GMIT Five Campus Open Day
Saturday 12 March 2022
, 10am - 1pm

Welcome to our Mountbellew Campus

About the Campus

Established by the Franciscan Brothers in 1904, the Mountbellew campus was the first agricultural college in Ireland. The original college was demolished in 1971 and later replaced with a new building in 1975. In 1986, the Franciscan Brothers Agricultural College established a link with GMIT to deliver a Higher Certificate in Business Studies (Agri-Business). Today, GMIT students in Mountbellew can choose between three degrees (Rural Enterprise & Agri-Business, Agri-Engineering or Agriculture & Environmental Management), and spend their time between the Mountbellew campus and the GMIT Galway campus.

About Mountbellew

Mountbellew is a quiet, but growing market town 45kms from Galway city on the N63 road to Roscommon. It is situated by the River Shiven, and offers excellent fly fishing, an 18-hole golf course, beautiful woodlands, forest walks and picnic areas.
