The Port of Kinvara

Kinvara and its port - Keith Ewing - cc

If you like small authentic fishing ports, then we advise you to go to Kinvara to enjoy the marine and iodine atmosphere there. The Kinvara harbour offers you small fishing boats, Galway hookers (traditional boats of the region), and an incredible sense of contact when it comes to being approached by these dear inhabitants!

A port facing the Bay of Galway

Between quays, sailboats and fishing boats, Kinvara harbour is a small, tidy port where locals come and go. Here you will find freshly caught fish for sale, as well as fishermen in search of good-natured conversation. Don’t hesitate to go there in the morning, when the boats bring their cargoes of fish back to the quay: the spectacle is really worth the detour!

Kinvara harbour is both lively and quiet. Feel free to stop by the Yellow Front Pub facing the harbour. From here you can watch the ships coming and going in the Bay of Galway, and enjoy a great view of the Dunguaire Castle. A very busy area in the summer but really very pleasant…
