From stately manor houses, to important industrial structures, to quaint homes of notable people; there are many interesting and historic buildings to be found throughout Galway which once played a significant role to life here and each with their own story to tell. Some of these buildings have since fallen to ruin or have been left uninhabited for some time while others may have become private residences or which still have an important role to play even today.
These often imposing and impressive structures on the landscape are quite a sight to behold and often come with extremely interesting history such as the importance of the building, to notable people such as playwrights, poets and more who may have lived there, to films and TV shows from the past which were shot there, to rumours of ghosts and hauntings!
There is a whole host of interesting buildings, both little and large, to be discovered in Galway. Below you will find a number of historic buildings through Galway, Connemara and the Aran Islands for you to explore and to rediscover their history and importance in society in times past.
