Near O'Brien's Tower there is a car park and viewing platform for visitors. O'Brien's Tower, a circular castle-style structure was erected in 1835 by Cornelius O'Brien.

Excerpt from Message

Yesterday we arrived in Galway and hired a car to drive us to Clare. We visited Lisdoonvarna, Cliffs of Moher, and Ma’s farm – very nice people. We stayed about an hour – took pictures. We met a Mrs. Drane from San Diego. I gave her your address – she traveled on the train with us. I’m writing this on a boat to the Aran Island from Galway Bay. Sister Josephina
