the martello tower a music room

Garinish Island GlengarriffAccording to Harold Peto’s plans the lower floor of the Martello Tower was to become the ‘garden room’, the first floor (which you still can access through the steps) was to become the music room (right he was, fabulous acoustics!) and the wall around the nowadays 360-degree-viewing-roof was to be extended and provided with a roof. A view through a balcony straight to the temple across the Happy Valley should have made ‘Mrs. Bryce’s room’ a real exquisite hideaway. Her and Annan Bryce’s bedrooms were planned to be left- and righthand to the music room.
