Sitting above the River Nore and located on the edge of a hill that looks over the town of Inistioge, county Kilkenny is a 17th Century viewing tower.

The building would have been a family home when built, with its main living and sleeping area and outer rooms. It also has a cattle stable at the front of the building for wintering the family livestock.

The hill down to the river has been forested in modern times but before this would have offered full views of the town and the river Nore as it flows towards New Ross.

If you do visit Woodstock, Kilkenny, this little building is well worth a visit.
