A beautiful timepiece in a pretty village with a shamrock-shaped base

Enniskerry Clock Tower is located in the middle of Enniskerry village in County Wicklow. It was commissioned by the 6th Viscount of Powerscourt to commemorate 100 years of the creation of The Viscounts of Powerscourt. The monument was presented to the village on St. Patrick’s Day 1843 and an interesting feature of the monument is that its base is in the shape of a shamrock! It is classified as a ‘free-standing renaissance style 3 stage granite clocktower’ which is a bit of a mouthful. Further up the road is the stunning little forge building that repaired the horseshoes that pulled the carriages to and from Dublin.
