Near the visitors? center and museum is a large round tower, built in 1124 by Turlough O?Connor and O?Malone (successor of St. Ciaran). It was struck by lightning in 1135 and the present top is of a later date. As it normally the case, the doorway is well above ground level. It is faced with rectangular limestone blocks.
