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