Discover & own the stories of the past, present and future in Castleconnell.


In this section, we will tell you how to get here, where to stay, where to eat and what to do in our beautiful village.


Whether you’re a visitor or a local, this section is all about enjoying everything Castleconnell has to offer. The village plays host to a number of festivals and events throughout the year catering to all ages, from classical concerts to regattas on the river. So, keep an eye out here to find out what’s going on. 

Here, you will also find information about the River Shannon, so important to the village and today designated as a Special Area of Conservation. The riverside information boards will tell you more about the history of the river and the local flora and fauna. The ferry carpark is well known as the place to feed the ducks and swans but if you continue along the riverside nature trail, you may also catch a glimpse of a grey heron or cormorant perching on the rocks by the footbridge.



An Caisleán is the parish journal of Castleconnell, Ahane and Montpelier, launched in 1997. From day one, its mission was to record events as they happened each year and to become a living history of the parish. Over the years, it has been eagerly awaited and enjoyed by locals, visitors and those living overseas.

In 2018, An Caisleán celebrated its 20th issue and here you will find a digital archive from 2008 to 2018. A new edition will be launched in 2022 and will continue to include photographs, historical articles and stories from today and from the past year. If you would like to share your stories, you can contribute here.

About The Castleconnell Action Network

Castleconnell Action Network (CAN) was set up following the creation of the Ahane, Castleconnell & Montpelier Community Plan 2019-2023 in conjunction with Ballyhoura Development CLG. Development and publication of the Plan was supported with a number of local public meetings and the setting up of a group comprising of interested volunteers from the meetings.  Our core activities are focused on the facilitation of communications, alignment and co-operation between all organisations within the Parish of Castleconnell, working towards a common goal of making it a better place to live, work and visit.
