The small stone harbour of Kinvara (sometimes spelt Kinvarra) sits at the southeastern corner of Galway Bay, which accounts for its Irish name, Cinn Mhara: 'Head of the Sea'. Filled with vividly painted buildings, the charming village makes an excellent pit stop between Galway city and County Clare.
