Local Attractions

Although Claregalway village has expanded substantially over the years, it still holds great respect & admiration for its culture & history, as is evident by the many historical sites located around the town. We at the Arches are very lucky to be surrounded by many of these sites, which can be viewed from different vantage points throughout the hotel.
 
 
Franciscan Abbey
Claregalway is home to the ruins of a Franciscan abbey built by John de Cogan in 1290. It was one of the most beautiful of its kind in the country. The church consists of nave, choir, north aisle and transept, surmounted by a graceful tower. The archers under the tower are particularly beautiful, as are the windows and arcades. The old castle near by, with its massive square tower, was built by the de Burghs.
