Inverin (Irish: Indreabhán, its official name, meaning "mouth of the river")[1][2] is a Gaeltacht village between Spiddal and Costello in County Galway, Ireland. There are Irish-language summer colleges in the area, most notably Coláiste Lurgan and Coláiste Uí Chadhain. The actual village of Inverin is the area between Ballynahown and Minna.

The village is on the R336 road and is served by the 424 Bus Éireann route from Galway.[3]

Cumann Forbartha Chois Fharraige is a local development association founded in 1966.[4] The Gaelic Athletic Association club, Cumann Lúthchleas Gael Mhícheál Breathnach, holds a football tournament every year on Saint Stephen's Day. An Irish language book club in the village, Club Leabhar Chois Fharraige,[5][6] meets monthly.

The airline Aer Arann Islands is headquartered at Connemara Airport near the village.[7]
