O’Brien’s Tower overlooks the Cliffs of Moher in County Clare. The tower was built in 1835 according to the Wikipedia page on the building.
The tower was built on the Cliffs of Moher in 1835 by local landlord Sir Cornellius O’Brien as an observation tower for the hundreds of Victorian tourists that frequented the cliffs during the time. On a clear day the view can extend as far as Loop Head at the southern tip of Clare and beyond to the mountains of Kerry. Looking north from O’Briens Tower, on clear days, you can see the Twelve Bens in Connemara (also known as the Twelve Pins) beyond Galway Bay, and typically the Aran Islands to the west.
