Just on the outskirts of Galway, Ireland…there exists a large, sweeping castle that sits atop a beautiful, picturesque hill in the forest. This magical castle overlooks the majestic countryside and pristine water just filled to the brim with lily pads, snow-white swans, and tattered canoes.
Sound nice? Well, it was. Cannamara Castle would be the “fairytale castle” that I am referring to above. We figured since Ireland is the “land of castles” that we better visit at least one. Turns out…this was a good one to see. The castle itself is now an abbey but the grounds around the castle were something you could visit for days. For that reason, this will be a 3-part series so bear with me. Bon Ap!
