SITUATION AND AMENITIES:
Radharc na Farraige is a development of 12 luxury apartments in a Gaeltacht village know as Casla. Casla has a variety of shops, pubs and petrol station and also benefits from being on a main bus commuter route towards Galway and Carraroe. 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. Carraroe is also the centre for the Irish language media. The main national Irish-language newspaper "Foinse" has it`s head office in the village, the Irish language radio station, Raidio na Gaeltachta, is in nearby and the Irish language TV station, TG4 is based in Baile na hAbhann (5 miles). There are many facilities including a church, schools, pubs, restaurants, Post Office and a supermarket.
Some of Ireland`s most beautiful unspoiled beaches can be found in and around Carraroe with the Coral Strand, `Trá an Dóilín` being the most famous with its fine coral. Rossaveal is just five miles away, the second largest fishing port on the western seaboard. Rossaveal also houses the terminal for ferries to the Aran Islands.
Galway Hookers (Húicéirí Na Gaillimhe) are a distinctive form of native Irish boat, and An Cheathrú Rua (Carraroe) is today probably the single most important centre for these boats. Every August bank holiday, An Cheathrú Rua hosts Féile an Dóilín, the largest Galway hooker festival in Ireland, and one of the largest maritime festivals in the country.

Building Energy Ratings (BERs) give information on how to make your property more energy efficient and reduce your energy costs. All properties bought, sold or rented require an BER. BERs carry ratings that compare the current energy efficiency and estimated costs of energy use with potential figures that your property could achieve. Potential figures are calculated by estimating what the energy efficiency and energy costs could be if energy saving measures were put in place. The rating measures the energy efficiency of your home using a grade from ‘A’ to ‘G’. An ‘A’ rating is the most efficient, while ‘G’ is the least efficient. The average efficiency grade to date is ‘D’. All properties are measured using the same calculations, so you can compare the energy efficiency of different properties.
