We had this on our GPS and got to where it was supposed to be. It seemed we had to park at the road and walk down. But the trail we took ended at a graveyard. We could see the castle a ways beyond the...More

Gleninagh is not a secret and for good reason. It is one of the better preserved Irish ruins on a large scale and set on 2 beautiful lakes. It is well designed to meet the tourist needs with some paved walks around the lower lake...More

This place is difficult to find as it's down a rough track on the north side of the R477 between Ballyvaughan and Fanore. You will think you have gone the wrong way but when you reach the end of the track it's obvious that you...More

Of all the castles I've seen in Ireland from two countrywide road trips, this is one of my favorites. It's in a stunning location, between The Burren and Galway Bay. This is one of the most beautiful spots in Ireland.

This was one of the coolest experiences we had in Ireland, and I'm so glad I got the suggestion to look for it before we went. You turn off of the road onto a one lane dirt road and think "hmm this can't be right"....More

Glenaigh is down a small lane - too small for cars the last time I was there - but is lovely to walk down to the sea from the coast road. Although the castle is likely the most interesting and well known, there are also...More
