Newtown Castle is a 16th-century tower house, located close to the village of Ballyvaughan within the Burren area of County Clare, Ireland. Uniquely for a tower house of its type in Ireland, Newtown Castle is round but rises from a square pyramidical base. It is today part of the Burren College of Art.
I saw Ross Castle in Killarney, Ireland during the day, but Pierre's night shot is much more gorgeous than my photos haha. Photo credit to Pierre Leclerc Photography. His shots of Ireland are beautiful!
Irish round towers – literally "bell house") are early medieval stone towers of a type found mainly in Ireland, with two in Scotland and one on the Isle of Man. Though there is no certain agreement as to their purpose, it is thought they were principally bell towers, places of refuge, or a combination of these. The towers were probably built between the 9th and 12th centuries.
