  • Well.. during our visit I had to ask in order to find it...we passed by several times but never "noticed the castle" ( we are observers) but only the bank. 
  • most people do not get the option to keep or take out there funds in a real castle but here is your chance.what ever people say about banks AIB plc must be complimented on preserving this icon buildin...  more »
  • Strolling through the downtown streets, in Shop street, the shopping street, is this castle which is actually a fortified House. The most powerful of the Lynch family belonged to 14 tribes that ruled the city. Built of stone in the 14th century, this castle has a façade decorated with sculptures and family crests Lynch and King Henry VII. Today it houses a Bank and in the lobby you can see a 17th century fireplace. Worth a visit, too, because he is regarded as one of the most beautiful castles of Ireland citizens.

  • It is now an AIB Bank. You can see the building exterior anytime and some of the interior when the bank is open. Not bad, but not really distinctive enough to go out of your way. If you're exploring the city center you'll likely run across it.
  • Nice building to walk past but almost every aib has that clean stone look anyway.
  • Interesting site to visit while in galway
  • Its a bank nice to look at.
  • Worth a look, nothing special.
