Built c. 1810 by Clifden’s founder John D’Arcy, Clifden Castle was once his residence. From Clifden, take the Sky Road until the gateway arch (2km on the left). Then, stroll along a winding trail (sometimes a bit mucky) edged with a series of five standing stones (only one is original). Soon you will be led downhill and turning right to discover a magnificent view of Clifden Bay and Clifden Castle.

Walking only – parking is not permitted.
