Kilcolgan (Irish: Cill Cholgáin, meaning "Colgan's church"), is a village on the mouth of the Kilcolgan River at Dunkellin Bay in County Galway, Ireland. The N18 passes through the settlement, which lies between Gort and Clarinbridge. There are also two public houses, Donoghue's and Raftery's Rest (a public house where, supposedly, the bard Raftery once stayed).
