Newtown Castle is a beautifully restored 16th century cylindrical fortified tower house - one of only few such buildings in Ireland. Having lain derelict for many years, the castle's restoration began in 1994, completed in time for the opening of the Burren College of Art in August of that year.
Newtown Castle is once again a vibrant building in daily use, central to the artistic, cultural and educational life of the Burren.
It is open free of charge to the public on week days.
Newtown Castle is also available for wedding ceremonies, small private functions or company events.
