    Newtown Castle

    Just down the road to Ballyvaughan, to the right of the N67 as you head toward Lisdoonvarna, you will find this castle tower. Unusual for its type, in that it starts square at its base and devolves into a circular pillar of stonework.

    The tower sits up slightly higher than the surrounding land, on a hillock that gives a good view over Ballyvahaughn and Galway Bay.

    It wasn’t open when we visited but there is a café and toilets open to the public. Opening times are Easter – October daily 10am – 6pm.
