    Mr Graham

    “2a Glynsk is a clean and well equipped cottage for up to 8 pers that provides a good base for touring Connemara.”

    An open peat fire supplements the effective electrical heating. There is a good bar/ restaurant adjacent, for a little local flavour. Only negative comment is that the double mattresses were tired , and need replacement. Also a couple of light bulbs needed changing. Would book cottage again.

About the location


Clifden 23 miles; Galway 49 miles.

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. There are still some working examples of the 'Galway Hooker' moored at Mweenish Island and Cashel Bay and 'hooker' regattas are held throughout July and August. There is great fishing in the area with many working piers providing an ideal place for lobster, crab and mackerel fishing, 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.
