SITUATION AND AMENITIES: Carraroe is a lovely coastal village and derives its name from An Cheathrú Rua, the red quarter or the russet rocky land. It is a popular holiday area for Irish speakers being in the heart of the Connemara Gaeltacht and also attracts many visitors who come to appreciate the wonderful scenery in the area. Carraroe is also the centre for the Irish language media. The main national Irish-language newspaper "Foinse" has it's head office in the village, the Irish language radio station, Raidio na Gaeltachta, is in nearby Casla (2 miles) and the Irish language TV station, TG4 is based in Baile na hAbhann (5 miles). Several of the early Christian sites in the vicinity have been associated with the saints of Aran but the area appears to have been inhabitated at an even earlier age by prehistoric people. There are many facilities including a church, schools, pubs, restaurants, Post Office and a supermarket.
Some of Ireland's most beautiful unspoiled beaches can be found in and around Carraroe with the Coral Strand, 'Trá an Dóilín' being the most famous with its fine coral. Rossaveal is just five miles away, the second largest fishing port on the western seaboard. Rossaveal also houses the terminal for ferries to the Aran Islands.
Galway Hookers (Húicéirí Na Gaillimhe) are a distinctive form of native Irish boat, and An Cheathrú Rua (Carraroe) is today probably the single most important centre for these boats. Every August bank holiday, An Cheathrú Rua hosts Féile an Dóilín, the largest Galway hooker festival in Ireland, and one of the largest maritime festivals in the country.
