I worked on the road beside this tower and i have no doubt that this is the beginning/entrance to one of the most beautiful parts of Ireland. The boyne valley from this point to drogheda will incorporate the beauty of Killarney, with myth and legend,...More

Lovely round tower in a peaceful graveyard just off the N51. Plenty of parking available and with it being within a graveyard free to enter. Make sure you pay your respects to the unnamed croppy on your way through.

Nice place to visit for a bit of local history. One or two information plaques dotted about explaining what the sites are and there is ample car parking. Bear in mind that this is a cemetery also, so please visit with respect.

During a recent trip to Co Meath we discovered this charming little graveyard with the remains of a church and an exquisite round tower. A peaceful place and well worth a short visit.

This little graveyard is worth the stop along Ireland's Ancient East, as the round tower is perfectly preserved.

We stopped to see this on the way to another castle. A typical Irish cemetery. I didn't see anything that explained what the tower was used for, but I assumed it was part of a church.

The whole Meath/Louth area is a treasure trove for tourists and locals alike. I've spent many days visiting historically important places close to Dublin. Today I went to Donaghmore Round Tower which was built in the 11th or 12th century on what is thought to...More
