The site is 88 km/55 miles west of Galway by road and the journey takes about 75 minutes. From Galway , take the N59, (the main road to Clifden). Approximately 1.5 km/1 mile past Recess, turn left for Carna. After passing through the village, take the third left turn, about 3km/2miles after the Carna Bay hotel. It´s signposted "Relig Mhairos" (sign is currently at ground level!) and is opposite a derelict building with boarded up windows. Follow this road almost all the way to the end (another 3 km/2 miles) where you will find the site on the right hand side. The cottage at the site entrance is normally unoccupied. Follow the road which leads to the shore labs; if there´s anyone on-site, they´ll usually be working in one of those buildings.

Note for trucks:
there is plenty of turning space at the shore labs
please CLOSE THE GATE on your way out
