Merlin Park Castle
Merlin Park Castle, built for Turlough O'Connor, one of the last High Kings of Ireland has been home to many of the most significant Galway tribes. Son of Ruaidri, King of Connaught, Turlough was an extremely popular king with his people, so much so that he was known and still is, as Turlough the Great.

Merlin Park, formerly Doughiska, was an O'Connor castle of the 16th century.
Still in good condition, it was lived in to the mid-19th century.
