Plans for cultural exhibition space at Oranmore Castle

Planning permission is being sought from the county council for a cultural exhibition space in the gardens of Oranmore Castle.

The owner of the castle, Leonie Finn, is seeking approval to change the use of the existing garden structure to a cultural exhibition space.

The project would also involve a minor extension of the structure, as well as improvement works to what is already there.

Oranmore Castle once served as the Stronghold of Galway’s Clanricarde family in the 17th century.

After being abandoned for many decades, it was bought by Anita Leslie in 1947, who later passed it on to her daughter Leonie.

Located on the shores of Galway Bay, today it is used to host local arts, crafts, heritage, and cultural events, as well as being available for hire for private events.

Galway County Council is due to make a decision on this planning application by April 21.
