The first two towers are close to the road and well visible.


Castlejordan is a bunch of houses in the Meath countryside. Next to a group of houses there are three towers, the remains of what should have been the defensive towers of a castle. The main building is hidden by a thick covering of ivy and it's hard to understand that the three towers are part of the same structure.
The first two towers are well visible at the entrance of the courtyard of the houses, the third tower is at the far corner of the structure and is better visible only if one walks around it along the path. This third tower is the tallest one and may resemble the Wonderful Barn.
The land is private and on the day we were there some lambs were grazing the grass, so we thought not to disturb them.
