodations, you can take a short stroll down to one of the boathouses where the boats can be found inside the secure and newly constructed boathouses. There are facilities in each of the boat houses for changing into appropriate clothing, storage of fishing equipment and other amenities.
Each boat house may contain up to 10 boats, and so your group will all be accommodated in the same facility. After preparing the boats for the days fishing, it is a short motor through the private canal into the main lake.

               
 

Custom fishing charts will be provided to give direction for those that may not be familiar with the lake, and provide a good basis for the fishing plan. The charts are also marked with ideal places on the lake where the boat may be brought into shore and a fire can be made so that you can prepare a hot drink and lunch from the pack that will be provided to you for lunch.
On returning to the boathouses in the evening, you will be able to change out of your outdoor clothing and stow fishing equipment within the facility for use the next day. Arriving back at the house, you will find a warm and comfortable atmosphere in which to relax and recover from what was likely a strenuous day on the lake.

The evening meal is prepared in the kitchen and presented in the main dining area.
 

The menu for the evening can be adjusted to accommodate each groups individual tastes, but will be typical Irish recipes consisting of a hearty three course meal that is typical of the area and makes use of local ingredients. Soft drinks and juices will accompany the meal, alcoholic drinks such as beer and wine are available for a small charge.
In the summer months, the evening light will last until about 10pm., giving you the opportunity to further relax either outside on the patio or inside the main lounge and enjoy the views and wildlife looking out over the lake.

We will be happy to customize the accommodations, schedules and meals to suit your tastes and requests – just let us know in advance.
