Mountbellew or Mountbellew Bridge is a town in County Galway, Ireland. It lies mostly within the townland of Treanrevagh 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.
