Stay at the old Mill beside the Castle -a peaceful medieval gem on the banks of the river Clare in the village of Claregalway. Just 6 miles from Galway city centre on the N17 (Galway-Tuam) road, it is very close to local bus stop and restaurants. Ample parking.

The space

Claregalway Castle, built c 1420, was the principle castle of the Clanrickarde Burkes in what was once an ancient small kingdom called Magh Seola – and an archaeological paradise. Excavation has revealed elaborate fortifications and ancillary buildings. The award winning restoration is strongly evidence based and has helped revive traditional crafts.
Claregalway castle was the hub of a busy Borough town. The ‘Nuns field’ between castle and the beautiful Franciscan Abbey (founded 1240) was densely populated and accommodated an Hospital and Convent.
The Great Hall of the castle attests to a sophisticated lifestyle and was a haven for musicians and poets as much as a local centre of power and ceremony.
Ruinous following the Cromwellian Siege of Galway in 1653, it was rescued by current owner as a roofless tower in imminent danger of collapse.
Now a cultural, social and tourism resource. It hosts the Annual Galway Garden Festival and is a venue for music, theatre, summer schools, heritage events and conferences.

We loved the stay in the restored castle! The room was wonderful and the hosts were very helpful! It'll be interesting to see how this place continues to develop! A great Air BnB place! Galway is very close, which has great nightlife!

If I could give more than 5 stars I would. This place is definitely a labor of love and it shows in all the details! This was our absolute favorite part of our trip to Ireland and we will definitely be returning.

Linda and I want to thank Crystal, John, and Mike for what was the highlight of our trip. Everyone made us feel welcomed and using a play on words we were treated as "royalty" at the castle. The room was perfect. Clean, quiet, and comfortable. Decorated to the hilt but with all the modern conveniences. Crystal came out to meet us when we pulled in at 4:50 pm and welcome us with fresh cups of coffee (tea is just not my thing....from the States). John checked on us later to insure all was well. Mike spent a lot of time giving us a private tour of the castle the next morning. It just does not get any better than this. Thank you again for making this night at the castle memorial. Everything was perfect. May God bless you, John, and Mike.

A totally unique experience. Understand that this place is a work in progress. The rooms were well appointed and had incredible attention to detail. Note that the bed is a full and not a queen.
