| 10 Places to Stay

Carna is a place where visitors can live and breathe the traditional culture of County Galway while thrilling to its remote beauty. Set amid sensational scenery on the Atlantic shores of west Connemara, Carna is part of the Gaeltach region where the local people speak in Irish, their first language, and enjoy age-old entertainments such as currach racing, a currach being a small rowing craft constructed by the area's famed boat-makers. Nature-lovers will revel in the walks and drives available from Carna, with many a historic site to pause and investigate as they journey through areas of mountains, lakes and bogland or along the coastline with its islands, bays, rugged cliffs and golden beaches. Carna is close to the Connemara National Park where many miles of breathtaking landscapes are waiting to be discovered, and sports fans may enjoy all the usual countryside pursuits, from cycling and horse-riding to golf and angling, with lobster fishing a local speciality. Some attractions within driving distance that are well worth visiting include the three fascinating Aran Islands, the beaches, villages and clear waters of Inishbofin Island, which is also an important breeding area for birds, and the richly imposing and tranquil Kylemore Abbey and Garden.
