The small, quiet village of Carna in the heart of the Irish-speaking area of Connemara Gaeltacht, is set on the shores of Galway Bay, overlooking Galway Harbour, in the scenic region of Connemara. Carna is noted for its traditional Irish music and singing, and music sessions are held weekly in the local pubs and hotel. For walkers, runners, cyclists and hillwalkers, the area provides opportunities unrivalled for their tranquillity and scenery. The quiet roads leading to Mweenish Island and the local coves are ideal for family cycling. Lying off the coast of Carna is St. MacDara's Island, a site of pilgrimage and mass held on 16th July each year. The famous 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.

“Fantastic little cottage with the sea litterally just across the road. Great view across to Roundstone and the mountains. The constantly changing tide brings different wildlife as well as scenery. we had a daily visit from an Irish Hare, robin, goldcrests, wren blackbird and magpie. Then we had occasional visits from a curlew,seal, wimbrel, and many other things without having to leave the cottage.Paddy and Brigid are very welcoming and the cottage is well appointed and a great place to stay whilst touring around Connemara. Be warned though that the whats on guide often tells you things are there when they might not be such as a Sunday market in Roundstone which doesn't actually happen in May but might happen in June. We loved the area but avoided Kylemore abbey because it is heaving with people being the one place the tourist coaches all go to. The Killary boat trip is a nice experience and the sky road is worth a look as long as you don't mind narrow roads. For anyone who loves the Quiet Man film there's a number of sites worth visiting in the area.Fantastic holiday in a lovely cottage”
