Explore An Spidéal
A Gaeltacht village by the sea, An Spidéal is also home to An Ceardlann craft village where local artists and creators make and sell their creations. See makers who are specialized in basket weaving, acrylic painting, stained glass, pottery, screen printing, weaving, Celtic jewelry, and then relax in Builín Blasta Cafe and Bakery. Visitors to an Spidéal are captivated by its beautiful setting; it’s long sandy beach, piers, and its promenade lined with benches to sit and enjoy the sunset. Lying 17km west of Galway city, an Spidéal is the gateway to Connemara’s Gaeltacht and is home to one of the discovery points of the ‘Wild Atlantic Way’, the 2,500km coastal journey along Ireland’s western seaboard.
