Kildysart is known for its fishing, both in the estuary and in the local lakes. Gortglass, Clonshnacta and Effernan, close to the village, are trout fishing lakes only. Only members of the local angling club are allowed to fish in them. Visitors can charter a boat for fishing in the Shannon Estuary or for trips to the islands. The estuary holds fish such as conger, skate, dogfish, pollock, flounder, tope and Thorn Back Ray, all of which can also be caught off Cahercon Pier, which is open to the public and is about 1.6 km from Kildysart.

Kildysart GAA Club, located just south of the village in the townland of Ballynacragga was formed in 1886 and has earned many honours over the years.  In 2013, the club adopted the One Club Model when it integrated the Ladies Football with the main club.
