Most appear to be named after individuals, naturally named, Conway. I have also listed a few places (named for Conways) you might find interesting to visit.

In Ireland, Conway may be of Welsh or Irish origin. In the former case it derives from the fortified town of Conwy, from the river of the same name, which term is thought to mean ‘reedy’.
Descendants of settlers of the name are to be found in counties Kerry and Antrim, and elsewhere. The Irish origins of the name are manifold: it is the anglicised version of at least four separate names, including, in Co Sligo, O Conbhuidne, (‘yellowhound’), also anglicised ‘Conboy’; in Mayo O
Conmhachain, sometimes also given as ‘Convey’; in Munster Mac Conmhaigh, from condmhach, meaning ‘head-smashing’, also anglicised ‘Conoo’, and in Derry/Tyrone Mac Conmidhe (‘Hound of Meath’), which has also been rendered as ‘MacConomy’, ‘Conomy’ etc. The surname is now numerous throughout Ireland, with perhaps the largest single concentration in Co Mayo.
