The County Galway/County Clare region

Situated at the mouth of the River Corrib and upon the Western reaches of the Republic of Ireland is Galway City. Founded by Anglo-Norman settlers in the 12th century and incorporated as a city in 1484, the city is as rich in heritage as it is in modern attractions.

Often referred to as the 'Capital of the West', Galway attracts visitors every year to the many lively festivals hosted by the town. A few of the biggest attractions are the Galway Film Fleadh, the Galway Arts Festival, the Galway Races and the Oyster Festival.


Ballyvaughan is a village and small port on the southern shores of Galway Bay is a convenient centre for exploring the fascinating surrounding countryside. It also has a lot to offer the visitor in its own right: sea fishing, pubs, restaurants, craft workshops.

From a medieval settlement in the 19th century Ballyvaughan grew round its harbour, built in 1829 for fishery purposes: imports of turf from Galway had become essential, while local exports - grain, bacon and vegetables - were also transported by sea. Steamers brought visitors from Galway, laying the foundation for a thriving tourism trade. Commercial use of the harbour has declined in recent years and it is now used for pleasure craft.

Ballyvaughan itself is almost enclosed by rocky lagoon-type barriers of land and rock: the Rinn, to the west and a farther, more broken extension from Bishop’s Quarter to the east. There are several small islands of which Muckinish is one. Others include Black Island, Gall Island, Green Island and several nameless lumps of land and rock encompassed by this Ballyvaughan reef. The bay extends eastwards from Finvarra Point, past Scanlan’s Island, Muckinish Island, Muckinish Bay and the Pouldoody oyster beds before turning south through Poulnaclogh Bay, into Pouldoody Bay and finishing at Bell Harbour.
