The Round Tower, the only survival of an early monastery founded by Moholhmór, is the only round tower in Ireland with a hexagonal base. It was probably builty sometime in the 11th century. The tower has a basement and five storeys with the hexagonal base rising to half-way up the first floor. The floors were supported by flagstones projecting inwards towards the centre of the tower. In the mid-19th century it was again used as a bell-tower. The adjoining St. Batholomew's is a beautiful church typical of it's time period of the mid 19th century. The church and tower are only about 20 drive from Clonakilty in the Enniskeane direction.
