Come West Along the Road

Bearna, Co. Galway

In Bearna you find vestiges of the past. In the Gaeltacht, it is the true gateway to the rugged beauty and grandeur of the Gaelic principality of Connemara. From its small working harbour to its cosy pubs and award winning restaurants, you can discover the essence of Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way.

It is a place to unwind and forget the stresses and strains of modern life. It is a place to raise a family and live your best life, while enjoying its ocean-hewn coastline and beaches. Despite this splendid isolation, you are only a short trip to and from Ireland’s cultural and culinary capital, Galway. In its medieval streets you can find all the fun and frivolity of its many festivals. On sunny days the happy mood is infectious, while on rainy days you can retreat into its shops, bars and restaurants to watch the world go by!

An Maolán,

All you need is right on your doorstep...
