All along the road, you will se these lovely stone walls with gates leading to the greenest of fields. If you are going to go wander in the fields, please ensure that you close the gates behind you again.
Now if this is not extremely clever, then I do not know. As you come from the castle you will notice this little ruin where the road splits, and they have turned it into a "bilboard". Absolutely fab!!!
I was mightily impressed by this place in the summer of 2005. We were going to eat at the hotel, but this place was a little cheaper, more informal, and had a cracking view out over Galway bay.
It used to be a good pub with a rather nice restaurant attached. these days it is other way round. you can take you meal in the semi-formal restaurant, although i found the bar area a far more convivial area to enjoy some very good quality, but unpretentious food.
Favorite Dish: The steaks, made from prime irish beef, were some of the best i have eaten in a long,long time
