Head to County Galway in Connacht Province in order to see the beauty of Clifden Castle for yourself. Located right on the coast in Western Ireland, Clifden Castle is directly across the entire island from Dublin Airport.
Thankfully, that just makes the drive a straight shot heading west and following the M4, the M6 and eventually the N59 that leads to Clifden Castle.
Built in John D'Arcy in the 18th century, Clifden Castle is a beautiful manor house located in Ireland's County Galway.
Although it was the region's most prestigious home for decades, by 1894 the manor hour was abandoned.
Tenants occupied the home, and today it is nothing more than a beautiful collection of ruins.
Since Clifden Castle is only accessible on foot, rather than by car, the ruins are free from crowds and a truly wonderful sight to behold.
It is probably obvious - at Irish Expressions, we love Irish castles! The Emerald Isle is dotted with hundreds of these incredible structures.
Sharing pictures and stories about them gives us a deeper sense of connection with Ireland, wherever in the world we happen to be!
We have captured the most amazing pictures and descriptions of Irish castles in an e-book we call "An Illustrated Guide to Irish Castles and Abbeys."
