Kilcolgan Castle
Kilcolgan Castle is located on the banks of the Kilcolgan river, over-looking Galway Bay. The castle which dates from the 11th Century was rebuilt by the St. George Family in the late 18th Century. It has been extensively but sensitively refurbished by the late Hon. W.N. Gustafson von Hillerstamm and now hosted by his daughter Karen.

Tyrone House Kilcolgan County Galway Ireland

Tyrone House
Located near Kilcolgan in County Galway, this great ruined house with its ornamental stone facade stands out in order to be seen on the landscape. Built in 1779 for Christopher St. George, it lay derelict for some years in the 19th and early 20th centuries, it was burned down by locals in 1921 when the house was rumoured to be a base for the Black & Tan army during the War of Independence.
A very small amount of stucco work remains intact in the ruins and the overall mood of the house is one of forlorn emptiness.
