In addition to being one of the most complete round towers in Ireland, Timahoe is also one of the most decorative. That distinction comes from its rare Romanesque doorway with its four levels of carved design. As is the case with Irish round towers, the door is about 15 ft (5 meters) off the ground, but still visible from below.
It’s located in a peaceful wooded clearing immediately beside a church, cemetery, and castle remnants. A pedestrian bridge connects the site to the center of the village.
