Menlo Castle is a 16th Century castle situated on the bank of the River Corrib in Co. Galway. It was built in 1569 and was home to the Blake family. The ruins still exist today close to the NUI Galway campus.
On 26 July 1910 while Sir Valentine (14th baronet) and Lady Blake were away in Dublin, a fire broke out in the room of their disabled daughter Eleanor. The castle was destroyed and her body was never found. She is presumed to have died in the fire.
Sir Ulick Blake (16th baronet) inherited the ruin. He was found dead in his car some years later.
