Barna, Co. Galway

Barna (Irish: Bearna) is a village west of Galway city in County Galway. Once a satellite of Galway city, the village is now rapidly becoming one of its suburbs. Officially the village is regarded as Irish speaking and is therefore a constituent part of the regions of Ireland that make up "An Gaeltacht". However, because of its absorption into the city, it has become only recently, a mainly English speaking village. Nonetheless, Irish is still the main language of its western and northern hinterland and the village has now effectively become the gateway to the largest Irish speaking region in the country, Connemara.

Barna, a picturesque little spor with an excellent bathing beach, namely, the Silver strand. Spiddal, it is a charming little holiday resort with a fine sandy beach. Bathing, boating and shore fishing are attractions.
