Clifden Castle

Caislean an Clochán
County Galway

The ruins of Clifden Castle are surrounded by lush green hills above Clifden Bay. Through the entrance gate at the Upper Sky Road, you can reach the ruin in a 10 minutes stroll along a meadow-lined path. The path leads past ancient standing stones and through a peaceful landscape. Since the inside of the castle is closed and cannot be visited, the walk to the castle and back is the real highlight of a visit.
