Menlo Castle, County Galway

And then night fell and there you were
in the space that sits between
the silky stitches that link reality
the fabric of my dreams.
— Claire Loader

Sitting silently on the banks of the River Corrib, Menlo Castle is a twilight haven only a stone’s throw from the city of Galway. Best visited in the quiet hours of a summer evening, the tranquil setting is nothing but breathtaking, the sad monument watching from the trees the only hint of her tragic history.
