Inverin (Irish: Indreabhán, its official name)[1][2] is a Gaeltacht village between Spiddal and Costelloe in County Galway, Ireland. Inverin is more strongly Irish-speaking than Spiddal, partly due to fewer commuters from Galway living there.[citation needed] There are a number of Irish-language summer colleges in the area, most notably Coláiste Lurgan and Coláiste Uí Chadhain. The actual village of Inverin is the area between Baile na hAbhann and Na Minna.

Inverin is reached from the city of Galway on the R336 road. It is served by Bus Éireann route 424 from Galway.

There is a Gaelic Athletic Association club which holds a football tournament every year on St. Stephen's Day.
