Actually a nice site but the tower as well as the surrounding were closed because of building constructions. The old monastery is beautiful and just nearby.

Lovely little spot worth a detour to check out, we enjoy visiting when we're over and there's room to park up and get out for a look.

we were curious so took a visit to the tower . It stands over a small graveyard . The burials are both old and some new ones. The tower has been restored and is quite amazing. Worth a visit

My daughter and I visited this wonderful round tower on a beautiful winters day in Jan 2017. It was more like a summers day and the experience is one that all of us should enjoy. Visit as soon as you can.

Great tower renovations all complete now , don't pass this place , love the graveyard too , when you look up it makes you think how it was completed, but it's a fine piece of architecture .

Great historical site but very few visitors when we went. As good as the best round towers in Glendaloch.

This is a wonderful example of a Round Tower being lovingly restored by a group of hardy stonemasons. The wind was biting on the day I visited, it must have been even worse working higher up, but stone by stone, the work is being done....More
