The village of Rounstone lies on the western arm of Betraghboy bay in Connemara, Co Galway, 48 miles north west of Galway city. The village is beautifully set on one of the most spectacular coastal drives in Europe overlooking the Atlantic at the foot of Errisbeg mountain.

The village was founded in the mid 1820’s by the celebrated Scottish engineer Alexander Nimmo who, as engineer for the Western District, built houses, roads and harbours throughout the West of Ireland. In 1835 a Franciscan Monastery was established in Roundstone and by the 1840’s 75 houses had been built and the village supported an active fishing industry and a population of some 400 people. The village derives its name from the Irish “Cloch Na Ron” or Rock of the Seals
