About Castlegar

The historic parish of Castlegar covered a large area from Menlo on the banks of Lough Corrib through in arc around the east side of present-day Galway City to the coast at Roscam.

Today, Castlegar village is a small area between the Tuam and Headford Roads. This neighbourhood map focuses on places on interest around this, not including places which are covered by either the Ballybane Industrial Estate Layout map (south west), or the Ballinfoyle / Bothar an Chóiste Neighbourhood map (to the north).
