We stayed at The Cliff House and enjoyed the "Cliff Walk" immensely. Our walk took us back through town to the hotel and it was here we visited the Round Tower and surrounding grounds. Please don't miss this opportunity to walk around and enjoy yourselves!

Very pretty. Beautiful grave yard if you can say such a thing. Elevated beautifully but definitely not a climb for people with poor mobility. Lovely view from it.

We drove up to see the round tower not knowing much about it at all. The ruined church and tower are remarkable. While we were standing around, an older gentleman approached us and handed us a xeroxed history guide to the site. Fairly typical of...More
