GUINNESS TOWER

Rated 1 out of 5

Described as a hidden gem due to it being surrounded by tall trees in a woodland area near Ashford Castle in Cong, the Guinness tower, otherwise known as Leonard’s tower, is like a castle out of a fairytale.

The tower was built by Sir Benjamin Lee Guinness on the grounds of Ashford Castle in 1864 and it stand’s over 20 metres in height. There is a steep climb on a spiral staircase to the top but you are rewarded by stunning tree tops views over the Ashford Estate.
