Interaction with guests
I love to garden and I love to walk. If you’d like to join me for a walk around the village, I can show you all the landmarks and hidden history of Claregalway. If we’re lucky we might meet some local characters.
An archaeological dig in 2011 revealed that a settlement in Claregalway (around the site of the Castle) was the beginning of urbanisation in the county of Galway. It would appear that even a millennia ago, Claregalway was bustling with human activity. The famous Claregalway Friary—the first Franciscan Friary in Connacht—was built in the early 13th century, establishing Claregalway as a religious hub for east Galway. The beautifully restored Claregalway Castle has withstood many battles over the centuries, helped by its strategic position on a curve in the River Clare. Boasting a recently refurbished western face, the magnificent Nine Arches no longer bridge the river, but remain an attractive landmark in Claregalway village.
There are a few buses a day going to the City but you’d be better off with your own transport. I can also give you a lift if you let me know in advance. There’s room for about four cars in the front driveway and more out back if required.
