Raising the bar for entertainment – so much to do in our town Castlebar

We’re proud of our hometown at Lough Lannagh. We’re right in Castlebar, Co. Mayo and so many of our guests from both our B&B and self-catering accommodation just love to roam around the town for some shopping, culture, history and more. Castlebar has so much to offer. From national museums to two top class theatres as well as a wide range of pubs and restaurants, you will not be short of anything to do during your stay here. It’s a busy town that now has a third level campus and is well served by railway and many bus routes too.

The modern town grew up as a settlement around the de Barry castle, which was built by a Norman adventurer in 1235 and gives the town its name. The castle was located at the end of Castle Street, where the town river is thought to have originally flowed. Like many an Irish town dating from this period, armed conflict has been a big part our town’s historical heritage. French forces under the command of General Humbert routed the English garrison in the town during the failed Irish Rebellion of 1798, which was so comprehensive it would later be known as “The Races of Castlebar”.

We’re glad to say modern day Castlebar is a lot less bloody thankfully but the story of our town’s history is everywhere. Just outside the town, the National Museum of country life is focused on ordinary life from the mid-19th century to the mid-20th century, with much of the material coming from rural Ireland in the 1930s. There are displays on the home, the natural environment, communities and forces for change.

Castlebar does love its culture alright. The Linenhall theatre exhibits visual art throughout the year, and hosts live drama and music performances. It also organises an annual children’s arts festival called Roola Boola which is one festival that has always held a specula place in our hearts. The Royal Theatre and Event Centre has a bigger capacity and hosts larger-scale productions and popular music concerts. Usually lots of comedy too.

Or if you’d just like to take it easy, Castlebar is a brilliant shopping town and you’ll find all the major brands in many of its wide variety of shops,. You’ll also see lots of craft products in the several artisan shops dotted around the town. Add in playgrounds, several sporting clubs and a bowling alley and cinema too and you get the picture. Castlebar is alive and well and one blog does not do it justice!

When you stay with us at Lough Lannagh, just ask us on the front desk and we’re more than happy to talk about our hometown, where to go and what to do….better still…BOOK NOW
