Oranmore, Co. Galway

Oranmore (Irish: Órán Mór) is a suburban village on the outskirts of Galway City. Oranmore is rapidly becoming a part of Galway's commuter or suburban belt.

Dominated by a splendid 12th century castle, Oranmore is the gateway to Ireland's South West. It is a perfect spot from which to visit the Burren, Connemara, the Aran Islands, Galway City, and the Corrib and Lough Mask water systems. Its extra advantage is that Galway regional airport is right nearby, in neighbouring Carnmore.

Oranmore's olde worlde pubs are renowned for their impromptu music and dance sessions. Rinville Park, just outside the village, is an ideal family destination. The Galway Bay Sailing Club is located in Rinville, Oranmore.
