Lough Currane (Irish: Loch Luíoch), also called Lough Leeagh, is a lake in County Kerry, Ireland. Waterville lies on its western bank, close to the Atlantic Ocean and Raheen lies on its southern bank. It covers an area of 2,500 acres (10 km2) and is 3.5 miles (5.6 km) long and 2 miles (3.2 km) at the widest point.

The lake had the St. Finan Cam (inhabited c. 7th century) monastery on Church Island. To the south of the lake is Inis Uasal (Noble Island), an island dedicated to St. Finan. The Annals of Inishfallen mention that Amchad, the "anchorite of God" was buried on the island in 1058.
