Galway Walking Tour, Blakes Castle

Blakes castle was one of the tower houses that guarded the entrances to the city. In Blakes castle ships captains had their ships papers checked and waited to meet the Galway traders with whom trade was being done. Later on, after the Cromwellian and Williamite Wars Blakes Castle was used as Galway's Prison. One of the first prisoners was one of the Blake family who commanded the Galway garrison in 1692.
