Claregalway Castle   -   Claregalway
 
 
       
Claregalway Castle on the river Clare, another 15c Clanricard castle.

The massive square keep of a De Burgo Castle which figured in Norman Warfare with the O'Flaherty's.

The Barony of Clare had 33 castles at time of the 1585 survey. The 2 principal demesnes were Claregalway and Corofin.

Both protect major crossings of Clare river on road linking Galway city with North and East and share many similarities (portcullis revetment, box machioli on all 4 sides etc). A number of unusual features include portcullis shaft protecting entrance, surviving clues for structure of portcullis windlass, continuous corbelling to support first floor timbers, abundant evidence for internal partitioning.
