Detached circular-plan single-storey dovecote, built c. 1500. Coursed rubble limestone walls and domed roof with limestone coping to top of wall. Square-headed opening to north-west side with roughly dressed limestone lintel.

Appraisal

This dovecote, situated in a prominent location within the grounds of Kiltinan Castle, retains its original form and materials. It is a valuable document and fine example of the extent and activities of this demesne in previous centuries.
