This is a very fine example of an early 17th century planter's bawn. It was built about 1609 by John Dalway. It was a rectangular bawn with four round flanking towers, three of which still exist.

Exterior of the bawn showing two of the corner towers

The inner faces of the towers are square with crow-stepped gables. There would have been a dwelling house in the middle but this is now gone.
