Cloyne Round Tower


Republic of Ireland

The town of Cloyne houses a beautiful, old round tower that was once part of a medieval monastic settlement, thought to have been established by St Colman in 560. The structure is one of only two such towers existing today in County Cork.

In recent centuries, the tower underwent renovations after lightening struck, destroying the original conical roof.
