Roundstone is a coastal village of Galway County in Western Ireland with Clifden Town to its North. It is among Connemara’s oldest fishing villages built by Alexander Nimmo, a Scottish engineer, in the 1820s. The village is popular for its dazzling coastal beauty which has been an inspiration for artists. The Roundstone Art Week is a yearly celebration of their youth and environment. Traditional Irish Nights offer music and dance festivals weekly every July and August.
To its south are Gurteen and Dogs Bay beaches, featuring pure white sand made from crushed shells and clear blue waters, best for water sports.
