Knocknacarra is a coastal settlement that enjoys a beautiful location on the north shore of Galway Bay, just a short distance west of Galway city. It makes for a great holiday destination, giving visitors equal opportunities for relaxing and exploring. In and around Knocknacarra, outdoor activities range from water-based sports such as fishing, swimming and sailing to popular countryside pursuits including horse-riding and hiking. Golfers will enjoy the fine course at Galway Golf Club, Salthill, while sightseers may head in the same direction to stroll along Salthill's long promenade, admiring the famous, romantic bay which is overlooked by distant mountains. For families, the silver sands of Salthill and Barna promise hours of fun just a short drive from Knocknacarra. Most visitors will also want to set aside some time for a trip to Galway city - a wonderful blend of fun, tradition, music, arts, crafts, entertainment, eating, drinking and shopping. Knocknacarra also makes an ideal base from which to tour Ireland's unforgettable Atlantic coast, the breath-taking wild mountain scenery of Connemara or the historic Aran Islands. Further south, in County Clare, the magnificent limestone landscapes of The Burren, a dramatic upland, and the imposing Cliffs of Moher are well worth making room for in any itinerary.
