  • I wanted to visit this place, but I was staying at Corrib Village and didn't have a car or bike. Would have been an hour walking on the edge of mildly busy streets - probably would not have been worth...  more »
  • There are no signs showing you the directions, I think I put Parklane in the GPS which got us pretty close. When we reached the gate it was locked. Quite disappointing.  more »
  • This was strictly a challenge to find & to get a photo. The adventure here was in accomplishing it. It is really not too different from hundreds of other square tower castles, scattered along the coun...  more »

  • Fantastic ruins. You have to hop the gate to get there, but there is not a "no trespassing" sign so that's what we did. About 150 meters past the gate.
  • Nice view on Castle. But go to see this castel from university side river view.
  • Lovely view of Castle from other side of the river. Dangan side. Great for picnics. Beautiful views
  • An interesting trip back in time. Although in ruins, it was an imposing castle in it's time. Built on the edge of the River Corrib, it has fantastic views across the River of neighbouring Dangan. Well worth a look. Will make for a good hiking adventure.
  • This is a pretty castle. However, the google walking directions are on the wrong side of the river, inaccessible to the castle.

Where to stay in Galway

Stay at the center of Ireland's "Most Irish City," Galway City, by booking a hotel or hostel near Eyre Square, from which all city sights are walkable. If you prefer accommodation with more character, stay at a charming guesthouse or bed and breakfast just outside of the center, or look for lodging in the city's Latin Quarter, a bohemian neighborhood lined with cafes, galleries, and pubs. If you want to explore Galway County, book accommodations in the city, since it's a tourism and transportation hub on the West Coast. If you prefer the quiet countryside, seek out small, family-owned guesthouses on the Aran Islands or a cottage on the Connemara Peninsula.
