The beautiful round tower in the town of Cloyne is one of only two such towers remaining in County Cork. It was part of a monastic foundation thought to have been established in the 6th century.

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. You cannot currently go inside the Tower but you can see the exterior of the Tower.
