Fodor's Review

Clifden Castle was built above the town in 1815 by John D'Arcy, the town's founder and High Sheriff of Galway, who wished to establish a center of law and order in what he saw as the lawless wilderness of Connemara. Before the founding of Clifden, the interior of Connemara was largely uninhabited, with most of its population clinging to the seashore.
