Town: The small village of Carna lies on the shores of Galway Bay, overlooking Galway Harbour, in the scenic region of Connemara. Lying off the coast of Carna is St. MacDara's Church and Island, a notable holy place in west Ireland, and a site of pilgrimage and mass in July. The sailing crafts, the 'Galway Hookers' were made in Carna, as well as a small boat called the Currach, and the area is well known for the skilled boat makers who crafted them. There are still some working examples of the Galway Hooker in Kinvara's quaint harbour. There is great fishing in the area with Lough Mask and Lough Corrib close by, while Connemara National Park, home to the famous Connemara Pony and Kylemore Abbey are both within easy reach, providing great days out for all the family.

The owners of this cottage lived nearby and were most welcoming.Our family loved the cottage.though 5 of using 1 bathroom was a challenge.I missed a bath but facilities for everything else was fine.We are used to a rural existence but this might be a problem for some folk.
Our daughter,son in law and granddaughter loved the walks in the area,the empty beaches and the time to be together.Tracing family roots in Galway was an added bonus especially when we found a distant relative.
We all enjoyed the many nice places to have meals,visits to places of interest and towns and the lovely Irish people and the landscape inspired me to paint
