Carraroe is a lovely coastal village and derives its name from An Cheathrú Rua, the red quarter or the russet rocky land. It is a popular holiday area for Irish speakers being in the heart of the Connemara Gaeltacht and also attracts many visitors who come to appreciate the wonderful scenery in the area.

Several of the early Christian sites in the vicinity have been associated with the saints of Aran but the area appears to have been inhabited at an even earlier age by prehistoric people.
