The County Galway/County Clare region
“The city of the Tribes” is a coastal town sixteen miles from Annaghkeen and within easy driving distance should you need a “city fix” Although it has seen tremendous growth in the past few years it has never lost the charm, openness and character that attracts visitors year after year.
Stroll down the little medieval streets listening to the buskers or wander into one of the many pubs along Shop Street for a pint of stout and listen to the talented musicians who play traditional music almost every where you go.
Shopaholics are catered for too and there is a wealth of shops both large and small to look at. (we even have a Marks and Spencers now).
The Town of Headford (Ath Cinn)
The small town of Headford is located four miles from Annaghkeen. This would be the nearest place to get supplies. Here also is a branch of Bank of Ireland and ATM machines. Post Office, Supermarket, Garages and fishing tackle supplies. There are pubs and bars here, many of which have regular sessions of traditional Irish music.
Campbell's Tavern is a well known music venue and some surprisingly big names can turn up here.
Ross Errilly Friary is one of the best preserved 14th century Franciscan Friarys in Ireland and for those interested in Irelands long history well worth a look.
Annaghkeen itself is an ancient celtic site. With it's 12th century ruined castle (said to be the oldest example of a castle built entirely from undressed stone in Ireland) built by the De Burgo family to keep out the marauding O'Flaherty's from across the lough.
