Newtown Castle & Burren College of Art

Newtown castle is a beautifully restored 16th Century tower house located beside the Burren College of Art, just outside the village of Ballyvaughan.

The Newtown nature trail, a 1,300m walk around The Burren, is adjacent to the castle.

The castle is open to the public May-September, 10 am - 5.30 pm, Monday-Friday

Set in the grounds of Newtown Castle is the Burren College of Art which opened in 1994. 

In global terms, its location alone is unsurpassed in terms of historical, archaeological, geological, cultural and botanical interest. In addition, the study programmes it provides have been designed to allow artists to work in a stimulating environment.
