The Round Tower itself is interesting to see. However you CNN’s only see the outside if the tower and nothing else to see other than the Witches Stone. I live a few hundred yards away and walk round it a few times every week

Great example of the round tower and witches stone. Good open space in the park. Would be good to develop the area further to make it an even more interesting stop off.

The round tower is in excellent condition and the park around it is well maintained. It is easily accessed on foot or transport and disabled access is feasible. The Council intend spending money on this site so it will only improve.

The round tower is a delight to visit so simple and in the heart of the town. Just a short walk from the main Bus and train station with open gardens and fields surrounding. Information is poor about the tower but it's a great place...More

Hidden in behind a housing estate in Antrim, you would never know this lovely historic building stands. It is one of the very few round towers still standing in Ireland. It is not far from the train and bus station!

Interesting tower,set in a very small park. Nice to visit and have a quick walk round. Historic yes,but its right next to the old abandoned council offices on one side,a school on the other and across the road from a housing estate.

Having visited the round tower at Devenish Island our visit to the Round Tower was disappointing. Overgrown with grass and neglected one of our best tourist sites is in needed of some local support from MPs etc
