  • It is not at all a castle. It is rather a robust residence that was once home to one of the families most powerful of Galway, the Lynch. It is now the headquarters of a bank. Most notable is the façade with its windows, shields, and gargoyles.

  • A welcome landmark that serves as a guide for anyone who might need help navigating around central Galway. The castle itself is now useful as a bank with associated ATMs. The castle has significant historical roots and is rich with the history of Galway. It is one of two surviving castles from the rich merchant families that once governed Galway. You’ll find by observing key parts of the castle, many features that pay homage to the Lynch family.
  • Free! I'm all about the free historical and tourist sites and this one is an easy spot. It's a bank so you can go in if you want but you really only need to see the outside. Read up on Lynch's castle via google first!
  • 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.
  • nice
