About the neighbourhood
Carna is a small village in Connemara, County Galway, Ireland, located on the country's west coast in the heart of the Gaeltacht and about 50 km west of Galway city. There are four shops, a pharmacy, 2 pubs and one hotel in the village. One of the shops has petrol pumps and an ATM .

Carna is in a strong Gaeltacht region, so most of the people speak Irish at home. The population is almost totally (96 per cent - 2006) bilingual with English being the second language spoken.

Off the coast of Mace Head in the parish of Carna, is Oileán Mhic Dara (Mac Dara's Island). This is the location of a stone-built early Christian church and the cross of Saint Mac Dara, who is the Patron Saint of fishermen and sailors in the area. There is a pilgrimage to the Island once a year on 16 July...
Getting around
Having a car is recommended but there is a bus service from Galway city. Some of our guests plan a day trip to Galway on the bus.

The walks around Carna are amazing and there is a new coastal walk form nearby Moyrus Beach..highly recommended loop walk

The local roads and lanes are perfect for bikes and a great way to see the local flora and fauna up close. I pick wild flowers that grow along the side of the lanes and stop to chat to friendly donkeys and Connemara ponies.
