Worth the climb for the view

The ‘Cheese Tower’ is accessed from the tourist information office. There are many steps to climb, but once you reach the top the view of Clint town is amazing. This wonderful view then also helps your understanding as you take your tour of the town.

easy climb

For a few euro, we had a fun time climbing the tower, learned some about the local history and attractions from displays on each level, and when we got to the top the views were great. It can be a bit breezy when the wind is blowing!

Worth the climb

It's 120 steps to the top, but the panoramic views are worth it! The "windows" at the top are covered with metal screening to keep the people in and the birds out -- but they have put hinged doors in each section, so you can open them to take photographs. No wire overlay on your photos! Entry is through the Tourist Information Office on the ground floor; 2 Euro admission fee.
