Aghadoe

 

Aghadoe

Aghadoe is possibly Killarney’s most romantic vista. It provides a panoramic view across glistening lakes and mysterious islands with the MacGillycuddy Reeks forming a perfect backdrop stretching from the twin hills in the Southeast, known as the paps, to awesome Carrantuohill in the Southwest. The area is also renowned for its historic and archaeological importance. St. Finian Lobhar founded a Monastery here in the 7th century, and the ruins of a round tower and church date from the 12th century. Outside the church stands a round tower approximately 22 feet high, built by Auliff Mor na Cuimsionach.
