Glencar Lough , locally known as Glencar Lake, is a freshwater lake in the northwest of Ireland. It covers an area of 1.15 square kilometres and lies mostly in County Leitrim with a smaller part in County Sligo. Glencar Waterfall is located near the lake's north shore on the Leitrim side.

Glencar Lough lies in the Glencar Valley, between the Dartry Mountains to the north and the mountain range including Cope's Mountain to the south. The lake is located about 10 kilometres northeast of Sligo and about 15 km west of Manorhamilton. It is 2.5 km long from west to east and 0.6 km wide. The lake has two crannogs : one at the western end near the Drumcliff River outlet and the other at the eastern end near the Diffreen River.
