Garbally castle is located in the parish of Skehana, Co. Galway. It was built in the 15th or 16th century by Malachy O'Kelly. Initially the castle was destroyed by MacWilliam De Burgo in 1504, however Samuel Lewis (1832) notes that it was "partially destroyed by Cromwell" along with the nearby castle of Clooncureen in the 17th century.
The building is now in ruins with only the NE section remaining.
