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.

This is a quick review, but more to come later when I can get in front of a real keyboard: This place is amazing. If you are looking to stay in a real castle, and not a theme-park style place, this is it. The little touches and the love that they have for this castle that was in ruins for centuries and rebuilt by hand is amazing. The place is very comfortable and quiet. Obe word to describe it is WOW! Will post pictures and more details later.
