Oranmore Castle is a castle in Oranmore, County Galway, in Ireland.
Oranmore Castle was most likely built some time around the 15th century, possibly on top of an older castle. The Clanricardes, a notable family from Galway, used it as a stronghold. In March 1642 the town, Oranmore, joined Confederate Ireland in a rebellion, against which the owners of the castle, the Marquess and the fifth Earl Clanricarde, held out. Clanricarde supplied the Fort of Galway from the sea until 1643, when, without the Marquess's sanction, Captain Willoughby Governor of Galway surrendered.

My wife, kids and I like it! We were lucky as we arrived there around 12:00 just in time for a visit inside it ! $6 per person but kids have discount ($3) ... inside the castle we can see how was to live there. Nice, fast and good !

It's a home and strikes a balance between being a tourist attraction and that. Nice though

It was closed while we were there. We still went around the outside and took some pictures. Parking was difficult. It does have some beautiful views
