A little bit about Carraroe -
Carraroe (An Cheathrú Rua) is situated on a peninsula 50 kilometers west of Galway city on the coast road ( R336). Carraroe is in the Connemara Gaeltacht and Irish (Gaelic) is the first language. It is 8 kms from Rossaveal (Ros a Mhíl) the ferry port for the Aran Islands so therefore it's an ideal base for visiting the islands or touring Connemara.

There are several small safe beaches locally, the most interesting is the Coral beach (Trá an Dóilín) which is made up of twig like fragments of lithothamnium and other seaweeds that have stiffened. It's also a very popular diving location.

There are many interesting walks you can take in the area and as Carraroe is a peninsula it's possible to take many loops around the peninsula. The beach also has a blue flag from E.U..

The traditional sailing boats - the Hooker, Gleoiteog and Pucan are still to be seen sailing in the bay and there are several regattas held during the summer. One of the largest festivals - Féile an Dóilín is held in Carraroe over the first weekend in August. In olden times the larger boats were used to transport turf from the peat bogs of Connemara to the Aran Islands and Co. Clare.

As Irish is the main language in the area there are several courses held during the summer for second level students in the 2 Irish colleges. Students live with Irish speaking families during their 3-week stay at the courses. An tAcadamh - is part of the Irish Department of National University of Ireland Galway. Courses are held there for adults, third level students and foreigners.
