Notes:
The spiral stairs in Killahara is in its original form and in excellent condition. Unusually, it has hand rail. Movement between levels is therefore relatively easy. Nevertheless it is an ancient stone structure spanning 5 levels and there are various common-sense safety precautions that we ask all guests to observe in relation to the stairs as well as doorways and passage ways. If you would like to see a copy of these before you decide to make a booking, we will gladly email a copy to you.
