Meelick Round Tower

Meelick Round Tower

West Ireland | County Mayo

Meelick Round Tower is located about 6 km southwest from Swinford in County Mayo (on a side road just next to the N5). It was built probably at some time between 923 and 1013 AD and is the only preserved structure of the St. Broccaidh's monastery which was here. The tower is about 21m high, its diameter is close to 5.5 m and the doorway is placed 3,5 m above the ground. Unfortunately, the tower cap and bell-storey are missing. The old gravestone attached to the tower's base, dates from the 10th or 11th century and has interlacing ornament and old Irish inscriptions. Meelick Round Tower is in the very short distance (approx 16 km) from National Museum of Ireland - Country Life and Turlough Round Tower.
