Menlo Castle | Abandoned Castle In Ireland

Menlo Castle is also known as Galway castle is located just outside of Galway, Ireland, on the banks of the Corrib River, whose abandonment remains a mystery. It is a picturesque landmark of the area, visible from the passage of the river, although nature has fully understood it to the point where it is lost in the landscape.

Galway castle


Menlo Ireland | The 16th-century palace was home to the Blake family, the English nobility who lived in the Menlo estate (also known as the Blake Castle) from 1569 until a fire destroyed the palace in 1910, sadly taking the life of Blake's disabled daughter, Eleanor, whose body was never found.

Abandoned castle in Ireland


Abandoned Irish castles — Today, the vegetation is covered with green vines climbing the stone walls, indicating how long it has been abandoned. The only building not covered by nature is the ruins of a small stone hut just before you reach your palace. Tourists come here to see this romantic attraction on the banks of the river. Many locals arrange a picnic here, although they say it is better to leave the place before it gets dark, as the ruins may look strange, mourning your fate.
