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.

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.
