ABOUT THE AREA
Ardrahan is a village in County Galway, ireland. Richard de Burgo conquered Galway in 1236 and granted the land to Maurice Fitzgerald who built the castle whose ruins still stand today. The churchyard wall contains the remains of a round tower, which suggests that a monastic community may have existed on the site before the castle was built.
The most noteworthy attraction in Ardrahan is Tulira Castle, once owned by playwright and independence activist Edward Martyn. Tulira Castle was for a long time owned by Galway County Council but was bought in 2015 by CarTrawler owner Niall Turley for €5.8 million.
The church at Labane, Ardrahan, which was the parish church of Joe Roche, has several stained-glass windows by Alfred E. Child, Ethel Rhind and Michael Healy.
Ardrahan is on the R458. Ardrahan railway station opened on 15 September 1869, was closed to passenger traffic on 5 April 1976 and finally closed on 11 June 1983. A new railway station has opened as part of phase one of the reopening of the Western Rail Corridor between Ennis and Athenry.
WiDER GALWAY AREA
Arty, bohemian Galway (Gaillimh) is one of ireland’s most engaging cities. Brightly painted pubs heave with live music, while restaurants and cafes offer front-row seats for observing buskers and street theatre. Remnants of the medieval town walls lie between shops selling handcrafted Claddagh rings, books and musical instruments, bridges arch over the salmon-stuffed River Corrib, and a long promenade leads to the seaside suburb of Salthill, on Galway Bay, the source of the area’s famous oysters.
While it’s steeped in history, the city buzzes with a contemporary vibe, thanks in part to students, who make up around a fifth of the population. its energy and creativity have seen it designated a European Capital of Culture for 2020.
