Life without compromise

Rinn na Mara is located in the beautiful seaside village of Kinvara, an integral stop on the Wild Atlantic Way and one of the most sought after locations in the West of Ireland. Kinvara is also regarded as the gateway to the Burren National Park in Co. Clare, an area of outstanding natural beauty. 

Visitors are immediately struck by Kinvara’s picturesque setting. A 16th century castle, Dunguaire Castle, is located on the edge of the shimmering Co Galway shoreline, a postcard scene like no other. Yet there’s no need to sacrifice convenience – as Galway City is just a 30 minute drive away. 

For families, Kinvara is the perfect location. Children can both learn and play in this peaceful community, as the village is home to a local childcare facility and to St Joseph’s National School, with Doorus National School and Northampton National School both in the immediate vicinity, and also in the village is a highly regarded secondary school, Seamount College. Sport is a large part of the community with GAA, soccer, athletics, horse-riding, gymnastics, sailing and fishing, being just some of the local sports available.

village has to offer

Take a Stroll to the market

Despite its peaceful appearance, Kinvara is a dynamic and bustling village, full of wonderful shops, cafés, bars and places to go. A vibrant farmer’s market is held weekly, complete with live music and delicious food, while a lively calendar of events includes two annual festivals and a sense that something is always happening. 

Take a trip to see some of the surrounding natural landscapes

Kinvara is convenient to many major roads, including the M18 and M6, which offer quick access to Galway City and other employment hubs, such as Ennis, Shannon and Limerick. Shannon Airport is a mere 40 minutes away. The village itself is on the scenic N67 road, a wonderful route along the coast linking renowned Co. Clare towns like Ballyvaughan, Lahinch and Lisdoonvarna with Galway City. A bus service that serves Galway city several times daily makes the commute even easier.
