May 26 - May 27

The Lough Cutra Castle Triathlon - Race Connections

The Lough Cutra Castle Triathlon

This first race of the season sets the scene for a competitive and fun series, hosted within the beautiful grounds and surrounding area of stunning South Galway. What’s more, the race coincides with a Bank Holiday in the UK and it is also the first weekend of the UK school half term, making it an ideal break for sporty families.

All of the races at Lough Cutra Castle kick-off by launching into an open-water swim in the lake, transitioning into a bike route which circumnavigates Lough Cutra itself. The half iron gauntlet cycle takes in the beautiful Burren national park. The event offers not only a chance to race but a festival atmosphere with live music, dancing, children’s entertainment, retailers and food.

About Lough Cutra Castle
The countryside surrounding Lough Cutra Castle contains evidence of a history dating back to the Irish-Celtic mythology of the Tuatha Dé Danaan.

Old churches, cells and monasteries are prolific in the area, with some of the islands on the lake containing the remnants of stone altars.

The history of the actual estate can be traced back as far as 866 A.D. when the ruined church of Beagh was sacked by the Danes and war raged through the district for nearly 1,000 years.

The Castle itself was built during the Gothic revival period and is idyllically situated overlooking the Estate’s 1,000 acre lake (the largest privately owned lake in Europe), home to the open-water swim of the Lough Cutra Castle Triathlon.
