Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Ballynahinch or Ballinahinch is situated close to Recess in County Galway in the West of Ireland, on the road from Recess to Roundstone. It also lies on the route of the former railway line from Galway city to Clifden. The name comes from the Irish Baile na hInse meaning settlement of the island. Ballynahinch Castle, built in the 17th century for the Martyn family, one of whose better known members was 'Humanity Dick' founder of the RSPCA, has been used as a hotel since 1946. The Castle was originally built in about 1684 and is today well known as a high-end hotel with a focus on fly fishing for salmon.show more
