Casla (Costello or Costelloe) is a Gaeltacht village between Indreabhán (Inverin) and An Cheathrú Rua (Carraroe) in western County Galway, Ireland. It lies on the R336 road beside Clynagh Bay. Casla is the headquarters of RTÉ Raidió na Gaeltachta. Casla means "(twisting) creek" or "inlet from the sea" in Irish.
