Video of Mountbellew, County Galway, Republic of Ireland

Mountbellew or Mountbellew Bridge (historically Creggaun, from Irish: an Creagán, meaning "the rocky place") is a village in County Galway, Ireland. It lies mostly within the townland of Treanrevagh (Trian Riabhach) on the N63 national primary road.

The town consists of many shops and small businesses. There are four schools located in the town, St. Mary's National School,Colaiste an Chreagain Holy Rossary college and the Franciscan Brothers Agricultural College.

There are many historic and scenic points throughout the town which include: The Bellew Estate and woodlands, a small lake, the old forge and the Catholic Church. The Bellew estate was once the home of the Grattan-Bellew family, famous Galway parliamentarians during the 18th and 19th centuries. Their demesne is now a delightful wooded area of forest walks and picnic areas, filled with interesting historical items. The village bridge also contains a rare milestone inserted in the middle of its parapet.

Mountbellew Agricultural College is owned and managed by the Franciscan Brothers. Their mission is to provide a comprehensive and competitive range of training programmes for those engaged in Agriculture and food related sectors. The programmes have the maintenance and enhancement of the environment, countryside and rural communities as their major priorities.

Mountbellew has many sporting societies. Mountbellew Moylough GAA club plays both hurling and Gaelic football. The club colours are black and amber and play in Mountbellew/Moylough GAA grounds. The senior football team have won four Galway Senior Football Championships, 1964, 1965, 1974, 1986.

A monument to the famous racehorse Bobbyjo can be seen in the town centre. He won the Irish and English grand nationals.

The River Shiven is nearby, which provides some excellent fly fishing for brown trout. The town also has a fine 18-hole golf course, set amongst some beautifully wooded scenery.

Mountbellew is also home to the Malthouse Players, a small but very active drama group. The Malthouse Players typically stage two productions each year and partake annually in national competitions. The group on two occasions won the All-Ireland one-act drama finals.
