The OConnell Tower Glasnevin

Tower

Tower

One can now climb the O’Connell Tower – Ireland’s tallest round tower for the first time in over 45 years. As you pass through the ornate crypt of Daniel O’Connell, you begin the journey to the top of the monument built in his honour.

After a comprehensive restoration programme, the staircase in the tower is now accessible, complete with an exhibition about the legendary figure himself and the fascinating history of the tower.

Once at the top, you will enjoy 360-degree panoramic views of the sprawling grounds of the cemetery, the city of Dublin, Wicklow and the Irish Sea.
