Lough Derravaragh is located about 14km north west of Mullingar with the village of Multyfarnham on its southern shore and Castlepollard to the north east. It is an exceptionally good pike lake and holds stock of big pike up to specimen weight.

Lough Derravaragh is a long narrow lough almost 8km in length with an area of over 1080 hectares. Public access is available at several locations, including Donore. The northern part of the lough is broad and shallow while the long neck towards Crookedwood is narrow and deep.

It can be fished from the shore but a boat is recommended. There are large stocks of coarse fishing including roach and bream. Big trout up to 7kgs can be taken on the troll.
