Eyrecourt is a village in Co Galway. Historically known as Donanaghta, it is located on the R356 regional road, 12km west of the Banagher bridge over the River Shannon. Eyrecourt Castle (now a ruin), provides the large metal gateway at the eastern end of main street and the 100-acre castle lawn beyond. The village stands midway along the Beara-Breifne Way; an historic Waymarked Way for walking, cycling and heritage. Eyrecourt is served by two public houses, a post office, library, shop, garage and fast food outlet, pharmacy, tractor dealership, medical centre, primary school, several small enterprises and the Meelick-Eyrecourt GAA club. Various groups and classes use the village hall, including for Pilates, martial arts, scouting, art classes, badminton and other sports. Every second year in June the village hosts a festival of early machinery, the "Eyrecourt Vintage Festival", when old tractors, steam-engines and early farm machines are displayed. Each September Eyrecourt also hosts an agricultural show, which includes livestock shows and baking and gardening competitions. Eyrecourt is approximately 70km from Galway and 150km from Dublin.
