Carna

Carna is a village and townland in Connemara, Co Galway. It is located in the heart of the Gaeltacht area, around 50km west of Galway City. Carna is a small area, but it has a large enough influence on the surrounding areas in Connemara as it contains a Garda station, a Health Centre including a Rapid Response Ambulance and it also houses an Irish Coastguard lifeboat. Carna is located close to the village of Cill Chiarain and they share the peninsula locally called Iorras Aithneach. The National University of Ireland, Galway, has an Irish-language and educational centre (Áras Shorcha Ní Ghuairim) in Roisín na Mainiach, near Carna. It also operates a marine biology station Martin Ryan Institute in Maínis and an atmospheric research station at Mace Head, Carna, which is run by the university's experimental physics department. There is a water reservoir in Carna that provides West Connemara including Roundstone with fresh water. A bus is also based in Carna that brings passengers between Carna and Galway City picking up passengers along the N59. Local amenities include a hotel, several B&Bs, a GAA club, an athletics club, three shops, a post office, a café and a pub.
