Very unique castle, highly recommended if you stay in the area. Our guide was a young boy that explained very well the history of the castle.

We didn't expect to find such a gem in what we thought was a suburb of Galway. Our hosts at Oranmore Lodge had directed us there and we were not disappointed.

Saw the castle from Tesco's. Walked to the Aldi car park to get a good photo of the castle. Didn't know you could visit the castle.

My family knew the resident owner of this castle and it sits in a prime position on the water in Oranmore. You can still get a lovely photo especially in evening light with careful cropping to cut out lamp posts and Tesco. Planners why did...More

Great trek in Oranmore and you find the castle at a beautiful spot overlooking the bay. Shops are nearby to buy a few bits for a picnic and make a few hours of it.

It is easy to find and easy enough to walk to from town. Good opportunity to take photos. Suggest walking to it as parking is difficult.

The castle was closed when we were there in November but it certainly made for a few lovely photos and the fresh sea air was terrific.

My hobby is photographing castles in Ireland so I visited Oranmore Castle just to get a few shots of it. I wasn't interested in going inside so, for what I wanted, it suited me just fine. It is a lovely castle, very photogenic.

This castle is behind supermarkets, and on the shoreline. Gate was padlocked and a note about opening times. If the family are restoring it, which must be a huge expense, it could be opened more frequently. Disappointed I'd wasted time driving to find it.
