Woodlawn is situated between the main road and rail networks which traverse East-West, is 10 miles from Ballinasloe and approximately 30 miles from Galway City. Woodlawn applies to a wide area, of which Woodlawn Railway Station and Post Office are the central points.

The landscape is a blend of woodland, bog and pasture, which give a varied texture to the area.

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.
