Inverin (Irish: Indreabhán, its official name, meaning "mouth of the river")[1][2] is a Gaeltacht village between An Spidéal and Casla in County Galway, Ireland. Inverin is more strongly Irish-speaking than An Spidéal, partly due to fewer commuters from Galway living there.[citation needed] There are a number of Irish-language summer colleges in the area, most notably Coláiste Lurgan and Coláiste Uí Chadhain. The actual village of Inverin is the area between Baile na hAbhann and Na Mine.

Inverin is reached from the city of Galway on the R336 road. It is served by Bus Éireann route 424 from Galway.


Cumann Forbartha Chois Fharraige is the very active local development association that was first founded in 1966[3]. There is a Gaelic Athletic Association club, CLG Mhícheál Breathnach, which holds a football tournament every year on St. Stephen's Day. The area has its own Irish language book club, Club Leabhar Chois Fharraige[4], that meets monthly in one of the local pubs, Tigh Mholly.

Aer Arann Islands is headquartered at Aerfort Chonamara, An Caisleán, Na Mine, Indreabhán.[5]
