Oranmore Village

The hotel is located just on the outskirts of Oranmore village, a small community nestled in the heart of Galway Bay. Just a short stroll through the streets of the village will lead you to the historic Norman Oranmore Castle. Many local attractions are dotted around this part of Galway such as Coole Park, home to Lady Gregory and inspiration to poet William Butler Yeats and just outside the village you’ll find Rinville Park, where there are spectacular views of the bay to behold and scenic meandering pathways. If it’s a water based activity you had in mind, then look no further than the Corrib Princess where you can while away an evening taking in some breath taking scenery around Galway Bay.

Wild Atlantic Way

Given our location, we are the perfect stop off point on your trek around the Wild Atlantic Way. This is the longest scenic tour in the world stretching an amazing 2500 kilometres along the ruggedly beautiful west coast of Ireland, with Oranmore being located just about half way on the route.
With the village located in Galway Bay and important landmarks such as the Burren, Salthill and Ballyvaughan all within driving distance, Maldron Hotel Oranmore is the ideal place to set up your base for exploring this section of the Wild Atlantic Way.
