A 16th century rectangular tower of four storeys and an attic in the gable. Tradition says that it was built by the O'Moriartys but it was probably built by the Ferrises. The third floor has fine triple-mullioned windows on the north and south sides, those on the north side having representations of doves on the outside. There are two bartizans on opposite corners of the tower which have holes for muskets.
It is beautifully situated on a peaceful stretch of the River Laune, with a good view of Carrantuohill – Ireland's highest mountain.
