Beautiful replica of an Irish round tower floating gracefully into the Irish Sea. Watching the sun come up here is a sight to behold. One of Northern Ireland’s hidden treasures.

Lovely day out here last summer with elderly parents and took a picnic. Great views and good parking . Just chilled with them watching the antics of the gulls.

Chaine memorial tower is very pretty and a great photo opportunity. This stands just outside the town center in Larne on the coast road. It is a memorial tower that commemorates James Chaine. Worth seeing very simple but elegant.

Walk past the Chain Memorial Tower in the direction of the Larne Leisure Centre and follow the coastal path til you reach a green area on the embankment. This is Chaine Memorial Park. It is quite a steep walk to get up into the park...More

We were at Chaine Tower, always an impressive sight, when the lady with me voted to see where the shoreline path to the north went to. We went around a few bends where the sea was lashing to one side, and tall impressive winter trees...More

Came here at the start of a walk. Had never spotted the tower before when sailing out of Larne. A lot of history to the tower and this was well explained via tourist information boards at different points.
