What to expect?

Kinvara is a small fishing village located south of the Bay of Galway. Its harbour and colourful houses make it a village full of charm, whose tranquillity is matched only by its picturesque charm. Built at the foot of the Burren Mountains, Kinvara lives according to the tides and the Irish seasons. Its fishermen spend their days aboard hookers (small sailing boats used for centuries by the inhabitants of County Galway), while during this time, the Dunguaire Castle silently dominates the village’s harbour .

Visit Kinvara

A highly touristic fishing village!

Its colourful houses and its streets are few, but the few shops give the village all its dynamism. Pass by its Pubs: you will find a warm atmosphere in a picturesque setting! There is also a music shop and a few handicraft workshops… Don’t hesitate to push the door: people are welcoming and love the contact with tourists!

Don’t miss the small fishing port of Kinvara either: the walk is pleasant, and offers you a glimpse of the life of the fishermen of the village. It is not rare to come across a few hookers along the quay, faithful Galway sailboats used by local sailors. The view over the bay is breathtaking on a clear day.
