Shandon Tower in the northside of Cork City. The present tower was re-built in 1722 having been destroyed in the siege of Cork in 1690. It was increased in height in 1750 to accomodate the famous bells which can be heard across the city from time to time. For more information see here.
If you’re visiting Cork, it’s well worth a visit. The view from the top is amazing and you can play tunes on the bells, if you’re musically inclined, or just play them all at once like most people if not :).
