Carnacon (in Irish Ceathrú na gCon, meaning 'Quarter of the hounds') is a small picturesque village in south west Mayo, central to Castlebar, Ballinrobe, Claremorris and Balla.

The village has a church, a shop, a pub, a community centre and a vibrant modern National School.

Nearby Lough Carra is a limestone lake, approx 4,000 acres in area. This relatively shallow lake (maximum depth 60ft) is very popular for trout fishing.

Moorehall only a short distance away is the famed birthplace of writer George Moore and John Moore, first President of Connaught. For more information check out the history of the Moores of Moorehall.
