Castlebar is centrally located in an area rich in heritage, history, scenery and tradition and is the perfect base from which to explore one of the few unspoilt areas of Western Europe. Castlebar began as a settlement around a castle built by the de Barra (Barry) family. It hosted events (including the 1798 French and Irish rebellion - the races of Castlebar) that moulded the shape of things to come, not alone in Castlebar but in Ireland itself. Castlebar also offers a great variety of activities and exciting locations - indoor and outdoor. There is plenty of lively night-time entertainment and Castlebar is a superb location for outdoor pursuits including planned walking routes and it is surrounded by some of the best fishing lakes and rivers in the West
