One of around 20 remaining round towers in Ireland, this is the tallest and begs the question of how the tower was accessed as a refuge as the doorway is about 7 metres off the ground. A lovely place to wander around, quiet, green and...More

My husband and I enjoyed the ruin site on our recent trip to Ireland from Florida. It was fascinating to walk through the cemetery and remains of the cathedral. A great deal of history is found here. Recommend a stop here!

Just find your way to Gort, it's not far out of the town. If you take the R460 out of Gort to Corofin, you can't miss it. It's on your right. Well worth a visit
