Bearna Gaa is a Gaelic Athletic Association club based in Barna, County Galway, Ireland. The club is a member of the Galway GAA. The club was merged with Spiddal at U16,U18 and U21 during the 1990s before reverting to its old form again in 2001.

Barna were promoted to Senior Level for the first time in 1972 and have competed in the Galway Senior Club Football Championship over the years.
