Claregalway Castle

Living History

Castle Tours:

The great hall, Claregalway castle

The steep spiral stairs are worth the effort for views over the Galway countryside and the River Clare slipping past the castle walls. Marvel at the woodwork of the great hall roof and the stonework that has stood against time, wars, floods and strife for nearly 600 years.

Fireplace in the Farm house
