  • This strange tower with a lighthouse lantern sits on top of a hill with a great view over the plains of Meath. It does open for public visits from time to time, but it was closed the day we visited. I...  more »

  • It's only open very seldom.... but we got to go up. 😊 It's not for the very unfit (the climb) but great views when you get there. It is the only inland lighthouse in Ireland and one of very few in the world. The views from the bottom of the spire are nearly as good, so go even if you aren't able to get up to the top. Free entry.
  • If you get the chance to go up, it's worth it for the views. It's basically an inland lighthouse that was used to watch the hunting on the nearby lands apparently, don't miss the free tours during heritage week in July. It's not open daily. There is a playground nearby which is ideal for families
  • A must see. Spectacular view from the top
  • Great place for family with kids. Nice quiet and peacful
  • Some amount of steps but the view is worth it! It's kept open by volunteers from what I gathered so fair play to all involved!
