In the rolling green hills near Galway in the West of Ireland lies Cloghan Castle, one of Ireland’s truly great secret treasures and a distinction of itself.

Cloghan Castle has stood on these lands for over 800 years. Originally built as an out-post fortification in the 12th century, the castle was last inhabited by Hugh deBurgo in the 15th century, one of the most ancient and influential families in Irish history, a son of Walter de Burgo, Earl of Ulster.

For centuries the castle stood derelict, until a meticulous and historically accurate restoration programme was completed in the December of 1996. The castle now has accommodation for 14 people.

Cloghan Castle is now a unique self-catering destination providing an oasis of tranquillity and privacy. The castle boasts an unusual blend of old Norman personality and atmosphere, with the elegance and comforts expected by today's discerning guests.
