Castle Ellen is about as basic as it gets (with the exception of our recently installed Wifi and an electric shower) :-). No mod cons ! Not far from how it was in 1890 with the exception of an electric shower. If you are looking for a most unusual experience, Castle Ellen will deliver this and much more.

The space
Castle Ellen is most unusual and is just located 25mins from Galway City. It proudly boasts no mod cons. Dating back to 1810, when it was built by the Lambert family, Castle Ellen is situated on 33 acres of land, 13.5 miles from Galway City and 2.5 miles from Athenry.
The house is located in a beautiful woodland setting. It is a haven of tranquility, where one can enjoy a sense of timelessness and connection to nature.

The aim of the proprietor, Mr Michael Keaney, is to maintain the house as close as possible to the way it was at the end of the 19th century. Michael bought Castle Ellen in 1974, when it was in an advanced state of disrepair. He has since made super-human efforts to restore it to some of its former glory, and under his auspices the house has been home to many artists, sculptors, and poets, and provides an oasis of calm and reflection in the busy modern world.
