Garykennedy is one of Ireland’s  hidden gems. Scenically located on the shores of Lough Derg, this quiet hamlet is a small unspoilt fishing and boating village with a reputation for traditional Irish music. The ruins of a 15th century tower dominate the harbour.

This is our both our home and your base for your Lough Derg fishing holiday.

The village boasts two fine pubs, Larkin’s traditional thatched pub and restaurant (Gastro Pub of the Year 2011) and, just next door, Ciss Ryan’s .

Ciss Ryans is very popular with local and foreign anglers alike.  These pubs buzz with activity especially during the summer months when boats pull into the harbour and their occupants come ashore for some food, drink and good company. Traditional Irish music sessions take place regularly here too.

In recent years, facilities in the village have been added to cater for the fishing and boating community who are such frequent visitors here. An expanded slipway for boats, showers and changing rooms, BBQ and picnic areas have all been created.

Conveniently located just 10 miles from the market town of Nenagh, Co.Tipperary,  Garykennedy is just 45 minutes from Shannon Airport and a convenient  1.5hrs from Dublin from Cork.
