New Inn


The village of New Inn is situated in East Galway, 8 miles from Loughrea. The village is situated on the Eiscir Riada, a series of hills which stretched across the Great Plains of Ireland. There are many ancient forts or raths scattered throughout the parish, as exemplified by placenames such as Rathally and Rathglass. The townland of Grange, to the west of New Inn, contains a cemetry wherein lies the ruins of a Cistercian monastery. The Dunkellin River flows through New Inn and rises in nearby Woodlawn.

Welcome to the Galway Rural Development website. Galway Rural Development, through the programmes we administer, will continue to work along with other agencies, groups and individuals around the county to improve the quality of life for all citizens in our area. We especially wish to work with those who are most in need of assistance, to provide real opportunities for people to gain significant improvements for themselves and their communities throughout rural Galway.
