COMMENTS for Tower Hill 1 of 1
The Tower is not the summit
Short Summary created by mcrtchly, thomas_g,  23 Jun 2014
Tower Hill (which is not the true summit) lies in the northern part of the Marquis of Waterford's Curraghmore Estate. The hill is mostly forested but contains an interesting round tower constructed by the first Marquis, George de la Poer Beresford to commemorate the death of his son in a riding accident in 1785. Access to this forested area is via one of the forest entrances from the W, S, E and N all of which, except the west have parking. The west entrance can be accessed from the parking area at Curraghmore church.

The true summit is about 300m north of the forested area and outside the estate walls. It can be reached by parking at S44662 18440 A beside a forest entrance north of a minor road Carrick-Suir to Portlaw. Don't take the forest entrance but cross through the gate of the adjacent field. Cross a couple more fields (with electric fences) and the summit is in the corner of the third field besides the edge of the forestry. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1236/comment/15480/

Many thanks to mcrtchly. thomas g for summary on Tower Hill. followed their excellent advice about true summit. started at S44662 18440, from here across the road through the fields to the top took me approx 10mins of easy walking, in the first field there a curious looking small concrete water tower. Fantastic views towards Croughaun and the Comeraghs from here.. Distance from car to car approx 1.2km. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1236/comment/17547/
