Árd na Mara contains 27 homes for older people and those with special needs, as well as a communtiy building that is available to all residents. This is a well maintained estate by residents who meet each month for “coffee mornings”. Currently the community building hosts Tai Chi and a series of Health and Nutrition Workshops. The estate recently hosted the Galway Age Friendly “Active Listening Consultation Workshop” where sixty people participated.
