Unusual burial place of the Bernard Family who once owned Kinnitty Castle. Well sign-posted in village.

Cool Pyramid in Ireland

Can't go in but you can walk around. Short walk from the church. Information plate near pyramid. You could see it from our B&B the Ardmore country house.

Why Not?

I had read about it before hand but didn't realize it was so close to our B & B. We could see it from the front stoop. We walked out and looked around. It's so odd the way we memorialize our selves.
Just a note, the place where we stayed was built by that family. They lived in Kinnitty Castle.

Fun Find
Aug 2019
We were driving through a small Irish town and I was like "Whoa! Did I just read that right?" We turned around and, sure enough, a small sign advertised the Bernard Family Pyramid behind a small stone church.

We followed the path to it and there was a small honest to god pyramid that is doing duty as a mausoleum for several family members.

It was a fun find and a great place to stretch your legs a little.

Cool find
Jul 2019 • Family
If you are driving through I would for sure walk up to see it. It’s very interesting to know that we have a pyramid in Offaly. We stayed in Kinnitty for 2 nights and only because I read about it in a tourist leaflet I wouldn’t have known it was there. Not worth going out of your way for the 5mins to see and read about it but cool nonetheless.

The last thing you'd expect!

Kinnity is a tiny quiet village. The last thing you woudl expect to find is a Pyramid based on the Egyptian ones.

visit Mrs Peavoy in the old shop nearby and she'll fill you in on the history of it.

My family and I drove to see the pyramid. It was nice to see, but I wouldn't drive out of my way to see it.

A Pyramid in Ireland ?
Sep 2018 • Friends
We found this beautiful stone pyramid when strolling around the village of Kinnitty. It was built in the 1800's by the local landlord as a burial chamber for his family. It is a four sided pyramid built on top of a hill at the rear of the church. The way the pyramid was built is amazing.
